"THE BRITISH ARE BACK, THE BRITISH ARE BACK"

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 79 YEARS THE DAVIS CUP SITS  IN THE COUNTRY WHERE TENNIS ROYALTY REIGNS AND WHO OTHER THAN ANDY MURRAY LED THE CHARGE WITH HIS BROTHER RIGHT BY HIS SIDE TO DEFEAT THE BELGIANS.
THIS IS HOW THEY HLED ON TO THE REIGNS TO GET T THE DAVIS CUP FINAL:

ROUND                      RESULT

FIRST ROUND             BEAT UNITED STATES 3-2 AT HOME (INDOORS)

QUARTER-FINALS        BEAT FRANCE 3-1 AT HOME (GRASS)

SEMI-FINALS              BEAT AUSTRALIA 3-2 AT HOME (INDOORS)

FINAL                         BEAT BELGIUM 3-1 AWAY FROM HOME (CLAY)

THEY WON ON 3 DIFFERENT SURFACES, THEY WON AWAY FROM HOME AND THEY WON WITH HIS BROTHER JAIME MURRAY, KYLE EDMUND, JAMES WARD AND CAPTAIN FOR 5 YEARS LEON SMITH.  THE BRITISH HAVE WON THE CUP 10 PREVIOUS TIMES BUT NOT IN 79 YEARS.  ANDY HAS IGNITED BRITISH TENNIS WITH HIS WIMBLEDON WIN IN 2013 ENDING ANOTHER DROUGHT OF 77 YEARS.  "THIS WIN GIVES A MASSIVE BOOST TO BRITISH TENNIS AND I HOPE THE LTA CAN CAPITALISE ON IT AND BRING EVEN MORE PEOPLE INTO THE SPORT."  ANDY FEELS THAT HIS MOTHER HAS GIVEN A LOT TO THE LTA IN ENGLAND AS HE STATED SHE CAN'T KEEP DOING IT ALONE AS JUDY MURRAY OPENED LTA'S-MISS-HIT PROGRAMME - AN INTRODUCTORY COURSE FOR GIRLS AGED BETWEEN FIVE AND EIGHT - AND A SCOTTISH-BASED  SCHEME, TENNIS ON THE ROAD. ANDY HOPES TO GET KIDS INTO MORE PROGRAMMES, CLUBS, GOOD COACHES THAT TURN UP IN LL WEATHER AND BANG  OUT GREAT SESSIONS. LET'S HOPE IT HAS A POSITIVE INFLUENCE.  THE LTA WAS CRITICISED FOR FAILING TO CAPITALISE ON MURRAY'S WIMBLEDON VICTORY IN  2013 WIT PARTICIPATION LEVELS FALLING IN THE AFTERMATH.  IN THE MOST RECENT FIGURES RELEASED BY SPORT ENGLAND, FOR THE SIX MONTHS UP TO MARCH 2015, TENNIS PARTICIPATION WAS UP.

AMERICAN TENNIS PRODUCES PLAYERS BUT NOT LIKE IN THE PAST WHERE THIS COUNTRY HAS WON 32 DAVIS CUPS. IF THEY CONTINUE TO WORK WITH INNER CITY DEVELOPMENT WE CAN GET THE CUP BACK.. THEIR ARE GREAT PROGRAMS ACROSS THE COUNTRY SO THEIR IS NO REASON FOR US NOT TO HAVE INSPIRING PLAYERS BOTH BOYS AND GIRLS. 

OTHER DAVIS CUP WINNERS OVER THE LAST 100 YEARS ARE:

USA 32
AUSTRALIA 28
GREAT BRITAIN 10
FRANCE 9
SWEDEN 7
SPAIN 5

FOR THE RECORD:

* ANDY HAS WON 27 OF HIS LAST 28 SINGLES MATCHES IN THE DAVIS CUP HIS ONLY LOSS SINCE 2005 COMING AGAINST ITALIAN FABIO FOGNINI IN LAST
YEAR'S QUARTER-FINAL IN NAPLES.

* MURRAY BECOMES THE FIRST PLAYER TO WIN THREE LIVE RUBBERS IN THE FINAL SINCE AMERICAN PETE SAMPRAS IN 1995.

* ANDY'S WIN OVER DAVID GOFFIN ON SUNDAY MEANT HE CONTRIBUTED 11 BRITAIN'S 12 WINNING RUBBERS IN THIS YEAR'S WORLD GROUP CAMPAIGN.

* HIS 11 WINS ALL CAME IN LIVE RUBBERS, MATCHING IVAN LJUBICIC'S FEAT FOR CROATIA IN 2005.  HOWEVER, MURRAY ENDED THE YEAR 11-0, WHEREAS LJUBICIC'S WAS 11-1 HAVING LOST A SINGLES IN THE FINAL AGAINST SLOVAKIA.
