GB on track for Davis Cup success?

GB on track for Davis Cup success?

For the first time in 34 years Great Britain are in the semi finals of tennis’s Davis Cup. Thanks to a stirring fightback from Andy Murray against Gilles Simon in the decisive rubber of their quarter final clash against France on the weekend, team captain Leon Smith’s men made it through and will face Australia in the final four in September.

Andy Murray was the backbone of the British effort, winning both of his singles matches and pairing up with brother Jamie to win a double match. Murray is now the highest ranked player left in the Davis Cup, eleven places higher than any other competitor.

So Britain have a big ace up their sleeve and will play the semi final on home soil, and are currently running as 13/8 favourites at Coral to win the event outright. Should they win through, they will face the winner of Belgium and Argentina in the final.

Great Britain’s semi final opponents Australia fought back from 2-0 down against Kazakhstan in their quarter final match and have their threats in Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios. The Aussies go as a 3/1 quote to win the tournament, the same price as Belgium and Argentina.
