Andy Murray reflects on ‘amazing’ GB Davis Cup final win
Andy Murray reflects on helping Great Britain secure Davis Cup glory for the first time since 1936
An emotional Andy Murray could not hide his delight after helping Great Britain win their first Davis Cup title since 1936 with victory over Belgium in the final in Ghent.
The world No2 beat David Goffin 6-3 7-5 6-3 to give the visitors an unassailable 3-1 lead in the best-of-five tie.
“It’s obviously an amazing feeling. I imagine it will take a few days before it really sinks in.

“I probably haven’t been as emotional as that after a match that I’ve won. I’ve been pretty upset having lost matches before. But I’d say that’s probably the most emotional I’ve been.
“It’s incredible that we managed to win this competition. I didn’t know that would ever be possible. It’s great.”

He continued: “I think the rest of the year when you’re playing, you don’t get atmospheres like that in any event that we play during the year except during Davis Cup.
“That’s what happens when you get your country involved, people become more passionate. I think that’s the same for all of the players, as well.

“That’s why the level of play I think is so high. I think Goffin played a good match today. I can’t remember loads about it.
“But most of the players play at an extremely high level and I think it is because there is a bit more passion there when you’re competing for your country.”
