Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Irish Racing -

JAMIE MURRAY en­joyed a happy home­com­ing as Great Bri­tain bat­tled back from a set down to win the cru­cial Davis Cup dou­bles rub­ber against Uzbek­istan in Glas­gow.

Bri­tain take a 2-1 lead into to­day’s re­verse sin­gles.

Murray, fresh from his US Open mixed dou­bles win with Bethanie Mat­tek-Sands, was made to bat­tle be­fore he and Dom In­glot over­came De­nis Is­tomin and San­jar Fayziev 4-6 7-6 6-2 6-3 in two hours 54 min­utes.

Murray said: “We were fight­ing hard, but couldn’t quite find a break.

“We were so close to be­ing two-sets down but then we re­laxed a bit and played re­ally well in the last two sets.”

Bri­tain must win the tie to be seeded in Fe­bru­ary’s qual­i­fy­ing tour­na­ment. GREAT BRI­TAIN’S Vicky Hol­land is the world triathlon cham­pion.

The Olympic bronze medal­list, 32, over­hauled ti­tle ri­val Katie Zaferes dur­ing the fi­nal two miles of the run.

Hol­land said: “I can’t ac­tu­ally be­lieve it.”
