Dan Evans and Neal Skupski were the names on everyone’s lips in Manchester as Great Britain progressed to the quarter-finals
As Andy Murray completed his comeback against Switzerland’s Leandro Riedi on Friday during an unforgettable Davis Cup week in Manchester, his victory maintained the standards of one of the all-time great careers in the competition: across his 18 years, Murray holds a 33-3 record in singles.
It is a reflection of his greatness but also of the state of British tennis during much of his premiership. In order for Britain to achieve anything at all as a national team, such excellence was required of him every time he stepped on to the court. When he lost, Britain failed.
