It was a brilliant start to the draw for Great Britain as they looked to reach the semi-finals for the first time since 1978, picking up a 3-0 quarterfinal victory over France on Friday.
Andy Murray’s comeback saw him comfortably secure his 100th Davis Cup win for Britain, in what was a grueling day at the All England Club. The home side took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five tie, thanks to Murray’s first-day 6-3, 7-6, 6-4 triumph over Julien Benneteau and a fighting performance from brother Jamie Murray as he and Dom Inglot won a five-set match.
The second day of action was especially dramatic as Edmund outpaced Kristoffersen to set up a fascinating match against Kei Nishikori – last year’s finalist. Kyrgios gave the home fans, as well as the team’s approach to Davis Cup, something to think about as the Australian drew with Noah Rubin, then he ran out a 3-0 winner.
Murray’s comeback victory saw Great Britain earn a historic 3-0 triumph, moving them to the semi-finals where they will face the Czech Republic in two weeks’ time.
