Davis Cup USA vs Britain: Ward tops Isner in 5 sets

Davis Cup USA vs Britain: Ward tops Isner in 5 sets

James Ward beat John Isner 6-7 (4), 5-7, 6-3, 7-6 (3), 15-13 in 4 hours, 57 minutes at Davis Cup.

It was the longest U.S. Davis Cup match since the introduction of the tiebreaker in 1989.

The victory put Britain 2-0 ahead and on the cusp of a second straight win over the United States in the first round of the World Group. But the overall score - and Murray's impressive win over Donald Young at the start of the afternoon - was largely forgotten about in the joyous late-evening celebrations inside the Emirates Arena.

When Isner sent a backhand volley into the net on his opponent's sixth match point, Ward threw his racket toward the net, pumped his chest and looked into the air. Then he hugged Britain captain Leon Smith, lapped up the applause of the crowd and made his way wearily over to Murray, who was close to tears.

Andy Murray Australian Open Final Interview

Andy Murray Australian Open Final Interview

Q. Can you describe how your emotions were going as it ran away from you near the end?

ANDY MURRAY: Well, obviously had opportunities in the first three sets. Then the fourth set, I mean, obviously I need to watch it back to see if I played badly. I mean, he was just ripping everything. Returns he was hitting on the baseline, this far from the line all the time. Once he got up a break, he just loosened up and was just going for his shots. I couldn't recover. So the fourth set wasn't as frustrating to me. The third set was frustrating because I got a bit distracted when he, like, fell on the ground after a couple of shots. It appeared that he was cramping, and then I let that distract me a little bit. That's what I'm most disappointed about, not so much the fourth set because I think, especially at the end of it, he was just going for everything, and it was going in. But the third set was more frustrating for me.

Q. Do you think he went for broke at the end because he was afraid of a fifth set, that he thought he couldn't last a fifth set?

ANDY MURRAY: No, I don't think so, because he was moving unbelievable at the end of the third set, sliding and chasing everything down. I think it was just more that once he got up he loosened up a bit, and then was just going for his shots. Maybe if he started to miss a couple, then you kind of rein it back a little bit. But he wasn't missing, so he just kept going for it.

Q. Tell us what it means to be in your fourth Australian Open final, eighth of your career Grand Slam final?

ANDY MURRAY: It's great. I played very, very well tonight. Very happy with the way that I played the match. And, yeah, to be in the final four times here, I mean, because I'm surrounded by guys like Roger, Novak and Rafa, doesn't look like much, but that doesn't happen that often. So I'm very proud of that.

Q. Talk us through what changed between the first and second sets, so different.

ANDY MURRAY: Well, I thought the beginning of the match he started out well. I was a little bit tentative at the beginning and getting used to his ball. He hits the ball extremely hard and flat. At the start I felt like I was on the back foot a little bit. Towards the end of the first set I started to come into it more, be more aggressive. Then second set I just picked up from how I was playing at the end of the first. I felt like I could have won the first set. Obviously had some chances there. I was extremely aggressive in the second set. Managed to run away with it.

Andy Murray Betting Odds

Q. As a man who likes his football, was that the perfect away performance?

ANDY MURRAY: Yeah, I mean, I didn't go into it obviously thinking like that. I was, yeah, just trying to win against Nick, which was tough 'cause he has an exceptional serve and makes it very difficult for you when he's serving. And, like I said on the court afterwards, it was very tricky conditions, as well. So I was quite happy with the way I handled everything tonight.

Q. What was the wind doing out there? Was it swirling?

ANDY MURRAY: No. The end where we walk out onto the court was a really strong breeze. When you were at that end you were playing with the wind, so it was tricky 'cause it was very strong breeze. When you're down the far end of the court you had to do a lot more defending. If you tried to play with any sort of height the ball was dropping short. It was very easy for me or him to attack. So, yeah, I tried to just keep the ball low from that end, used a lot of slice, and played pretty flat. So it was tough for him and it worked.

Murray beats Dimitrov, reachs Australian Open quarters

Murray beats Dimitrov, reachs Australian Open quarters

Andy Murray beat Grigor Dimitrov 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 7-5 in a fourth-round match that started Sunday but continued into the early hours of Jan. 26, the national holiday that regularly occurs during the Australian Open.

Midway through his match against No. 10-ranked Dimitrov, who beat him in the Wimbledon quarterfinals last year, Murray heard a distinctive roar that started somewhere in the distance and echoed through Rod Laver Arena.

"I heard a lot of noise - I had to ask my box what it was for," he said. It was for 19-year-old Nick Kyrgios, who came back from two sets down and saved a match point to beat Andreas Seppi 5-7, 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (5), 8-6 on Hisense Arena - the No. 3 court at Melbourne Park - to become the first Aussie male to reach the last eight at the Australian Open since Lleyton Hewitt in 2005, and the first male teenager since Roger Federer in 2001 to reach two Grand Slam quarterfinals.

Murray, who was broken when serving for the second set and lost the subsequent tiebreaker, rallied from 5-2 down in the fourth set to beat Dimitrov, who shattered his racket on the court after surrendering his last service game.
