Sport360 - - Top 5 -

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.
