The Netherlands eliminated Great Britain by Norrie and Murray


the double of Netherlandswith the Wesley Koolhof and Matwe Middelkooptilt the tie in Glasgow in his favor against the Britain and left outside of Davis cup a Andy Murray and his team (2-1).

The Dutch bounced back from defeat in the first game of the day, when Dan Evans beat Tallon Griekspoor, and caused an upset in a troubled Botic Van de Zandschulp, who beat Cameron Norrie, and in the doubles, which sealed The Netherlands’ qualification and the United States for the Malaga Finals next November.

Evans, the British number 2, recovered from his loss in the first game against American Tommy Paul and took the first tie point against the Netherlands with a double 6-4 against Tallon Griekspoor.

Both tennis players started in a balanced manner with their serves, as the tulip player was the one who took more risks, although in the end the veteran Evans took advantage of him, needing only a ‘break’ in each set to get the match in one hour and 42 minutes.

Van de Zandschulp made the third match of the tie possible after defeating Cameron Norrie in straight sets (6-4, 6-2), with a quick result given the British tennis player’s lack of success.

Both sets had moments of mismatch for the British number one as Zandschulp used Norrie’s serve and then a winner that left the Netherlands alive with the tie and the possibility of sealing their place in the knockout stage . of the tournament this Friday, without having to wait for the final match against the United States.

For Zandschulp, this meeting also served to avenge last month’s heavy defeat against Norrie at the Masters 1,000 in Montreal, when the Briton narrowly let him win three games.

In another long night in Glasgow, the doubles were once again decisive. Andy Murray, separated from the singles and destined for the doubles match, again made up with Joe Salisbury, the world number one, but once again luck eluded them. The tulip pair, formed by Koolhof and Middelkoop, prevailed in almost three hours by 7-6 (0), 6-7 (6) and 6-3.

The decisive match of the tie reached the third set after two ‘tie breaks’ where the Dutch first team gave no option 6-6 (0-7), while in the second the British saved a match point to send the cross into the third quarter.

With the Glasgow crowd on edge, Murray and Salisbury, just as they had against the United States, fell in the final set and ended Britain’s hopes of reaching the finals in Malaga.
