Andy Murray was an emotional wreck after a Davis Cup win earlier

The Scot ensured the Great Britain team made it to their first semi-final in over three decades.

WE’VE SEEN HIM shed a few tears before but Andy Murray was very emotional earlier today after clinching a semi-final place for the Great Britain Davis Cup team for the first time in 34 years.

He got the better of Frenchman Gilles Simon in four sets – the match lasting three hours and 26 minutes.

It was Murray’s 23rd win in 25 Davis Cup matches – a staggering statistic.

It sets up a semi-final meeting with Australia and should GB get past that, they’ll meet either Belgium or Argentina in the decider.

Their last appearance in a Davis Cup final was in 1978 and you have to go back to 1936 to find the last time they were crowned champions.
