Andy Murray broke down in tears on Sunday after leading Great Britain
past Luxembourg 4-1 in the Davis Cup, overcome by making a rare
competitive appearance in his native Scotland.
Murray wept after
his 6-4 6-3 6-1 victory over Gilles Muller earned Britain a
Europe/Africa Group II play-off against Hungary later this year.
watching James Ward seal a 4-1 triumph with a comfortable 6-1 , 6-3 win
in a dead rubber against Mike Vermeer, Murray said: “It was one of
those things, I wasn’t expecting that to happen.
“Davis Cup is just different to all the other tournaments and that showed today.
“(The Scottish crowd) makes a difference, I don’t get that chance very often.
“It’s the first time in a long time that I got the chance to play in Scotland.
“The last tie I was really ill right before the tie against Serbia, I was sick just before the doubles game.
thought I was jinxed because when we played against Ukraine I got
really ill when I came back from Dubai. I lost loads of weight and
couldn’t play. I’m glad I was okay this time.”
