Big big win, surely GB are heading to the SF now!

Win the Davis Cup on your own? It's no problem!

This changes everything. Of course a lot could happen after this, but this might be GB's -- and Andy's -- best chance for DC if Belgium-Argentina-Kazakhstan are in the SF as there are no big Doubles Threats there compared to Canada or Australia while in Singles Serbia or Australia could be out which means the highest ranking player Andy could probably face on forward is Goffin! :eek:

Nico Mahut was quite bad at the end of the match. And our team was really bad with returns.

Great play by the Murray bros. Congrats to them.

Now it's going to be very very hard for France, too bad the draw to final was good this year. :facepalm:

Awesome job from both. Rusty start from Andy in the opening game, but both served well and controlled the match thereafter. Still work to be done, but it's hard to see Gilles or Richie beating Murray over 5 on his home turf.

I liked how Fleming was gunning for Castle today, much like he was gunning for Inverdale in the Wawrinka/Gasquet match.

Only I think Tsonga is shit in doubles and always was?
Actually Nico was the weak link after the first set, which was kinda surprising given his good doubles play recently.

Pierre is # 20 in doubles and beat Brians and very many strong commands with Mahut in this year. There ALWAYS was fight even when they lost matches.

Pierre is 15-5 in doubles on big tournaments last year.

Nice win by the Murrays. Only faced BPs on the first service game where Andy was broken (he seemed to take a while to get into the groove of playing doubles) and on the last game to serve it out. Crucial 3rd set TB separated the two teams for the first time, some great returns from Andy to win it - although Jamie Murray was probably the MVP for most of the match. After that the French faded (wrong line call on a Tsonga serve didn't help) and the Murrays were in flying form until a nervy last game.

Murray had a bad fall before serving to reach the 3rd set TB, obviously didn't hamper him for this match but hopefully it won't be an issue for tomorrow either (injuries can be fine to play through immediately but become an issue after a day or two). GB were in the same position at in the QFs last year before Murray lost to Fognini so nothing is a given. This is a different Murray and a different place of course, but there is still a good French player for Murray to get past if GB is to advance.
