Andy Murray and the GB team did all us proud on Sunday and, after 79 years, brought home the Davis Cup trophy to Great Britain.
But there are a few reasons why this victory has been such an emotional one.
- 5 years ago, Captain Leon Smith inherited a team that was on the brink of relegation to the lowest tier of the competition.
- Great Britain is now the joint-third most successful Davis Cup Nation with France. USA leads at number one, with Australia in second place.
- Murray’s outstanding win on Sunday meant he contributed 11 of Britain’s 12 winning rubbers in this year’s World Group Campaign.
- Murray is the first player ever to win eight ‘live’ singles rubbers in a Davis Cup year.
- Murray has become the first player to win three live rubbers in the final since Pete Sampras in 1995.
For tennis fans, 2016 promises to be an epic one for Great Britain.
