Never Hurry a Murray.

England’s Cricketers may have headed home with their tails between their legs but sports fans in the old country have an achievement to be proud of. Great Britain has made the quarter finals of the Davis Cup for the first time in over quarter of a century.

Great Britain disposed of the USA in part thanks to 175th ranked James Ward who beat Sam Querrey. Ward won 10 of the last 11 games to grab a five set come from behind triumph following Andy Murray’s win over Donald Young a replacement for John Isner.

This was Great Britain’s first Davis Cup win over the USA since 1935. The team then included Fred Perry. This win sees Murray again follow Perry after becoming the first Briton to win at the All England Club since Perry in 1936. It was also the first time that Great Britain had made the quarter finals since 1986.

Britain will now face Italy in the semi finals after they defeated Argentina 3-1 on Sunday. Could Andy Murray spearhead a Great Britain Davis Cup win? If he can it would be a remarkable achievement and one that no one saw coming, but there is still a great deal of tennis to be played.
