In beating Russia, Murray and Robson have become the first British team to reach the final of the competition.

“I have to say thanks to Laura because she played great,” said Murray after their victory.

“In the mixed, the guy is supposed to try to dominate and help the girl but every time I tried that we lost the point, so I left it to her after that.”
