Murray Eyes Davis Cup Q/Final For UK

Andy Murray will try to put Great Britain in the last eight of the Davis Cup for the first time since 1986 against the USA on Sunday.
US doubles pairing Bob and Mike Bryan overcame Colin Fleming and Dom Inglot 6-2, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 to keep the home team’s hopes alive in the best-of-five series on Saturday.
GB stormed to a 2-0 lead on the opening day in San Diego as world Number 175 James Ward pulled off a surprising five-set victory over Sam Querrey, ranked 49th. Andy Murray had earlier demolished Donald Young in straight sets.
If the Wimbledon champion can defeat his American opponent Querrey in the reverse singles, Great Britain will be through to the last eight of tennis’ international team competition for the first time since 1986.
GB’s Ward is scheduled to face Young if the tie goes to a fifth match. Britain have not beaten the USA in the Davis Cup since 1935.
