Britain in Davis Cup for first time in decades

As we wait for US Open to begin the 31st of August we can already now start to look forward to a historic event for the UK as the Davis Cup semifinals are set to take place from the 18th September to the 20th. On the one hand Great Britain will be playing against Australia and on the other it will be Argentina versus Belgium.

Britain has not been able to advance into the Davis Cup semifinals in 34 years, however Andy Murray’s victory over French Gilles Simon on Sunday opened up a spot for Britain into the semifinals. The last time Britain reached the semifinals was back in 1981 where they got defeated by Argentina. It has always been a hurtful experience to watch as Britain get’s eliminated from the Davis Cup time and time again. This time they made it and Britain will hopefully go on to the finals.
