Get in there Wardy! Served like a boss, over 30 aces.

We've played well enough to go to a decider.

So happy for James - best medicine ever for dealing with the disappointment of losing the match to Donskoy on Friday.

Dima was strangely flat after winning the third set and never really got his level back. Commentators were speculating he wasn't physically at his best.

Jesus... And I thought Tursunov played horribly on Friday...
There was a 5-6 game stretch in the third set when Mitya kind of resembled a tennis player. Other than that it was not even a club level performance. Doublefaulted thrice to fall a break behind early in the 4th set and it was all over -- he proceeded to produce a grand total of 10 clean groundstrokes for the remainder of the match. The rest were either horrific shanks or failed moonballs. I know he's unfit and caught a cold but what happened today is inexplicable.
Kudos to Ward for not choking at the finish line. It would be great for GB to win the tie from 0-2 down without Murray.

Fantastic performance by Wardy today Thought he is done after the 3rd set loss, but no, somehow he managed to take control of the match by playing solid, aggressive tennis. Happy for him as well, especially, after that tough loss to Donskoy 2 days ago.

Before this match Tursunov was 4-0 in five-setters at Davis Cup and 6-1 in live rubbers overall with the only loss to Roddick in Portland in 2007.
