Anyone watching this?

Murray won the first match against Donald Young earlier today, and James Ward was expected to lose to John Isner, and at 2-0 down that looked certain.

But now it's into a deciding set and Ward just had a break point to serve for the match. - view external link (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/tennis/31580921)

I don't know if Davis Cup has 5th set tiebreak (i'm about to find out) but it'd help him if it didn't.

According to his Davic Cup record and the ATP tour website, he's never won from 2 sets down.

Who, Ward?

Yes. Though if we're being honest, he's seldom in matches that can go to 5 sets.

The good news is that there is no tie-break, and he's playing John Isner, a player who has literally never shown an ability to endure long matches. Ever. Well, apart from that one time.

Yep.
Ended up looking at his stats. Thought he'd come back from 2-0 last year. l was wrong.

But Ward has certainly been playing the better stuff this last set.

That's great news. I saw a bit of Murray and he did his stuff but Ward was losing when I peeked. Well done the lad. Inspired by the Scottish support of the Englsh! :D

Andy Murray outed Dominic Inglot's bit-on-the-side in Glasgow on TV. Inglot has had a girlfriend.

Nice job, Andy! - view external link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QKH1tcjwoI)
