GB Davis Cup team

Despite a nervous start, Andy Murray had a solid 7-6 6-3 7-6 win over John Isner. Britain will face last year’s finalist , France in July for a place in the semifinals. A big challenge for Team GB as France has 4 top 20 players in the team (Gilles Simon, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Richard Gasquet and Gael Monfils) and a brilliant doubles pair (Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut).

James Ward

History seems to repeat itself: last year in San Diego, James Ward (ranked 175 at the time) pulled off a five-set upset over Sam Querrey to give Britain a 2-0 lead. This time, he rallied from two sets down to beat world number 20 John Isner in a marathon match 6-7 5-7 6-3 7-6 15-13 in just under 5 hours in front of an ecstatic crowd.

Andy Murray

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.
