BRITAIN play their first Davis Cup semi-final in 37 years today and Andy Murray is the man with most responsibility on his shoulders.
The Scot has pretty much carried the team this far with his contribution and once again will have to deliver in the showdown with Australia. Murray plays the first singles rubber against world No.71 Thanasi Kokkinakis and is huge odds on at 1-18 (Boylesports) to get his team off to a winning start.
It’s the pair’s first meeting and to get the job done in straight sets Murray is 4-7 at Betway while a 3-1 win for the British No.1 pays 4-1 at Marathonbet.
I’ll be at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow cheering on Murray and Co although I don’t hold out much hope of an upset when surprise pick Daniel Evans takes on Bernard Tomic in the day’s second match.
The British No.8 has been given the nod ahead of James Ward and Kyle Edmund and is 47-10 underdog against the erratic Aussie, 1-5 at Coral, who lost his only previous meeting with Evans at the 2013 US Open.
The other semi-final sees Belgium battle Argentina and the singles today are David Goffin against Federico Delbonis and Steve Darcis taking on Leo Mayer.
