Watching the Davis Cup match in the Emirates Arena it was hard not to be inspired as the match was played in such an amazing atmosphere.

Andy Murray put Britain in the quarter final by beating John Isner in the first of the singles matches on Sunday.

An emotional Murray paid tribute to the team and the crowd for their support in Glasgow. He also hinted that he would like to go back to Glasgow for the quarter-finals against France in July.

How refreshing it was to see a pulsating five set doubles match in the Davis Cup tie between Great Britain and the USA.

The final score was 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-7, 9-7 in favour of the legendary Bryan Brothers who kept the USA team in contention going into the final day.

Dominic Inglot and Jaimie Murray came so close to causing yet another upset after James Ward's heroic effort against big serving John Isner in the second singles rubber on Friday.

The British pair lost the first two sets comprehensively but clawed their way back into the match to force a fifth and deciding set. It is very rare to see doubles matches on national television so to see the world’s greatest doubles team the Bryan Brothers in action was a treat for most tennis fans.

If the Lawn Tennis Association wants more people playing tennis they should look televise more doubles encounters.

Will Great Britain make it past France in the quarter-finals?
