Madrid, Feb 4 (IANS) Spanish doubles pairing of Feliciano Lopez and Pablo Carreno claimed a straight sets win over British duo of Jaimie Murray and Dominic Inglot to give Spain a 2-1 advantage in the Davis Cup tie.

The Spanish took advantage of Inglot’s inexperience to break his serve on two occasions as they ended up winning a tight match 6-4, 6-4, 7-6(4), reports Xinhua news agency.

Lopez and Carreno gave Murray and Inglot few options in the match as the British duo had only one break point all game, which came in the second game of the match.

Lopez’s service especially was impossible for the British duo to deal with and the Spanish are now clear favourites to win the tie.
