RIGHT ON KEW Gardens blooms in St Leger for Moore and O’Brien
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.”
