Glasgow to host Davis Cup semi

Published 1 Comments

Glasgow will witness Great Britain's bid for a first Davis Cup final berth since 1978, with the Emirates Arena set to host their World Group semi-final against Australia.

The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) on Wednesday announced the venue for the September clash, with Britain securing their last-four spot with a 3-1 win over France in July at the Queen's Club in London.

A return to indoor climes in Glasgow will also bring back memories of Britain's 3-2 first-round win over the United States in March this year, where Andy Murray beat Donald Young and John Isner in the singles rubbers.
