Great Britain Davis Cup Final 2015
great Britain are targeting their first Davis Cup title in 79 yearsReuters

Last year's Davis Cup final between Switzerland and France was filled with stars, with Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka at one end and the likes of Gael Monfils, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Giles Simon at the other. This year, though, only Andy Murray really stands out, as Great Britain look for their first Davis Cup title since 1936 when they play Belgium in Ghent.

Both teams were not expected to make it to the final, considering their overall strength, but they have found the right resources at the right time to snuff out the competition and with it fight for the biggest prize in men's team tennis.

David Goffin of Belgium and Kyle Edmund of Great Britain will open up the Davis Cup 2015 final in Ghent, knowing the importance of starting such a big tie with a win. Belgium have played some mind games already, with this Davis Cup final being billed as Murray vs Belgium.

"If you look at it that way, they're actually putting a lot of pressure on their own players in the other matches, to be honest," Murray said when he was put that question. "I'm happy to take as much pressure on my shoulders as is needed. I've been in that position a lot of times in my career. I think I will be able to deal with it OK.

"I also believe in all of the players in our team. Everyone, when they've been asked to, stepped up and performed extremely well in the Davis Cup. Kyle has a lot of weapons on the court. He has a lot of firepower out there. It's not going to be an easy match for David.

"Looking at it as Belgium versus me is actually counterproductive to them, if that's the case."

GB captain Leon Smith has put great faith in Edmund, who was picked for the first round of singles rubbers over James Ward, with the captain feeling Edmund, making his debut, is the better option on the red clay.

"The good thing that coincided with this tie was that the number two singles players had all come into good form," Smith said when asked to explain his decision of picking Edmund over Ward. "James won a challenger in India, Kyle had won a challenger in South America.

"It was actually a really good situation to be in. I think where Kyle's ranking sits now, and he's very comfortable on this surface, is why we're starting that way."
