DRIVING FORCE BEHIND DAVIS CUP GLORY
Murray ended another long wait for British tennis fans when in 2015 he all but single-handedly delivered the Davis Cup for Britain after a 79-year hiatus. Murray won his opening singles and teamed up in the doubles with brother Jamie to put them 2-1 up against Belgium in Ghent before sealing victory with a singles win over Daniel Goffin. He was smothered by his team-mates before being lifted into the air. “I probably haven’t been as emotional as that after a match that I’ve won,” said Murray, who had won all eight of his singles rubbers in the campaign.
