Great Britain (GB) have a wonderful opportunity to clinch the Davis Cup title as they head into the final day on Sunday with a healthy 2-1 lead over Belgium. GB just needs a single win on Sunday to clinch the prestigious title.
The Davis Cup finals did not start brightly on Friday for GB with their singles player Kyle Edmund losing the first match to David Goffin in an intriguing five-set affair. Goffin showed a lot of character to win the match 3-6, 1-6, 6-2, 6-1, 6-0. However, Andy Murray defeated Ruben Bemelmans in the second singles to make it 1-1.
The Murray brothers -- Andy and Jamie Murray -- looked in great touch in the doubles competition as they helped GB take 2 -1 lead after defeating the pair of Steve Darcis and David Goffin.
That has been the story so far.
Now the action shifts to the final day of the competition with Andy Murray having a chance of winning the Davis Cup final as he prepares to face Goffin on Sunday's first match. The match between the two players is expected to be top notch with both players confident after winning their respective first match on Friday.
If Goffin is to defeat Murray, the Belgian has to come up with an A-class game against the GB player, who is one of the best players in the ATP circuit. Murray looked in top form in the second singles on Friday and if the GB player comes up with a similar performance on Sunday, GB will lift the Davis Cup title for the first time in 79 years.
After having won the doubles competition, the GB have a huge advantage on Sunday. Belgium have to win both the singles matches if they are to win the Davis Cup title, which is not going to be an easy task for them.
Though experts might consider Andy as favourite in defeating Goffin, the GB player is aware he has to be at his best to defeat Goffin.
"Obviously to be up 2-1 gives us a better chance of winning. Only having to win one of those two is better than having to win both. But I'm not getting ahead of myself. I know how good a player Goffin is. You don't get to be ranked 16 in the world in today's game with the depth that there is if you're not pretty good at the game," Davis Cup official website quoted Murray as saying.
If Andy Murray wins his match against Goffin, it remains to be seen if the fifth match will be played as the decision remains with the two teams. However, in the event of Murray's loss the last singles match between Edmund and Bemelmans will decide the title.
Andy Murray is confident that his team member can help GB win the title even if he loses against Goffin.
"I still think we have a very good chance in both of the matches tomorrow. Even if I was to lose against Goffin, I think we have a very good chance in the fifth rubber, whoever plays for them," added Murray.
