Murray brothers win doubles to give Great Britain 2-1 Davis Cup semifinal lead

London, Sept. 19 (ANI): Andy Murray and his brother Jamie clinched a pulsating five-set doubles thriller on Saturday to give Great Britain a 2-1 advantage in their Davis Cup semi-final clash against Australia in Glasgow.

The brothers claimed a 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (6-8), 6-4 win over the Australian duo of Sam Groth and Lleyton Hewitt in a gruelling contest that lasted three hours and 56 minutes.

Reflecting on the match, Andy said that it was incredible to come back from losing the fourth set, adding that they stuck together and managed to find enough good returns at the end to come through, the Guardian reported.

Andy now has the chance to help Great Britain reach their first Davis Cup final since 1978 when he takes on Bernard Tomic in the first of Sunday’s reverse singles rubbers. (ANI)
