Andy Murray helped lead Great Britain to the Davis Cup title over Belgium after winning over David Goffin 6-3, 7-5, 6-3 to give the team an unbeatable lead. Murray put Great Britain up 3-1 in the best of five battle and it marks the first time that Great Britain has won since back in 1936.
Britain has won the team title 10 times and Murray now adds another major accomplishment to his career resume. The match against Goffin lasted nearly three hours for Murray and he was able to pull through to clinch the title for Britain. Great Britain previously won over the United States in the first round, France in the quarterfinals and Australia in the semifinals before winning against Belgium in the final.
Murray finished with an 8-0 singles record in Davis Cup play and Murray previously won over Ruben Bemelmans on the first day of play before the victory against Goffin. Murray won 11 points during the run and that helped clinch the 3-1 victory over Belgium. Murray said after the match that he will return for the first round tie against Japan, which will be in March, as the team tries to defend the win.
Murray said to the BBC that this match was his most emotional victory of his career, saying: "I've been pretty upset having lost matches before but I'd say that's probably the most emotional I've been after a win."
