Davis Cup 2015 R1: Andy Murray defeats Donald Young

For the second year in a row, USA and Great Britain meet in the Davis Cup first round. Last year in San Diego, Great Britain advanced to the Davis Cup quarterfinals for the first time since 1986, thanks to an 3-1 victory over the Americans in San Diego. Americans had strangely chosen to play on clay.
After Andy Murray’s easy win over Donald Young, world number 175 James Ward pulled off a five-set upset over 49th-ranked Sam Querrey. The Bryan brothers kept the Americans’ hope alive with a victory over Colin Fleming and Dominic Inglot, but Andy Murray sealed the British victory with a four set win against Querrey in the reverse singles.

Despite a loss of focus that cost him the fourth set, Scot hero Andy Murray dispatched Donald Young quite easily 6-1 6-1 4-6 6-2. A perfect start for Team GB! Enjoy a few pictures of the match:
