GLASGOW---Andy Murray beat
John Isner in straight sets to give
Britain an unassailable 3-1 lead in
the Davis Cup yesterday.
The fifth-ranked Murray overcame
a wobbly start in the first reverse
singles to win 7-6 (4), 6-3, 7-6 (4)
at Emirates Arena and clinch a first-
round victory over the Americans
for the second straight year.
Britain will host France in the
quarterfinals on July 17-19, with
Murray stating in the post-match
interview on court that his preference
would be to play on a grass court.
The big-serving Isner began
superbly but couldn t convert any
of his seven break-point chances in
the first set. Three of those were set
Isner made a double-fault on the
opening point of the tiebreaker for
the only break of serve. Murray, play-
ing in the city of his birth, broke
once in the second set and sealed
victory with an ace on his second
Moments after his 16th ace of the
match had drifted away from Isner,
Murray gave Britain captain Leon
Smith a long embrace and then high-
fived and hugged his teammates. He
then walked back onto the court,
looked up and let out a huge roar in
front of the 7,700-capacity crowd.
"It was one of the most special
atmospheres I have ever played in,"
said Murray, who was playing in
Scotland for the first time since 2013.
"To be in the quarterfinals for a
second year when it hasn t happened
for so long is incredible."
Britain hadn t been in the last
eight of the World Group before last
year since 1986.
Like in 2014, the US team is rel-
egated to the World Group playoffs
and will need to win to stay in the
Losing the first set was a huge
blow to Isner, who looked dejected
on his bench as he was consoled by
US captain Jim Courier. Murray
didn t make a dent in Isner s huge
serve and scrambled to hold his own
as his slow, often short second serve
Isner had two good looks at two
second serves on set points in the
10th game, but slammed a forehand
long after a tense rally before slapping
a return into the net. Murray saved
a third set point with an ace.
Ironically, it was his serve that let
Isner down in the tiebreaker, with
the opening double-fault a rare lapse.
A backhand return for 5-2 kept up
Murray s momentum and Isner
returned into the net on set point.
A fist-pumping Murray wheeled
away in celebration after the securing
the only break of the second set in
the sixth game, when his perfectly
judged lob ran away from 6-foot-
10 (2.08-meter) Isner, whose turning
circle was slow.
The third set also went with serve
to the tiebreaker. Murray went a
mini-break up with a smash in the
fourth point and, after sending a
backhand into the net on his first
match point, he made no mistake
on his next opportunity.
Britain s path to victory followed
the same course as last year in San
Diego --- two wins in the opening-
day singles, a defeat in the doubles,
and a win for Murray in the first
reverse singles. (AP)
FRANKFURT---Germany won the
reverse singles yesterday but France
went through to the Davis Cup quar-
terfinals and a match against Britain
with a 3-2 victory.
With France holding an unbeatable
3-0 lead after Saturday s doubles, the
reverse singles were reduced to best-
of-three sets in the dead rubbers.
Philipp Kohlschreiber beat Gilles
Simon 7-6 (5), 6-4 in the first match
on Sunday and Davis Cup newcomer
Jan-Lennard Struff defeated Nicolas
Mahut 7-6 (6), 6-3.
The quarterfinals are July 17-19.
Serbia also won both reverse singles
for a 5-0 victory against Croatia.
Filip Krajinovich defeated Franko
Skugor 6-4, 6-2 and Viktor Troicki
defeated Mate Delic 6-4, 6-3.
The reverse singles were shortened
because Serbia already had an insur-
mountable lead after winning the
doubles on Saturday.
Serbia will play either Argentina or
Brazil in the quarterfinals.
It was the second meeting between
Serbia and Croatia since the breakup
of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s. In
2010, Djokovic led Serbia to a quar-
terfinal victory in Split en route to its
first and only title. Croatia won the
Davis Cup in 2005. (AP)
