Andy Murray and Jamie Murray brought the house down in Glasgow and another point home for Great Britain with a thrilling doubles win in their Davis Cup semi-final against Australia.
The two brothers beat Sam Groth and Lleyton Hewitt 4-6 6-3 6-4 5-7 6-4 to send Great Britain into a 2-1 lead in the tie, with this stunning forehand from Andy putting them on the cusp of victory.
A tense and fascinating contest reached peak levels of drama late in the fourth as Great Britain saved three set points in the 10th game, and then broke to earn a chance to serve out for the match.
But Hewitt fought with typical determination as the men from Down Under reeled off four points in a row to force a tie-break in which the Brits had match point before the Aussies won it 8-6.
The decider went with serve for the opening nine games, in part due to the superb returning of Australian veteran Hewitt in perhaps his final Davis Cup match ahead of his January retirement.
But a misjudged leave from Groth opened the door for the Murrays to clinch the break which secured them victory after nearly four hours, and sparked wild celebrations inside the Emirates Arena.
GB are looking to reach their first Davis Cup final since 1978, and now hold an advantage going into Sunday’s singles matches between Andy Murray and Bernard Tomic, and Dan Evans and Thanasi Kokkinakis.
Double Grand Slam champion Andy got his team off to a winning start by thrashing Kokkinakis on Friday, before Tomic levelled the tie with a four-set victory over world number 300 Evans.
