Today it is Jamie Murray and Dominic

Inglot. I say the all-important

0:00:420:00:48

doubles match because what happened

yesterday, Liam Brodie stepped out

0:00:480:00:52

onto court, played very well but

lost in straight sets. Then out came

0:00:520:00:57

22-year-old Cameron Norrie making

his Davis Cup debut and a similar

0:00:570:01:00

result looked likely as he was 2-0

down and a break of serve down and

0:01:000:01:04

then this happened.

0:01:040:01:07

COMMENTATOR: For the second time,

Cameron Norrie, to the delight of

0:01:130:01:16

his captain, breaks straight back.

Definitely have to give Norrie a lot

0:01:160:01:21

of credit in this third set. It

would've been so easy to disappear.

0:01:210:01:25

He has not done that. Is right back

in this set. Stunning touch.

0:01:250:01:36

in this set. Stunning touch. And

what a way to get the break. Cameron

0:01:370:01:40

Norrie will serve for set number

three.

0:01:400:01:48

three. Great Britain have been

working hard for nearly five yards

0:01:490:01:53

and they do have something to smile

about. They've just taken their

0:01:530:01:57

first set of the weekend. To visit

effort. -- terrific effort for the

0:01:570:02:05

nice. It's almost like he's trying

to teach himself how to play on clay

0:02:050:02:09

in this very match. It so good, so

clinical. Great play.

0:02:090:02:20

clinical. Great play. How is that

for a hole? Three break points

0:02:200:02:23

saved. He has got the break. He

deserves it. Made it! The shot of

0:02:230:02:34

the match? He is absolutely inspired

just now. Amazing! He has got the

0:02:340:02:42

double break in the fourth set.

Would you believe it? Cameron Norrie

0:02:420:02:50

has taken Roberto Bautista Agut the

distance here.

0:02:500:02:59

distance here. The thinking, let

alone the execution, that's just too

0:02:590:03:02

good.

0:03:020:03:08

good. Three break points saved. How

damaging could that be for his

0:03:080:03:11

opponent? Norrie breaks. Amazing.

The quality of the tennis right

0:03:110:03:20

now... Norrie holds. Fall apart,

full of guts. Plenty of big points

0:03:200:03:31

in this matter. This maybe is the

biggest so far.

0:03:310:03:39

biggest so far. Norrie has got the

double break. It is 5-2, final set.

0:03:390:03:43

He will be wrapped in cotton wool if

you get this done. He is making it

0:03:430:03:48

look easy. Two match points.

0:03:480:03:55

Has there ever been a better debut

in the Davis Cup than that? Cameron

0:03:590:04:06

Norrie, from 2-0 down, has won it to

level the tie. A start has been born

0:04:060:04:12

in Monday.

Thanks to my team. The

barmy Army up there. I looked at my

0:04:120:04:21

forehand the whole match and just

made a point by point. Obviously I

0:04:210:04:27

was a little bit nervous. I'm really

pumped with my efforts and it's

0:04:270:04:31

given me a lot of confidence. I'm

just stoked.

I'm almost a little bit

0:04:310:04:35

lost for words. They fight like

hell. If the quality can come with

0:04:350:04:42

that, we always said no matter what

happened, if you win or lose there

0:04:420:04:45

will be something to be gained from

playing away in Spain. The

0:04:450:04:49

clay-court against top 20 players.

He's gained a lot more and he fully

0:04:490:04:54

deserves every bit of praise he

gets.

There will be plenty of praise

0:04:540:04:57

from the studio here. John, first of

all, what a massive upset but what a

0:04:570:05:05

great comeback.

It was one of those

matches where you are watching it

0:05:050:05:09

and you can't believe what you are

seeing. I was watching it thinking

0:05:090:05:14

this can't be happening. It was

brilliant. 2-0 down and the break

0:05:140:05:19

against a world-class player on your

debut, your first professional

0:05:190:05:23

clay-court match, and it made him

look like he was the class player

0:05:230:05:26

and his opponent was a rank amateur.

It was brilliant, as a performance.

0:05:260:05:32

Jamie, you are watching not so

closely. He just got better and

0:05:320:05:35

better and no sign of nerves on his

Davis Cup debut.

Watching it back,

0:05:350:05:41

it almost happened so quickly. At

the end he ran away with it.

0:05:410:05:46

Watching so many things you can talk

about comments tactics about how he

0:05:460:05:50

went about the match, they were

spot-on and he executed it

0:05:500:05:54

perfectly, but the main thing

really, we heard him say it at the

0:05:540:05:57

end, it felt like he was tougher.

That an astonishing statement for

0:05:570:06:01

your first match, and, to be honest,

it's a massive positive sign of

0:06:010:06:05

things to come and how he can, if he

can put it in the gold box, and take

0:06:050:06:10

it onto the tour, I don't

0:06:100:06:18

it onto the tour, I don't think you

can underestimate how powerful that

0:06:180:06:20

will be for him going forward.

Also

he'd never played more than three

0:06:200:06:22

sets. He's at the change of ends,

how are you feeling, and he said he

0:06:220:06:25

backs himself against this guy. No

physical problems at all.

Yes, he

0:06:250:06:29

didn't sound cocky, he was just

stating the fact that physically he

0:06:290:06:33

was ready to go. He looked like he

could play another two sets. The

0:06:330:06:37

nerves, the tension of playing your

first match on clay, your legs would

0:06:370:06:41

feel it and he would start to get

tired, but his opponent wilted

0:06:410:06:46

fulfil it was staggering, what a

performance. It's tough to put into

0:06:460:06:50

words how great this was.

A

staggering performance will stop

0:06:500:06:53

let's hear more from Leon Smith the

British captain about this youngster

0:06:530:06:57

was pulled off this massive upset.

Above all, he had to show incredible

0:06:570:07:04

hard and fight, 2-0 down, against

someone that much higher ranked than

0:07:040:07:08

you on a clay court, in their

backyard, its first and foremost,

0:07:080:07:13

you had to work extremely hard

that's what he did. He just started

0:07:130:07:18

a process, it was great, got the

break back, to get back on serve,

0:07:180:07:22

and then he built himself into the

match and started dictating a lot of

0:07:220:07:26

the points. I also think he invested

well. A couple of very, very long

0:07:260:07:31

rallies and he came out on top and

he sent out a very good message he

0:07:310:07:34

was physically ready to go the

distance and he kept saying to me at

0:07:340:07:39

the end, I backed myself physically,

so that was giving them confidence

0:07:390:07:42

that he could go deep in the match,

and then, of course, not just your

0:07:420:07:47

heart which has to take it, you have

two plates brave tennis and executed

0:07:470:07:51

and he did it well with his drop

shots. A good sense of when to come

0:07:510:07:56

forward and finish at the net, and

everything was impressive.

As he

0:07:560:08:04

said, he took so much from the team

and the barmy Army, as he called

0:08:040:08:08

them, he's very much a team man

having come through college tennis

0:08:080:08:12

and relief arrived on the

atmosphere.

He did, use the energy

0:08:120:08:16

in the crowd on the stadium, the

whole experience is unbelievably

0:08:160:08:20

well but that, yesterday, for me, it

was a journey of beliefs also the

0:08:200:08:24

start of the match really well and

he thought he was in this match and

0:08:240:08:27

then went through a dodgy spell when

he last seven games in Rome and you

0:08:270:08:32

thought all the belief was seeping

out and you thought, OK, there's no

0:08:320:08:36

way back but sure enough,

step-by-step, point by point, he got

0:08:360:08:39

a gift of a game at 1-0 in the third

set which I think was the massive

0:08:390:08:44

turning point in the match and from

there on in it was flawless. The

0:08:440:08:50

variety of his play combined with a

heart was unbelievable to watch.

If

0:08:500:08:54

you wear captain, you were in that

seat thinking of where the two

0:08:540:08:58

captains are, you would rather be

Leon Smith, wouldn't you because

0:08:580:09:02

neither of his players played to

their full ability?

No, to be

0:09:020:09:06

honest, in the first match, the

Spanish player was shaky. If you

0:09:060:09:12

look at Liam Broady, he had set

points in the third set, and in the

0:09:120:09:17

second match, I don't know what went

wrong with him. To be honest I was

0:09:170:09:21

surprised at the way the captain who

was talking to the players

0:09:210:09:23

particularly in the first match, and

the captain was still have a go at

0:09:230:09:29

him, and when you have got players

ranked as high as they are, a

0:09:290:09:33

captain, normally you don't say too

much, you encourage sharing their

0:09:330:09:36

thoughts when you have young players

on the court, then you get into

0:09:360:09:40

their heads and really help them but

I thought he talked too much and I'm

0:09:400:09:46

not sure the players liked it.

It's

always difficult playing a hungry

0:09:460:09:51

young person as a top-ranked player

and that's what happened with Liam

0:09:510:09:55

and Cameron yesterday, so it means

we are poised at 1-1 going into the

0:09:550:09:59

second day of this type and the

doubles, well, we're hoping so much

0:09:590:10:02

for Jamie Murray and Dominic Inglot.

They are up against Luciano Lopez

0:10:020:10:10

and then tomorrow, they have got

five players in the team and we

0:10:100:10:18

don't know whether either will be

used, the singles players who played

0:10:180:10:21

yesterday. Maybe he will bring in

Pablo Carreno Busta and David

0:10:210:10:27

Ferrer. We haven't got a clue what's

going to happen and no one will know

0:10:270:10:30

until tomorrow because they don't

have to let anybody know until one

0:10:300:10:33

hour before play and it's going to

be fascinating, isn't it?

I think

0:10:330:10:37

from Great Britain underboss point

of view, it depends on what happens

0:10:370:10:40

in this match and how Kyle Edmund is

feeling fulfilled if we win the

0:10:400:10:44

doubles and our 2-1 up, I would not

be surprised to see Cameron Norrie

0:10:440:10:49

staying in and then Kyle Edmund

coming in to give as potentially the

0:10:490:10:53

best chance of pulling out what

would be an incredible upset. Nobody

0:10:530:10:57

gave us a chance before the match

started.

When you look at all five

0:10:570:11:01

players ranked inside the top 40, no

chance, it just shows how amazing

0:11:010:11:07

this competition is, so we're down

to the doubles now and Jamie and

0:11:070:11:11

Dominik are playing. Pablo Carreno

Busta and Cristiano Lopez. We can

0:11:110:11:17

hear from the British pair.

He will

be selling some cannons, Felly, and

0:11:170:11:27

that will be making returns and

putting the ball in court, so we

0:11:270:11:30

will just have to find a way to

manage it, but they haven't played

0:11:300:11:38

together and that could be a bonus

for us but these guys are

0:11:380:11:41

exceptionally good and clay-court

doubles is different to the standard

0:11:410:11:45

faster called so you have to stay

back a bit more and we will try to

0:11:450:11:50

put our spin on things and hopefully

come out successful.

How do you

0:11:500:11:54

prepare for this, Jamie come in

terms of getting used to the clay?

0:11:540:11:57

You haven't had much time to make

that transition.

I think the guys

0:11:570:12:02

are in that situation coming back

from Australia, playing a lot hotter

0:12:020:12:05

weather, faster conditions,

different balls, as well. Here it is

0:12:050:12:11

quite cold. I think we still have a

good game. I've had a good bit of

0:12:110:12:19

success against those guys on clay

before so I know what I can do that

0:12:190:12:23

they don't like and maybe tried to

do that on Saturday.

And what don't

0:12:230:12:27

they like? I suppose that's pouncing

all over the net which is what he

0:12:270:12:32

does so well, Jamie Murray.

Yes,

he's brilliant at that. Dominic

0:12:320:12:36

Inglot goes for the big shots and

Jamie polishes them off at the net.

0:12:360:12:40

I think we are slight favourites in

this match for them it will be a

0:12:400:12:44

tough one, I think.

Looking at the

Spanish pair, Lopez, huge service,

0:12:440:12:50

and Pablo Carreno Busta also was a

tough player.

Lopez has played

0:12:500:12:54

doubles in the Davis Cup and have

been playing here for many, many

0:12:540:12:57

years but the British team will be

trying to take time away from the

0:12:570:13:00

Spaniards but Davis Cup doubles on

clay will be a roller-coaster.

Also

0:13:000:13:05

thriving on the momentum of

yesterday, so we already now for

0:13:050:13:08

this doubles match and we can join

it. It is just under way for the

0:13:080:13:13

Jamie and John are on their way to

the comedy box to join Chris Bradman

0:13:130:13:16

and it's just in the first game of

the match. All yours, Chris.

0:13:160:13:22

COMMENTATOR: A shaky start in the

first couple of points but an ace

0:13:220:13:27

has got him to 15-30 in this opening

game. Missed by a whisker.

0:13:270:13:42

game. Missed by a whisker. Pablo

Carreno Busta's first time they're

0:13:420:13:44

playing together, the Spanish pair.

Lopez is far more experienced. In

0:13:440:13:51

Davis Cup.

0:13:510:13:58

Great defence. Great atmosphere.

Both sets of supporters. First break

0:14:150:14:25

point.

0:14:250:14:33

Didn't look shaky from Dominic

Inglot who's been such a great team

0:15:040:15:10

member over the years for Team GB.

So often he's had to sit courtside

0:15:100:15:14

for the entire weekend. He has won

two of his Davis Cup rubbers. Both

0:15:140:15:25

of them with Jamie Murray. The

perfect start for the home side.

0:15:250:15:31

8000 seats. Pretty much packed.

0:15:310:15:36

CROWD CHEERS

0:16:500:16:54

Tensions running high. It's a huge

match.

0:17:170:17:25

The doubles always is.

0:17:250:17:34

13 degrees. Jamie Murray looks

freezing! Really wrapped up for

0:17:430:17:47

this. I hope he has got... Maybe

he's got an injury and is keeping

0:17:470:17:53

warm but, fashion wise, come on,

Jamie, really?

0:17:530:18:05

Serving and staying back. Still

difficult to get your head round

0:18:150:18:20

that when you watch that in doubles

with the server and stay back. But,

0:18:200:18:25

on clay, it's effective.

0:18:250:18:28

Murray quick to get into sees the

net and break back the point.

0:18:390:18:46

The home crowd is in much better

voice.

Yes, I think they realised

0:19:360:19:42

that they got to try and make it

look and feel like a home match

0:19:420:19:48

yesterday. It didn't look that way

at all.

0:19:480:19:54

at all.

It's always been pivotal,

the doubles in Davis Cup, and to

0:19:540:19:58

have a regular pay is such a fillip

for nations, but not many do these

0:19:580:20:02

days.

Lopez was a mainstay of the

Spanish team for years and years.

0:20:020:20:14

Lopez played in the 2003 final. In

2017 he still playing tennis at the

0:20:140:20:21

absolute highest level. Quite an

achievement, isn't it?

Yeah.

0:20:210:20:27

Huge gap down Inglot's line.

0:20:400:20:48

Lucky to get away with that.

0:20:480:20:51

Ranked tenth in the world in

singles, Pablo Carreno Busta, 78 in

0:21:000:21:05

doubles. This is just his sixth

Davis Cup rubber, in total. Strength

0:21:050:21:10

in depth.

0:21:100:21:18

A lefty playing on the right court

for Spain.

0:21:270:21:32

Love hold to get on the scoreboard.

Obviously Jamie Murray and Dominic

0:22:330:22:40

Inglot play doubles all the time but

for the others, they played doubles

0:22:400:22:48

too but not many of the top players

do that any more.

Yes, that is the

0:22:480:22:52

pity, really. We would like to see

more of the top players playing

0:22:520:22:56

doubles but you just don't see it.

In the Davis Cup, if you can get a

0:22:560:23:01

partnership that plays a little bit

regularly, it certainly helps and

0:23:010:23:04

obviously it helps the United States

for many years having the Bryan

0:23:040:23:08

brothers.

I wonder, there's so many

reasons you could look at for that,

0:23:080:23:14

aren't there? For the singles

players. They have shortened doubles

0:23:140:23:21

matches so you had the sudden death

tie-break. That doesn't seem to have

0:23:210:23:26

sparked any more activity from the

top players. Is that because the

0:23:260:23:30

prize money is not worth it for them

against what they get in singles? Is

0:23:300:23:35

it because there's just too many

tournaments on the calendar? There's

0:23:350:23:38

just a whole variety of reasons.

It's certainly very different to

0:23:380:23:43

when you were playing.

Automatically

would play singles and doubles. Yes,

0:23:430:23:46

the first one who did not do it with

Bjorn Borg, he was the first player

0:23:460:23:50

who made it fashionable not to play

doubles and then the trend continued

0:23:500:23:57

from there unfortunately. So I blame

Bjorn Borg. It's his fault!

0:23:570:24:02

At least he gave us a few good

decent singles matches to watch.

0:24:110:24:16

Only a few. A few hundred.

A few

thousand.

He could probably give

0:24:160:24:25

some clothing to Jamie Murray now.

0:24:250:24:30

That's class, that is. I love

watching him serve. It is such a

0:24:440:24:52

beautiful motion and he's one of the

best volley is on the tour but that

0:24:520:24:57

service motion was a fine volley hit

to there. That's just about perfect

0:24:570:25:03

technique to there.

He is ranked 25

in the world, in doubles, Lopez.

0:25:030:25:11

Played semis insofar -- in the Doha.

Who lost to Murray. They got some

0:25:110:25:21

recent history, those two.

0:25:210:25:29

Solid, very solid.

Is Busta the one

to go to for breaks?

I think he is

0:25:310:25:43

one to go through at the net but

stay away from Lopez when both

0:25:430:25:47

players are a way at the net, that's

for sure. That's who you pick your

0:25:470:25:52

target against when there is a 50-50

ball.

0:25:520:25:57

Wow!

0:26:200:26:24

That's exactly what Dominic Inglot

didn't want, having lost his serve

0:26:260:26:31

in the first game but, importantly,

he has a good confidence building

0:26:310:26:35

game here just to get himself into

the match.

0:26:350:26:41

Such quick hands, Jamie.

Unbelievable.

Stays in so close to

0:26:560:27:01

the net, as well. He picks it off

that quickly.

That is a major change

0:27:010:27:05

in doubles, how close they stand,

these days.

They back themselves to

0:27:050:27:10

get back. Very few players lob.

Jamie Murray is one of the few

0:27:100:27:14

players who lobs off the return of

serve. They back themselves in

0:27:140:27:19

opposition. Obviously much easier to

volley when you are right on top of

0:27:190:27:22

the net and they would rather come

after a good first serve, see if you

0:27:220:27:26

can lob me. I will take that chance.

0:27:260:27:36

I always thought when you play

doubles at this level, the first

0:27:590:28:03

couple of games when you are

returning I would go down the line

0:28:030:28:09

on almost every return, just send a

message out, because they are going

0:28:090:28:13

to cross half the time anyway.

0:28:130:28:19

It's better. A lot of the top

doubles players who will actually

0:28:190:28:24

see them do that, certainly right at

the start, if I can go down the line

0:28:240:28:28

and hit the tramlines I'm going to

win quite a few points and if I can

0:28:280:28:32

put a little bit of doubt on the net

players over the net at the main

0:28:320:28:38

part, then I have done a good job.

Yes. The difference of first serve

0:28:380:28:44

for Inglot. You consider yourself

unlucky if you got a seat next to

0:28:440:28:50

that, wouldn't you?

LAUGHTER

0:28:500:28:54

Is that I half price tickets? It

would not be nice to have that for

0:28:540:28:58

four hours!

0:28:580:29:04

four hours! His new captain made an

impression yesterday and had a lot

0:29:040:29:07

to say. Leon Smith seem to keep what

he was saying very simple.

He spoke

0:29:070:29:14

quite a bit, that it looked very

well measured and he had two rookies

0:29:140:29:20

playing. There is a difference but

for me, when you have two

0:29:200:29:24

experienced players and you are

losing, they do different things,

0:29:240:29:28

you do things to help, but you

pretty much let the players manage

0:29:280:29:31

themselves do give them little hints

and there, but at the top 20, top 25

0:29:310:29:37

players who been around for a number

of years, I don't think they need

0:29:370:29:41

too much chat over and over again

and also it was the way he was doing

0:29:410:29:45

it. It was not in a calm fashion. I

don't know what he was saying

0:29:450:29:49

because I don't speak Spanish

unfortunately, but I thought he was

0:29:490:29:52

a little bit too aggressive at times

for me.

0:29:520:30:02

Just the opening break in the

opening game the difference between

0:30:080:30:10

the two.

0:30:100:30:14

There is that lob you talked about.

He hasn't got it zeroed down.

0:30:260:30:34

Probably they prefer somebody to

serve and volley? I think they

0:30:340:30:39

would. It is not easy on the clay,

you have got to hit a very good

0:30:390:30:45

volley.

He made the final of the

doubles in the US Open,

0:30:450:30:53

Carreno-Busta.

So he knows his way

around.

0:30:530:30:56

Super. Is he going to change his

racket? Yeah. Maybe try to help the

0:31:100:31:20

lob return.

Hmm. Uses that well.

0:31:200:31:30

The umpire's got to keep an eye on

the net players, because they're

0:31:410:31:47

virtually over it for the volley.

Amazing.

0:31:470:31:54

LAUGHTER. Wasn't sure about that

one! Oh!

0:32:060:32:14

Mrauz.

0:32:140:32:18

They did well to get away with that

point.

That was great play from

0:32:450:32:53

Inglot. Perfect tactics. Shows you

how tough it is even on the doubles

0:32:530:33:00

court to put the ball away on clay.

Jamie still hasn't got the lob

0:33:000:33:09

working yet. Hasn't got the range.

0:33:090:33:17

I want that one!

0:33:210:33:23

Backhand return is normally more

solid for Jamie Murray.

His forehand

0:33:320:33:37

he has managed to, how can I put?

Disguise the fact, he has built his

0:33:370:33:45

game around the backhand side and

the forehand he used that bumped

0:33:450:33:50

forehand and takes a short swing.

But he can't come over the ball on

0:33:500:33:53

the forehand side.

0:33:530:34:02

Too good.

0:34:500:34:55

Surprising miss there. Looked at the

court as if it was a bad bounce.

0:36:180:36:24

That second serve was right in his

hitting zone there, shouldn't have

0:36:240:36:27

missed that one.

0:36:270:36:37

What an angle.

If there was one

place I didn't think he would do go

0:36:490:37:01

for. I thought he would play safe

and he goes for the tram line. Look

0:37:010:37:06

at the court there. Boom!

Good thing

that angle existed.

0:37:060:37:13

That is a fabulous volley. It is

much sharper now than at the start.

0:37:190:37:29

Tactics are now clear. When you have

a guy serving and staying back, does

0:37:290:37:34

that make you feel, come on, we have

got to break this guy? How tough is

0:37:340:37:38

it?

For me, it can be really tough.

Particularly on clay. The problem is

0:37:380:37:45

if you don't hit a good enough

approach shot, these players are so

0:37:450:37:51

good from the baseline, on the clay

it gives them extra time to prepare.

0:37:510:37:58

They will hit dipping shots and it

is difficult. I think they would

0:37:580:38:01

prefer to have someone stay back,

where they can at least chip and

0:38:010:38:07

come in and rather than somebody who

is serve and volleying. Maybe they

0:38:070:38:12

have

0:38:120:38:17

have got a good combination with

Lopez and Carreno-Busta.

It depend

0:38:200:38:24

on the opponent. For Jamie and Dom,

they want to get forward and it

0:38:240:38:29

gives them territory to go after and

if they execute well, they will get

0:38:290:38:34

some success from that. If you had

somebody of the ground strokes

0:38:340:38:38

quality of an Andy Murray for

example, he would love to see

0:38:380:38:42

somebody serve and volleying who is

not good at the net. Because I'm

0:38:420:38:46

going to dip and toy with you and

keep doing it.

New balls for Lopez.

0:38:460:38:52

4-3.

0:38:520:38:54

That being the prime example. If you

had two singles players with that

0:39:040:39:10

second ball, they would almost never

be missing that.

0:39:100:39:15

Only lost two points on serve since

that tough hold from Carreno-Busta,

0:39:530:39:57

the second game of the set. The

regular coaches courtside.

0:39:570:40:06

At the moment, the British pair are

not hurting the Spanish team at all

0:40:470:40:53

on the return of serve. There's

nothing coming at them at all. It is

0:40:530:40:58

almost like they're in two minds.

Jamie's lobbying a lot. Doesn't look

0:40:580:41:03

like he has the confidence to come

over the ball. Dom Inglot has hit a

0:41:030:41:09

couple of good ones, but not

consistent enough.

0:41:090:41:14

Dom Inglot would like to get a

higher percentage of first serves in

0:41:250:41:29

as well. The vast majority have been

missing in the net. So he is not

0:41:290:41:35

reaching up to the ball and pulling

down quickly.

The Spanish pair have

0:41:350:41:40

only hit four second serves between

them.

There he tried to slow it up

0:41:400:41:46

to get the first serve in. Then you

take the risk of a good return of

0:41:460:41:51

serve coming at you.

0:41:510:41:59

Standing back for the second serve

too.

0:42:190:42:21

Oh!

The net caughts could go

anywhere. Could have bounced up into

0:42:270:42:36

a nice position to smack it away.

But that one, no, the old wrong-foot

0:42:360:42:44

net caught.

0:42:440:42:45

It is a big serve. He is six foot

five. When it does go in. There is

0:42:530:43:02

not too much difference between the

first and second serve in terms of

0:43:020:43:06

pace.

0:43:060:43:12

Will he play tomorrow?

0:43:320:43:40

Carreno-Busta is the one they have

come closest to breaking.

I think

0:43:480:43:54

John's right. The British team have

started OK. It is just the rhythm on

0:43:540:43:59

return of serve. It would be good to

get, obviously this is a critical

0:43:590:44:04

game coming up, but in the context

of the match, it would be good to

0:44:040:44:08

get a couple of games where they get

into every single point and make

0:44:080:44:12

them play a few more balls. It is

not like the Spanish team are

0:44:120:44:18

serving aces. On clay you tend to

get a chance to get your racket on

0:44:180:44:24

the ball.

Is the trick not to block

the return to the server on the

0:44:240:44:29

baseline, but hit a hard return and

keep it low to make it awkward.

0:44:290:44:34

Tactically what do they do?

That is

what Jamie Murray's tactic on his

0:44:340:44:41

front fear hand, yes, he is thinking

about the direction of it. But the

0:44:410:44:45

damage of that shot, because it is

so low over the net. Even if the net

0:44:450:44:49

player tries to do something, he

whats no time to -- he has no time

0:44:490:44:53

to react.

Serving for the set can

change things too.

Absolutely.

A

0:44:530:45:02

little caption adds a bit pressure.

0:45:020:45:07

Very solid there.

When Jamie Murray

was talking I can do a few things

0:45:330:45:43

they won't like, that is an example,

a block return, followed by coming

0:45:430:45:48

into the net. Not many players do

that.

0:45:480:45:51

Good hands. Very good hands there

from Inglot. Inglot on the return of

0:46:210:46:29

serve can be streaky and miss four

or five in a row and then hit three

0:46:290:46:34

Clyne winners. -- clean winners. Now

is the time you hope. Jamie has set

0:46:340:46:40

him up well. He needs a return of

serve here.

0:46:400:46:44

Oh, what a volley. What a volley.

0:47:300:47:37

Set point, Spain.

If Carreno-Busta

had had to hit that shot he wouldn't

0:47:400:47:47

have made it. But Lopez opened up

that racket face enough.

0:47:470:47:58

He practices for hours at the net,

with players just nailing balls as

0:48:080:48:13

hard as they can at Jamie Murray for

20 minutes or so - for this. A

0:48:130:48:22

phenomenally quick reactions.

He

would see that as routine. That

0:48:220:48:27

wasn't even a routine reaction.

0:48:270:48:35

Second set point.

0:48:430:48:51

Just the one break in the opening

game of the set, it is enough for

0:48:570:49:00

Spain to take it after 35 minutes.

STUDIO: We will be right back with

0:49:000:49:07

this match. But what is happening

elsewhere in the world group in

0:49:070:49:12

2018?

0:49:120:49:14

France are facing the Netherlands.

Gasquet defeated Haas yesterday.

0:49:160:49:28

They're 1-1 at moment. In Japan,

Italy are 2-1 up up. The winner of

0:49:290:49:41

Great Britain and Spain will play

the winner of Australia and Germany

0:49:410:49:51

and it is advantage Germany.

Kazakhstan have defeated

0:49:510:50:01

Switzerland, who are without Roger

Federer.

0:50:010:50:08

Federer. Marin Cilic is on court

today. But Korea have lost the

0:50:080:50:14

opening set 6-2. The United States

against Serbia, United States are

0:50:140:50:20

2-0 up. The doubles match today. No

Bryan brothers any more.

0:50:200:50:36

Bryan brothers any more. Serbia's

top player is playing. Belgium are

0:50:360:50:41

in control against Hungary.

0:50:410:50:47

in control against Hungary. We will

keep you up-to-date. Now back to

0:50:480:50:51

Marbella.

0:50:510:50:55

COMMENTATOR: Pretty tight first set.

Nothing to get too alarmed about.

0:50:550:51:00

No, just a shaky first service game.

After that, the British team always

0:51:000:51:05

looked comfort yak on their serve.

Had a couple of mini-chances against

0:51:050:51:11

the... Carreno-Busta serve. They're

in that set, if they can combine

0:51:110:51:17

better on the return of serve. It is

a bit up and down. They are still

0:51:170:51:23

capable of pulling back this match.

0:51:230:51:30

Staying at the same end for serve,

Britain, it helps with the sun

0:51:300:51:35

having a lefty and a righty. For

both pairs.

0:51:350:51:46

Not sure that any player on the

court at the moment is returning

0:53:230:53:26

well. The standard of returning has

not been great. The court is pretty

0:53:260:53:30

slow as well.

0:53:300:53:35

I was expecting a lot more balls in

court than we have seen off all four

0:53:380:53:43

serves. I'm sure that will improve

though.

0:53:430:53:52

There was a bit of advice on

Inglot's return of serve - stay

0:53:570:54:02

lower. You're coming upright too

soon.

Horrible feeling if you're not

0:54:020:54:09

returning as well as your partner,

you feel like you're letting them

0:54:090:54:13

down. Specially when you're playing

left court. Jamie's always played

0:54:130:54:19

right court, being a lefty.

Yeah.

0:54:190:54:28

It is a small thing, but it can make

a big difference in these matches,

0:54:360:54:43

the scoreboard pressure - if the

British team can hold their serve,

0:54:430:54:49

keep their noses in front, the

Spanish team have more settle into

0:54:490:54:55

the match in the first set, because

they had the breathing space from

0:54:550:54:58

the start.

0:54:580:55:01

They both stands back for Inglot's

return and just lob the return high.

0:55:080:55:13

He has to start making a few more

than he is at the moment.

0:55:130:55:23

That is brilliant.

It is not a

forehand volley you would teach, but

0:55:290:55:35

it is a bit like John McEnroe's

forehand volley. I wouldn't say it

0:55:350:55:40

wassed a good as. But -- it was as

good as. But he hits it really well.

0:55:400:55:55

An excellent second serve.

0:56:330:56:40

Only lost one point behind the

second serve.

0:56:430:56:53

That may give Inglot some

confidence, three very good

0:57:090:57:12

backhands there and he stayed low on

all of them.

0:57:120:57:18

When he sets himself on those ground

strokes, he does have a lot of power

0:57:210:57:27

and he can trouble anybody. It is

that magic word - consistency.

0:57:270:57:38

He normally is so good at that lob

return.

He hasn't really made one

0:57:490:57:54

yet.

Interesting they are both back

for Jamie's return, but Jamie goes

0:57:540:58:03

in for Inglot's return. Something's

behind that.

0:58:030:58:07

That wasn't a bad game for the

British team. But Inglot looked like

0:58:260:58:31

he got a bit more rhythm back on the

return.

Good to love Davis Cup

0:58:310:58:39

crowds - the atmosphere. Individual

tournaments, they're not all going

0:58:390:58:43

to turn up all the time.

I don't

know why they only turned up on

0:58:430:58:47

Saturday. The Spanish team needed

them yet. Yesterday was like being

0:58:470:58:53

at home in Britain.

0:58:530:58:55

Is the mark being looked at? It is

out.

I'm not sure that is the right

0:59:441:00:00

mark, is it?

1:00:001:00:05

A double fault it is.

1:00:201:00:28

Pressure again on the Inglot serve.

1:00:361:00:40

It is the great thing about

clay-court tennis. More often than

1:01:051:01:09

not, no matter how big your service,

you're probably not going to be able

1:01:091:01:13

to serve your way out of trouble.

You have to step up at every point

1:01:131:01:18

and be prepared for a battle.

He

should take a bit of his first serve

1:01:181:01:23

and put some more spin on it then?

I

think that is one way he could go.

1:01:231:01:29

He has got a good kick-serve.

Dropping some pace would be

1:01:291:01:36

effective on this court.

It just

puts pressure on your second serve

1:01:361:01:39

if you are missing a lot of firsts.

Twitches shoulders, he served a

1:01:391:01:44

double fault at the start of the

match.

1:01:441:01:53

It is all Spain so far in the

doubles rubber.

1:02:281:02:35

doubles rubber. And early break

again. Against the Inglot serve.

1:02:351:02:45

Jamie Murray got tangled up on that

volley and whether he lost sight of

1:02:451:02:49

the returns slightly. With Dominic

Inglot, whether it is nervous or

1:02:491:02:54

tension or the environment, he has

not quite settled into a comfortable

1:02:541:02:59

rhythm to play his best tennis yet.

The trouble is, when that happens

1:02:591:03:04

and your partner is often a little

bit, the tendency is you try little

1:03:041:03:08

bit too much yourself and with

Jamie, the pressure is on him. He

1:03:081:03:12

has to keep making more the returns

and all of a sudden his game drops a

1:03:121:03:17

little bit as well. It is that

little balance and they haven't got

1:03:171:03:23

it right yet. They have got to have

faith they can turn it around. I

1:03:231:03:26

still think they can break the

Spaniard's serve. At the moment, it

1:03:261:03:31

is taking care of business and

holding their own serve which

1:03:311:03:35

Dominic at the moment has not felt

comfortable.

He has spent a lot of

1:03:351:03:40

time in his Davis Cup career being

on the bench for three days,

1:03:401:03:44

probably wondering what it is like

to be out there playing in the

1:03:441:03:47

cauldron. A great team member.

He

has played some good matches as

1:03:471:03:53

well.

1:03:531:03:58

well. He was the best player on the

court against Serbia.

1:03:591:04:02

It is so important he keeps his eye

on the exact Mark!

They are

1:04:291:04:36

replaying the point, I presume.

They

all agreed it was out.

I think the

1:04:361:04:42

Spanish have given it, they said it

was in. That should never be a

1:04:421:04:47

replay though, the point was over.

They have given the point. Or have

1:04:471:04:53

they? There is some confusion here.

1:04:531:05:05

I wouldn't mind seeing the replay of

that.

1:05:111:05:17

This is also where Jamie Murray,

with his experience, he has got to

1:05:461:05:51

be the captain on court the moment.

They have got Leon Smith the captain

1:05:511:05:55

when they have the changeovers, but

you need to have someone who takes

1:05:551:05:59

charge in the pairing. At the moment

Dominic Inglot is not there. The

1:05:591:06:04

points go quick and some panic sets

in. You have got to calm it down.

1:06:041:06:15

He is having a good chat with him

now.

1:06:151:06:23

There are still a lot of tennis to

be played here. They will

1:06:271:06:31

manufacture some opportunities but

they do not want to be too far out

1:06:311:06:35

of sight when that happens.

1:06:351:06:41

Beaten for pace if that is in. 3-1

it is.

1:07:181:07:26

A terrific start for Spain. So fired

up at the start of this. The crowd

1:07:311:07:36

are fired up as well. It is like

they were determined to win this

1:07:361:07:41

match as well, the crowd.

And the

evidence at the moment with the way

1:07:411:07:45

they are playing, I would say

Carreno Busta is going to be playing

1:07:451:07:49

singles tomorrow.

1:07:491:07:51

And he may not be.

1:07:561:07:58

A super point. Quick wheels from Dom

in block to get back for that one.

1:08:091:08:17

That was a good log. -- Dom Inglot.

1:08:171:08:22

Tomorrow is going to be fascinating.

No one has a clue what will happen.

1:08:281:08:33

No one has a clue who will play.

What number they might play!

1:08:331:08:45

Jamie is saying that is not the

right mark.

Carlos Ramos is saying

1:08:521:08:57

the board is good.

1:08:571:09:03

the board is good.

Lopez has now got

rid of the mark. He is saying, sorry

1:09:051:09:10

I got that one wrong. Yes, you did.

A good laugh though.

It was a very

1:09:101:09:21

good bluff. -- bluff. They want the

point.

1:09:211:09:26

UMPIRE:

Replay the point.

1:09:321:09:36

He is not quite sure, Ramos here. He

has looked a bit doubtful umpiring

1:09:421:09:47

this.

1:09:471:09:52

this. What we would all love to see

is a replay and sort it out.

1:09:521:09:56

Everyone is relying on their memory

of what happened in that point. What

1:09:561:10:01

did happen?

I don't know!

It was

half an hour ago.

1:10:011:10:06

They are going back for another chat

here.

I think you might have

1:10:121:10:16

convinced him!

1:10:161:10:24

What has the other fellow got to do

with it? No idea.

He must be asking

1:10:261:10:34

when he called the ball.

He the

lines person, OK. I hope he has got

1:10:341:10:41

a good memory.

1:10:411:10:50

He didn't get there very quickly for

that one, Jamie Murray.

They are

1:11:381:11:44

returning much better.

The first set

he did not make many returns of

1:11:441:11:52

serve stop you were expecting them

to get hold of the service and now

1:11:521:11:55

it looks like they are finding the

rhythm. This is a danger time right

1:11:551:12:00

now.

So good.

1:12:001:12:09

More break points.

This was

definitely a point, the class of

1:12:131:12:18

someone who is in the top ten in the

world. A lot of pace on that one.

A

1:12:181:12:27

semifinalist in New York last year.

1:12:271:12:29

Kevin Anderson, the surprise

package.

1:12:431:12:47

This is another virtual set point

here.

1:12:541:12:56

Another one close.

Luckett was

called out.

1:13:071:13:15

A great body serve there.

That was

one heck of a serve, considering the

1:13:191:13:26

importance of that point. That felt

like it was about ten miles an hour

1:13:261:13:30

faster than most of his second

service. He really went for that.

1:13:301:13:37

That is the pressure the Spanish

pair are now putting on these

1:13:371:13:39

returns of serve.

1:13:391:13:45

I was about to say a few minutes ago

the British team looked like they

1:14:191:14:24

need a moment, a bit of inspiration,

something to fire them up and get

1:14:241:14:29

some energy. I wonder if they get

out of this game, whether that will

1:14:291:14:33

spark something.

1:14:331:14:41

It is amazing how many of those

bodies Murray makes. Look how long

1:14:451:14:49

the swing is -- how many of those

volleys he makes.

1:14:491:15:01

Great. Can that inspire. Quite a

roar from Murray.

1:15:071:15:19

roar from Murray. They had known a

mentor Matt the start of the match

1:15:191:15:21

when they got broken in the first

game. -- they had no momentum from

1:15:211:15:26

the start of the match.

I'm thinking

about that serve at 30-40. You heard

1:15:261:15:36

a shout from Murray but he knows one

break on clay, that is nothing.

Two

1:15:361:15:40

breaks, you are done.

They are still

talking about the returns.

It is a

1:15:401:15:49

very fine balance because Dom Inglot

knows more than anyone else, that he

1:15:491:15:54

is not making enough returns. He can

feel it himself, trying so hard to

1:15:541:15:59

do something about it. As a captain

and partner, if you are constantly

1:15:591:16:03

meant to do a bit of this, and a bit

of that, it is like, OK guys, I am

1:16:031:16:08

trying to

1:16:081:16:13

trying to figure it out.

It is a

fine balance will stop you want to

1:16:161:16:20

make a return, don't worry about

them, just make one somehow.

1:16:201:16:22

Remember your technique, you do not

want to think too much about it.

1:16:221:16:32

Three men haven't been broken yet.

1:16:401:16:48

Should have made that. That was a

good chance there.

1:16:551:17:07

A couple of lobs have drifted that

way. I wonder if there is a bit of

1:17:391:17:43

wind.

That is impressive.

1:17:431:17:54

There were Lopez, it is very good

serve there but the thing with

1:18:121:18:16

Carreno Busta, very rarely crosses.

You have actually got a fair bit of

1:18:161:18:26

the court to a mat on these returns.

The other way round when Carreno

1:18:261:18:30

Busta is serving, Lopez does cross a

lot more. The return of serve you

1:18:301:18:35

have to think about a bit more. I'm

surprised the British pair are not

1:18:351:18:39

returning more service into court

against Lopez.

1:18:391:18:48

What a shock to go for! He just

served a double fault. It's sort of

1:19:301:19:38

hung for a while, didn't it? I

didn't realise he had that much

1:19:381:19:43

feel. Beautiful shot.

1:19:431:19:52

They are after Inglot again. Look at

the eyes.

The difference is the

1:20:021:20:08

return. They are making the British

pair play almost every ball.

1:20:081:20:18

Another insurance point here.

1:20:501:20:54

So good! That was a tremendous

point.

1:21:201:21:32

point. They are hanging in literally

right here. The Spanish team focused

1:21:321:21:37

on the wrong man at the net there.

1:21:371:21:40

Again, two doubles in a game for

Inglot.

1:21:591:22:06

Inglot. His first serve percentage

is letting him down.

1:22:061:22:11

That is a let off from a second

serve out. Carreno Busta has not

1:22:421:22:49

missed a point for a long time. At

the moment it feels like the Spanish

1:22:491:22:53

are way on top, they have tonnes of

breathing room but how quickly have

1:22:531:22:59

we seen matches change? Yesterday

was a prime example.

Oh, boy.

That

1:22:591:23:12

was a poor volley there, that was in

the middle of the net. Took a big

1:23:121:23:17

swing on that one. Just dragged that

ball down.

1:23:171:23:28

Although could do was stand and

watch. Didn't miss by that much.

1:23:461:23:59

Has he made that?

Lopez is probably

saying I have won six points in a

1:24:031:24:11

row, any chance you can win one? My

shoulders are getting a bit sore.

He

1:24:111:24:17

took the pace of Inglot there. He

has tried to mix it up.

1:24:171:24:23

That is gutsy.

It is a big second

serve. I guess that is the reason

1:24:441:24:55

why he hits some doubles, he goes

for it.

He does not hold back.

1:24:551:25:06

That was well watched from Inglot. I

was not clear until the last minute

1:25:181:25:24

whether Jamie Murray would take that

one. It was the right decision.

1:25:241:25:28

Well held.

That is a huge lift for

the British pair there. They should

1:25:341:25:45

really be down two sets to love

already by now.

1:25:451:25:58

I wonder whether Leon Smith will

continue to talk about the return or

1:26:001:26:04

focus on other things and take the

pressure away. They are having a

1:26:041:26:08

party, whatever happens. They are in

Marbella, why not?

1:26:081:26:18

Marbella, why not?

The sun is

shining.

1:26:181:26:23

shining. It is an interesting one

for Leon, tactically with this

1:26:241:26:28

match. Because when you are down and

it has relatively speaking been

1:26:281:26:34

one-way traffic, there is a tendency

to start to think of different

1:26:341:26:38

things to do to change things up.

But actually, it is not like their

1:26:381:26:44

plan A, they have been doing really

well and it has worked. It is almost

1:26:441:26:48

like they need to go back to basics

and say, no, if we execute how we

1:26:481:26:54

think we can on Plan A, then we do

think it will cause a bit of

1:26:541:26:59

trouble. It is a balance between not

panicking and feeling like you have

1:26:591:27:03

to do something different, and

finding a way to get your game on

1:27:031:27:06

court.

1:27:061:27:11

court.

Said Carreno Busta, he is the

one who offered up a break point.

1:27:111:27:21

I think Jamie wanted that one! He

did not push in out of the way but

1:27:311:27:36

it was as good as!

He was on his

way.

It was a good return at the

1:27:361:27:42

start.

1:27:421:27:49

Oh, the top of the net!

1:28:301:28:34

Inglot has not tried to lob once.

1:29:141:29:22

So good by comparison. That just

makes it even worse for Inglot, to

1:29:301:29:35

see a return like that! Should Jamie

stand back and just get the lob up

1:29:351:29:42

high? Do something different?

1:29:421:29:45

The pattern continues.

1:30:011:30:04

Puente,

Dom Inglot tried to hit the

return four feet inside the baseline

1:30:121:30:15

on the the rise. The timing has to

be good. When you're playing well,

1:30:151:30:20

great, but it's not. Maybe stand

back two or three feet on the return

1:30:201:30:24

and give himself a split second more

time. The other tactics at the

1:30:241:30:30

moment is just not working.

1:30:301:30:32

Well played and nothing wrong with

that defensive lob.

Very good.

An

1:31:061:31:14

example of the pace he has on that

forehand. He got his whole frame

1:31:141:31:19

behind that one as well.

1:31:191:31:30

Lopez has returned a lot better than

his partner. He is may making the

1:31:401:31:47

most of the returns on their side.

1:31:471:31:56

Did well, that was awkward.

Love

hold.

1:33:161:33:25

hold. Here we are again.

Well...

Don't try and jump into the return.

1:33:251:33:37

I think that is what he was saying.

Yeah. That is the sort of shots he

1:33:371:33:47

is talking about, when you're

playing well and you're seeing the

1:33:471:33:51

ball like a football. But he is not.

So hang back a bit, give yourself a

1:33:511:33:56

bit more time. As Jamie said this is

looking easy on paper, but they

1:33:561:34:02

should have had two other breaks and

it should be all over. A couple of

1:34:021:34:09

points, an inspirational point here

and the Spanish team could get tight

1:34:091:34:12

and things could change quickly.

Doesn't look good at the moment, but

1:34:121:34:17

anything can happen.

1:34:171:34:26

anything can happen.

V Lopez will be

the one to serve it out. He has only

1:34:261:34:30

lost five points on serve so far.

One of those a double fault.

Yeah.

1:34:301:34:39

Serving for a two-set lead.

1:34:421:34:45

Terrific start.

1:34:551:34:59

Terrific serving isn't it.

It is

such a good serve. It is so

1:35:371:35:42

difficult to read.

He really throws

the ball over his head and can ping

1:35:421:35:48

it in any direction.

Champion at

Queen's last year.

1:35:481:35:59

Now then... Didn't have much of a

chance on the last serve, Dom

1:36:141:36:24

Inglot. Maybe this one he will get a

chance to take a swing at it.

1:36:241:36:32

He tried standing further back.

At

least he made them play.

1:36:411:36:46

Unfortunately the direction wasn't

very good.

Two set points.

1:36:461:37:00

Good return again from Jamie Murray.

He has returned very well in this

1:37:091:37:12

match.

Very well.

1:37:121:37:16

Murray and Inglot have got to do a

Norrie - they have got to win from

1:37:461:37:51

two sets down.

STUDIO: At least we know it is

1:37:511:37:54

possible. But Spain are looking

solid. Very much in the driving

1:37:541:38:00

seat, two lets to love up. That

would put them 2-1 up in the tie.

1:38:001:38:07

This what is we have been talking

about all day, who would play

1:38:071:38:10

tomorrow. Because Kyle Edmund, will

he deem himself fit? The Davis Cup

1:38:101:38:17

has changed the rules and five

players are named in each team so,

1:38:171:38:22

you can make changes and you feel

Spain will make changes. You're sure

1:38:221:38:33

Carreno-Busta will come into one of

the singles matches. So much to talk

1:38:331:38:39

about, whatever is play -- whoever

is playing we will have that match

1:38:391:38:44

for you tomorrow morning at 10

o'clock. Our live coverage will be

1:38:441:38:49

10 o'clock on BBC Two. Heading back

to this match and Chris, how do Leon

1:38:491:38:59

and Jamie deal when you have player

who isn't playing at his best, how

1:38:591:39:05

during the match can you change it?

Doo you keep it simple? It is just

1:39:051:39:12

very hard for Leon and Jamie to get

him to lift his game. Which he has

1:39:121:39:16

got to do. Because the Spaniards

will be targeting him?

Exactly, at

1:39:161:39:24

the moment Jamie has returned very

well. Inglot's percentage is so

1:39:241:39:28

poor. You can see what Leon was

saying, stand back, give yourself

1:39:281:39:34

more of a chance to have a swing at

it. He at least got two returns

1:39:341:39:38

back. Unfortunately he hit them

straight to Carreno-Busta. I think

1:39:381:39:42

that is the way to do it. Just try

and get a bit of rhythm back and

1:39:421:39:47

then be more aggressive. You can't

win if you can't return the ball

1:39:471:39:52

back into court. But they have got

to take care of their own business

1:39:521:39:56

and hold their serve. I still

believe that they're going to get a

1:39:561:40:01

chance to break at some stage. I

still think they can do this. It is

1:40:011:40:05

a long way back though that is for

sure.

Holding serve, we have seen

1:40:051:40:10

Dom has given away so many cheap

points, you talk about that, he

1:40:101:40:14

wants to hit the big serves, do you

think maybe he should take a bit of

1:40:141:40:19

pace off and get a higher percentage

in? He has got to at least get in

1:40:191:40:25

the point.

I would like him to do

that. If Dom takes a bit off his

1:40:251:40:29

serve, it is still huge. But he

doesn't seem to have that in his

1:40:291:40:33

make up. He keeps on going for the

big second serve and the confidence

1:40:331:40:37

is just not there. I would like to

see him get a higher percentage of

1:40:371:40:45

first serves in, slow it down by

10mph and it will still be a

1:40:451:40:51

difficult serve to play against.

COMMENTATOR: Cameron Norrie created

1:40:511:40:58

some her Ree wick -- heroics

yesterday. It will be interesting to

1:40:581:41:06

see if Dom Inglot can turn it

around. He looks like he has gone

1:41:061:41:09

into a shell. When he sits down, his

eyes are distant, I'm not returning

1:41:091:41:15

well, Jamie is. He can't snap out of

it.

The other thing worth

1:41:151:41:22

mentioning, the tactical side of

things is one element. Let's not

1:41:221:41:27

forget, the Davis Cup competition is

a team competition, but in singles

1:41:271:41:32

you're out by yourself. Doubles is a

team game. In terms of what is going

1:41:321:41:36

on in between the points and the

energy he is getting from Jamie and

1:41:361:41:41

Leon, it is important that he is

getting nothing but positive energy

1:41:411:41:45

and they take this one point at a

time. If he feels there any any type

1:41:451:41:50

of negotiation televisionty or

tension or -- negativity or the heat

1:41:501:41:55

on the back of his head because the

eyes are burning into him, it won't

1:41:551:41:59

help.

It is loom like if you -- like

if you miss a ball, don't worry,

1:41:591:42:06

keep believing. If you get too much

other, say too much other than that

1:42:061:42:11

it will keep entering his head how

badly he has been playing.

1:42:111:42:20

At the end of the day, there is only

two breaks of serve in the match.

1:42:201:42:33

This is a vote of confidence in

itself that he is serving first in

1:42:361:42:40

the set. I don't know whether the

sun's an issue, with the lefty and

1:42:401:42:45

the righty. They had the option for

Jamie to serve first there.

1:42:451:42:55

By far his easiest service game.

Good start.

He did slow his first

1:43:261:43:32

serve speed down in that game as

well.

I know I have laboured the

1:43:321:43:37

point, but how about the idea of

just hitting a defensive high lob

1:43:371:43:42

for Inglot to at least make them pl

smashes. We saw one defensive lobby

1:43:421:43:52

and they struggled to put it away.

It is difficult to have a tactic

1:43:521:43:56

that way, to think of lobbing. I

think he has got to think more of

1:43:561:44:00

staying back like in that last game

and getting some returns back and

1:44:001:44:04

making sure the direction is better.

I think that is more of the play.

1:44:041:44:10

I do think that Carreno-Busta, he is

the man to go at on any 50/50 shot.

1:44:271:44:33

Lopez is the best player on the

court today, followed closely by

1:44:331:44:39

Jamie Murray.

1:44:391:44:42

Yes, it's in.

Why is Lopez checking

it out?

That was a let!

Why was

1:44:541:45:07

Carlos Ramos getting out of the

chair then?

1:45:071:45:11

That is a good serve.

1:45:181:45:27

That will help Inglot. He has made

one!

Carreno-Busta's managing his

1:46:081:46:15

serve in a way kind of what we have

been talk about. Inglot, he won't

1:46:151:46:21

start taking pace off. But

Carreno-Busta is struggling and he

1:46:211:46:26

is hitting three quarters kickers

into the backhand almost every time.

1:46:261:46:37

He nailed that!

From a ball that had

zero pace and was dropping

1:46:401:46:50

vertically as well. That was all in

the timing that one.

1:46:501:47:00

They're feeding off it

1:47:151:47:24

confidence-wise, Carreno-Busta and

Lopez. He has got to keep holding

1:47:241:47:30

serve. They have been broken early

in each set. They have got to keep

1:47:301:47:36

holding and nudge the scoreboard.

They have only got to make a couple

1:47:361:47:40

of returns.

1:47:401:47:42

I'm going to say it now in case it

does happen, the fact there was a

1:49:371:49:43

2-0 come back yesterday, guarantee

you in terms of belief that will

1:49:431:49:48

make that absolutely will have an

impact on what the British players

1:49:481:49:51

are thinking. Not saying it is going

to happen. But they know if Cam

1:49:511:49:57

Norrie can do it against Bautista

Agut. Why can't they?

1:49:571:50:08

It is so important this game. Broken

in the third game of the second set.

1:50:181:50:23

They cannot afford to go a break

down here.

1:50:231:50:33

Well done. You have been the captain

John, what would you be saying now?

1:51:041:51:17

I mean, they have got to just, you

know, I think what we have been

1:51:171:51:22

saying about what with Dom Inglot

and Leon's made his point and

1:51:221:51:26

mentioned things, I agree with what

Jamie said, you can't keep harping

1:51:261:51:30

on it all the time. Because it will

become a psychological thing. It is

1:51:301:51:38

this belief they have got to have.

As you said, they lost the first two

1:51:381:51:43

sets with one break on each. They

didn't play well. It is not that far

1:51:431:51:48

away. And Carreno-Busta in my

opinion has not returned well. Lopez

1:51:481:51:57

has played very well. But they're

not far off. But they're not doing

1:51:571:52:02

the simple things well. They're just

not getting the ball back in play.

1:52:021:52:07

Leon is mentioning something here

again.

1:52:071:52:18

Lopez, who has been so good on

serve, up next.

1:52:191:52:28

serve, up next. Smiles all around

the Spaniards. In their sunshine.

1:52:291:52:41

Second ace for Lopez, fourth for the

team.

1:53:001:53:03

I don't know the numbers, but it

feels like the British team almost

1:53:091:53:16

haven't once been 0-15 up on a

Spanish service game just to get

1:53:161:53:24

their noses in front.

1:53:241:53:25

A very good volley there.

The

problem is before you know it,

1:53:311:53:38

you're then serving again and the

pressure's back on.

1:53:381:53:45

Love game. Now of course the

pressure is straight back to Inglot.

1:54:071:54:18

He has been the only man broken -

and twice.

1:54:181:54:26

He is so good at that shot. He lets

the ball come on to him a fraction

1:55:031:55:09

more than most players would. Gives

him the angle.

He targeted Inglot

1:55:091:55:16

initially in the point.

1:55:161:55:24

The best return he has hit for a

while.

The extra height, having

1:55:431:55:52

broken Inglot twice. They're

seriously after him again.

1:55:521:56:05

This is where Jamie's got to keep

believing and he has got to keep

1:56:171:56:24

giving his partner confidence here.

1:56:241:56:28

It looked like he really went for

that return. I don't know if that

1:56:581:57:03

was the rigt decision. Get it to

feet - ask the question.

I don't

1:57:031:57:08

think he has returned that well

today. Lopez has returned way

1:57:081:57:13

better.

1:57:131:57:20

The third time he has served two

double faults in a game. Another

1:57:301:57:37

break point. A bit of a look. They

exchanged gifts before the tie.

1:57:371:57:46

There has been a few in this rubber!

1:57:461:57:56

And then that!

1:57:571:58:02

Five aces and seven double faults -

Great Britain, all from Dom Inglot.

1:58:101:58:18

This is very makeable. Just pulls

that down to early. Snatches at that

1:59:111:59:17

volley.

1:59:171:59:26

Well done! Few!

It is nerve-racking,

every service game he has at the

2:00:192:00:32

moment. You just don't feel like he

will close it easily.

2:00:322:00:40

will close it easily.

A horrible

feeling as a player when you are not

2:00:402:00:42

quite there and you are trying so

hard to make it happen.

It is the

2:00:422:00:48

worst feeling ever. You feel like

you're letting your partner down and

2:00:482:00:51

your country down that you have got

to get that out of your mind as

2:00:512:00:55

quickly as you can. Your partner has

got to help you and you have got to

2:00:552:01:01

have belief in yourself.

And somehow

get into a position where it is

2:01:012:01:05

irrelevant what has happened in the

last two hours. He cannot do

2:01:052:01:09

anything about it. What you want to

do is somehow learn from it which

2:01:092:01:14

gives you a better chance of making

the next ball or playing your best

2:01:142:01:18

tennis in the next five minutes. If

I was Leon I would be reminding them

2:01:182:01:26

at every changeover of what happened

yesterday.

And it is the first time

2:01:262:01:30

in a match where they have held

serve for the first time three times

2:01:302:01:35

a row.

And talk to them about how

good they are. Just keep believing.

2:01:352:01:45

They are a world-class team. It is

going to happen. You are going to

2:01:452:01:50

break.

2:01:502:01:53

Great move.

Good deep return as

well.

2:02:242:02:31

Now then.

2:02:482:02:56

It is the first time they have had

15-30 since the second game of the

2:03:032:03:08

second set.

2:03:082:03:14

I knew Jamie Murray was going to

come in off that return. I'm a

2:04:012:04:05

little surprised he went down the

line with the return. Lopez was

2:04:052:04:11

sharp to that one.

2:04:112:04:14

They made some headway in that game.

Acorns and all that.

Exactly. They

2:04:252:04:34

have got a few more balls back in

play.

2:04:342:04:41

play. At least hang in there and

baby they will get to the tie-break.

2:04:412:04:46

At least you have got a shot that

way.

2:04:462:04:55

That was a bit fortunate where it

ended up. The reflex was good. It

2:05:282:05:33

was a tough return of serve there.

2:05:332:05:42

That serve sort of sat there and Dom

Inglot moved a fraction too soon.

2:06:022:06:11

So good. He played the wrong shop

there, Lopez.

That was such a clever

2:06:462:06:57

half-volley from Jamie Murray. Not

many people would have had the

2:06:572:07:01

vision to play this one short.

2:07:012:07:09

Well done, good point. Good pick-ups

there from both players.

2:07:362:07:46

there from both players.

So solid,

Murray. Wanting to control the play.

2:07:472:07:50

Become that captain that you talked

about with the team.

2:07:502:08:00

about with the team.

He is doing a

lot of nodding. He has got a lot of

2:08:002:08:04

instructions coming at him.

2:08:042:08:07

Nudging that scoreboard, Great

Britain.

2:08:162:08:22

Britain. From their point of view,

much better in this third set.

They

2:08:242:08:28

are in the set. The other two sets

they were down so only at the break.

2:08:282:08:34

It kept slipping away. You feel like

they are in this much more. Starting

2:08:342:08:39

to make a few more returns. Holding

their serves more comfortably as

2:08:392:08:44

well.

2:08:442:08:52

It is the occasional word to Jamie.

Not much. You keep going, I will

2:08:582:09:04

work on Dom.

2:09:042:09:10

work on Dom. They had a sniff in the

last Spanish service game. 15-30.

2:09:102:09:21

Such a mental battle these matches.

It seems like they are miles behind

2:09:212:09:26

now. This has not been a massively

physical match, even for a doubles

2:09:262:09:31

match on the clay. Sometimes you can

have lots of long exchanges. There

2:09:312:09:39

haven't been so far. If you can

somehow find a way to get this set,

2:09:392:09:42

it becomes a completely different

match again.

Just under two hours.

2:09:422:09:48

Lopez serving. 3-4, third set.

2:09:482:09:53

He has got to keep positive, Jamie

Murray, for Inglot here.

2:11:282:11:39

Made it. Not the cleanest kit but he

will take anything.

Anything!

2:11:442:11:58

The points are getting bigger on the

Spaniard's firm. They have not had a

2:12:002:12:05

lot of pressure.

2:12:052:12:06

Such a good serve.

He has been so

clinical with the wide one.

The ball

2:12:122:12:21

toss I thought he was going to swing

it down the middle.

It is an amazing

2:12:212:12:26

ball toss. It has been a nightmare

to read his serve.

You cannot, that

2:12:262:12:31

is the problem.

2:12:312:12:39

Starting to come good, Inglot.

When

he gets hold of the ball, he really

2:12:582:13:04

gets hold of it. He just clocked it.

The first return has been key. It

2:13:042:13:13

stayed low there, good extension.

2:13:132:13:15

Murray is so consistent.

A volley,

or got it back into court. So much

2:13:462:13:52

power. On play the ball just sits

there in says, hit me.

2:13:522:14:00

-- on the clay, the ball just sits

there and says, hit me. That was a

2:14:102:14:16

good volley. Even though they lost

this game, this power should be

2:14:162:14:20

thinking, we are getting close. I

know time is running out but you

2:14:202:14:25

take small little comforts when you

play a match like this. Some good

2:14:252:14:32

returns from Inglot.

You would

expect the Spanish focus to be at

2:14:322:14:41

its absolute peak in this game now,

given what has happened in the match

2:14:412:14:44

so far.

2:14:442:14:47

Is anybody else holding their breath

every time Inglot hits a first

2:15:032:15:08

serve?

2:15:082:15:16

Great serve.

2:16:062:16:16

Seven of those.

2:16:372:16:40

Good hands.

2:16:582:17:06

Getting closer and closer.

From an

opponent's point of view, the

2:17:092:17:17

difficult thing about playing an

inconsistent player like Dom Inglot,

2:17:172:17:21

I used to find this when playing

Karlovic and Lukas Rosol was like

2:17:212:17:25

this as well, it was not so much

their serve, because I was expecting

2:17:252:17:28

that that would be so damaging, the

difficult thing was sometimes you

2:17:282:17:33

would go three or four games where

they did not make a return and then

2:17:332:17:38

suddenly a couple at the same time

and you have been broken. I think

2:17:382:17:43

you mentioned this, John, Inglot has

got the capability of making solid

2:17:432:17:49

returns and flashing a few big

winners, or if it is ground strokes,

2:17:492:17:54

something that you do have the

ability to catch them and that cold.

2:17:542:18:02

They have only had one break point.

The last time they took the

2:18:022:18:06

Spaniards to deuce on the service

game is the second game of the

2:18:062:18:09

second set. It just feels a lot

closer than that right now.

Jamie

2:18:092:18:15

Murray got involved in that

discussion at the changeover which

2:18:152:18:17

is the first time we have seen that.

Both really pumped up now. This

2:18:172:18:27

theoretically is the play that they

are going to break out of the two.

2:18:272:18:31

Lopez' service has been so good.

2:18:312:18:34

The ball kid did well to get out of

the way then.

2:19:032:19:12

Pretty close.

That has hit the line

that one, I think.

It is annoying. A

2:19:412:19:53

good return as well.

It is annoying

because that was a good return. Now

2:19:532:19:59

it will be the first serve again.

That is the last thing you need.

2:19:592:20:10

Terrific. The first time he has held

serve to love and he did it for-

2:21:162:21:20

five. Impressive.

2:21:202:21:25

Trouble. Steered that so well,

didn't he?

He seemed to have a long

2:22:492:22:59

time to hit that and prepare his

serve.

2:22:592:23:07

serve.

It is that left-hand.

A two

hander, guiding that.

2:23:072:23:17

This is about guts and determination

for the British pair. They need to

2:23:342:23:39

give themselves at least a shot at a

tie-break. You never know what can

2:23:392:23:46

happen.

2:23:462:23:53

That was a good second serve but not

that good. That was a wild forehand.

2:24:052:24:14

15-30. Just pulled right off it.

2:24:142:24:24

They have been lucky with that let.

They have been lucky period today.

2:25:012:25:14

Made it.

2:25:292:25:38

Break point.

2:25:432:25:46

That was really well done from both

players. And for Inglot to be so

2:26:112:26:18

positive for his movement on such a

big point. He was able to almost

2:26:182:26:22

slam dunk that ball away.

2:26:222:26:32

That is a wonderful shot. Where did

he find that angle from? The

2:26:372:26:43

half-volley was fantastic there from

Jamie Murray. He could not hit that

2:26:432:26:47

any better than that.

2:26:472:26:52

That is an amazing shot.

2:26:582:27:04

When you think the shots they have

hit in this game and then that.

That

2:27:432:27:49

is the second second serve he has

hit and both times he has tried to

2:27:492:27:53

hit the forehand with this bin and

has taken it to his backhand. I

2:27:532:27:57

don't know why he is running round

that. His backhand has been so

2:27:572:28:03

solid. I don't know why he did not

clock a couple of two handers?

2:28:032:28:13

Well done, a good stretch.

2:28:242:28:30

I'm surprised he has still got a

voice!

2:28:382:28:43

What a hold. They are on the window

ledge but they are still on it.

Good

2:28:522:28:59

hold, courtesy of Carreno Busta

about getting very tight and choking

2:28:592:29:03

big-time on the two returns.

They

have got to feed off that if they

2:29:032:29:09

can.

Of course. Lopez plays so

solidly throughout. Carino Buster

2:29:092:29:16

has been up and down.

SUE BARKER: What a brave hold that

2:29:162:29:24

was. The game goes on. Just to tell

you that we are staying with the

2:29:242:29:29

tennis on BBC Two. We are not going

anywhere, we are staying with the

2:29:292:29:33

tennis right now.

2:29:332:29:41

Yes, it was a gutsy hold. A minimum

tie-break now for Great Britain.

In

2:29:412:29:48

these situations, it is much better

from a British point of view to come

2:29:482:29:52

through a few tough games, because

even if it goes to five sets, and if

2:29:522:29:57

it goes into a

2:29:572:30:05

it goes into a tie-break, the

Spanish team, just that tiny bit of

2:30:052:30:07

destruction to think, we had the

forehand returns, we had the chance,

2:30:072:30:10

we could have been off already.

Two

from 12 on the break points.

The

2:30:102:30:16

British pair have been hanging in,

that is what they have been doing.

2:30:162:30:19

Sometimes you have to do that.

2:30:192:30:23

That is so good. The second over

head in particular.

Both of them

2:30:532:30:58

smash bes. He made them look easy.

The second he hit from beside his

2:30:582:31:06

ear. At the start of the point,

there was a very nervy volley from

2:31:062:31:10

Carreno-Busta.

What was he doing on

that one? Not that one, that was

2:31:102:31:17

immaculate.

2:31:172:31:26

Good try.

2:31:272:31:35

Good instincts from Carreno-Busta to

close on that one.

2:31:372:31:49

Tie-break it is. Still unbroken, the

Spaniards, only one break point

2:32:522:33:03

offered in the match. This is the

equivalent of a penalty shoot-out.

2:33:032:33:08

Anything could happen here.

Absolutely.

You have got to give the

2:33:082:33:15

Spanish team a lot of credit. Three

sets on clay and to have not lost

2:33:152:33:22

serve is pretty good going.

2:33:222:33:30

It's in.

Oh, that was lucky.

2:33:412:33:52

You can understand why he is wanting

to make the move. But Carreno-Busta

2:34:362:34:39

is so good from the back. He just

saw him go.

2:34:392:34:52

Got the mini-break back.

He had a

lot of time on that forehand.

It is

2:34:572:35:02

very tight.

That was the middle of

the net that forehand. You would

2:35:022:35:08

expect him to have hit a dipping

shot there and at least made the

2:35:082:35:12

Brits play.

2:35:122:35:19

Brits play.

It is at the opposite

end now for the tie-break for all of

2:35:192:35:25

them.

2:35:252:35:32

Oh, what a recovery that was from

Jamie Murray, that lunge volley, but

2:35:432:35:51

it didn't do any good.

2:35:512:35:58

This is a healthy lead.

Yes.

Two

service points to come too.

2:36:222:36:38

He has been the best server on the

court by miles.

2:37:002:37:12

First time playing together.

2:37:172:37:25

Two points away from a 2-1 lead.

2:37:322:37:39

Good effort, good hands there from

Inglot.

2:38:072:38:18

He has made another one of those.

The backhand has been so good.

The

2:38:532:39:05

Brits doing a good job of hanging

in, but just... Too big a gap and

2:39:052:39:13

thinking back to that lucky return

on the first point in the tie-break,

2:39:132:39:17

so important to get your nose in

front.

Four match points.

2:39:172:39:22

Wonderful return. They're still

hanging in.

Possibly his best return

2:40:022:40:08

of the match. One more of these from

Jamie Murray would make it

2:40:082:40:13

interesting!

2:40:132:40:22

That will do it. Delight for

Feliciano Lopez and Pablo

2:40:322:40:40

Carreno-Busta. The first time

playing together, they have given

2:40:402:40:44

Spain a 2-1 lead. They have won the

pivotal doubles.

Great performance

2:40:442:40:50

from the Spanish team. They will be

delighted with that. They all had to

2:40:502:40:56

give themselves a big lift after the

disappointment of the singles.

2:40:562:41:00

Carreno-Busta for all his experience

and his individual career, he is

2:41:002:41:06

relatively inexperienced in the

Davis Cup and look what that means

2:41:062:41:09

to him.

No breaks of serve and he

only offered up one break point.

2:41:092:41:19

Jamie Murray was magnificent. Dom

Inglot improved. It was starting to

2:41:192:41:23

happen. It was just a little too

late. So Spain take the 2-1 lead

2:41:232:41:31

into the final day tomorrow.

STUDIO: Well played Spain, a

2:41:312:41:36

terrific performance from

Carreno-Busta and Feliciano Lopez.

2:41:362:41:40

Huge disappointment for Jamie and

Dom. As as Chris said, 2-1 up going

2:41:402:41:46

into tomorrow's singles matches,

Spain needing one victory and

2:41:462:41:49

Britain have to win both singles

matches. It will be down to the

2:41:492:41:54

captains who play. But I think you

will see this man on court, Pablo

2:41:542:41:59

Carreno-Busta. That is the schedule

and we will be back on BBC Two

2:41:592:42:04

tomorrow at 10 o'clock for the first

of those singles. That is the two No

2:42:042:42:09

1s facing each other. Coming up

after us this afternoon here on BBC

2:42:092:42:15

Two, it is Final Score at 4.30.

2:42:152:42:18

Tomorrow Six Nations continues at 3

o'clock.

2:42:252:42:29

A special documentary on Ellise

Christie.

2:42:402:42:47

Briefly, huge disappointment, that

was a match we felt Britain needed

2:42:472:42:51

to win?

Yes I think we did too. I

thought we were slight favourites

2:42:512:42:57

going in. Playing a scratch pairing.

But Dom Inglot played a poor match

2:42:572:43:03

by his standards. If you're not

making the returns of serve, you

2:43:032:43:07

can't break.

They didn't give them

much.

Lopez was the best player on

2:43:072:43:13

the the court. It was a tough match.

They were starting to get back, but

2:43:132:43:17

it was too late.

Do you think Kyle

Edmund will come in tomorrow?

I have

2:43:172:43:22

a feeling he won't. I think they

will stick with him.

They will hope

2:43:222:43:32

Cam Norrie can do it again. It is

2-1 to Spain after today's doubles

2:43:322:43:36

match and it is very much advantage

to the host nation into the two

2:43:362:43:42

singles match tomorrow. From all of

us here, bye-bye.
