Norrie Seals Davis Cup Win For GB

Norrie seals Fayziev victory with a bagel as Great Britain beat Uzbekistan

Cameron Norrie defeated Sanjar Fayziev in straight sets to wrap up a 3-1 Davis Cup win for Great Britain against Uzbekistan in Glasgow.

Jamie Murray and Dom Inglot's victory over Istomin and Fayziev in the doubles on Saturday gave Britain a 2-1 lead and Norrie the opportunity to make amends for his loss to Karimov.

There was, at last, some variety in Norrie's shot making while his deep forehand kept Fayziev firmly on the defensive.

The first set felt messy as Norrie made heavy weather of his chances at times and seemed to get to a double break cushion and then the first more by luck than judgement.

'I'm pretty grateful to be part of the team again, ' he said. The crowd were awesome.

There was redemption, too, for Norrie, the British number two who on Friday was two sets ahead and had a match point in the third-set tie-break of his match against Jurabek Karimov, only to choke spectacularly and lose in five.

"Thanks to all the team, and big congrats to the Uzbek team, you fought like dogs". It was a first home tie for me and I'm very proud.

Maria Kyriacou, President, International, ITV Studios said: " Bodyguard has gripped the [UK] with its twists and turns". Executive producing the series are Jed Mercurio, Simon Heath for World Productions and Elizabeth Kilgarriff for BBC.

"Obviously I was nervous coming into the tie today but the crowd got me through it". This year's World Group semi-finalists France, Spain, Croatia and the United States have already clinched a spot for the 2019 Davis Cup finals event.

"I gave everything I could on Friday, I was obviously really disappointed but I didn't get over the line there and today I was in exactly the same mind-set". It also meant there was no threat of relegation in this play-off.

GB captain Leon Smith said: "It's been fun but there's a lot more to it than fun, there's a huge amount of pressure so an very bad lot of credit to Cam".

"We have a great team spirit". Some people said this was a meaningless tie but look at the Uzbekistan team, look at the crowd. It was hardly meaningless, it's been brilliant.

GB Team Captain Leon Smith is now at least assured that a seeding should help us avoid some of the high-ranked teams, but the February Home/Away tie still falls to host nations, and their ability to put on a show ought to be considered in the factors when it comes to wildcards. We wanted to win this so we're seeded for the draw.

"Once we find out who we are playing in February, or if we get a wild card, then we will look forward to whatever the challenge is, whether it's February or into the finals we want to be there and see what it's like and be successful".
