Welcome to the final day of

competition in this Davis Cup tie

0:00:360:00:40

between Great Britain and Spain.

After a disappointing loss in the

0:00:400:00:44

doubles yesterday Spain have the

advantage. The League 2-1, just one

0:00:440:00:49

win away from a place in the

quarterfinals. Britain must win

0:00:490:00:53

boast single matches today to make

it through. There is still

0:00:530:00:58

speculation Kyle Edmund might come

in on the fifth match is a decider

0:00:580:01:02

but for that to happen we need

another inspired performance from

0:01:020:01:04

this man.

0:01:040:01:08

Stunning.

0:01:080:01:14

What a way to get the break. Cameron

Norrie will serve for set three.

0:01:140:01:21

Great Britain have just taken the

first set of the weekend. Terrific

0:01:210:01:25

effort.

0:01:250:01:32

Made it!. Is that the shot of the

match? He's got the double break in

0:01:320:01:41

the fourth set. Would you believe

it? Cameron Norrie has taken Roberto

0:01:410:01:47

R

0:01:470:01:54

there have been plenty of points in

this match and this may be the

0:01:560:01:58

biggest so far. Norrie with the

double break. Two match points. Has

0:01:580:02:08

there ever been a better debut win

in Davis Cup than that? Star has

0:02:080:02:13

born Emma beer.

0:02:130:02:19

He was the hero on Friday, can he

cause another huge upset today

0:02:190:02:23

against a player ranked 21 in the

world, Alberto Ramos-Vinolas?

0:02:230:02:32

We are concentrating on Norrie

against Ramos-Vinolas. It's another

0:02:320:02:41

big match for Cameron but he proved

so much to us including himself on

0:02:410:02:49

Friday.

Nobody was expecting him to

come through and win let alone from

0:02:490:02:53

two set and a break down. It is

another massive match him, how often

0:02:530:02:58

do we see it in the big events like

the Grand Slams you have an underdog

0:02:580:03:03

producing a massive win and you

think can they come back the next

0:03:030:03:06

day or two days later and back it

up? It is like today to produce

0:03:060:03:10

another one that would be an even

bigger result than Friday I think.

0:03:100:03:14

I'd might guess but he thrives in

team competition which stems from

0:03:140:03:18

his time in US college tennis.

Exactly, it's a lot of pressure but

0:03:180:03:25

nothing like the Davis Cup. He went

out there and embraced the occasion

0:03:250:03:28

and from being 2-0 down and a break

I am still in shock you wonderful

0:03:280:03:33

the match and I think the whole team

and the whole tennis world is. One

0:03:330:03:37

of the most impressed results ever.

What was said was will we get a

0:03:370:03:44

reaction today? We had a day off,

then the phone calls and the text

0:03:440:03:48

messages, it would've been Leon

Smith's job to say great but there

0:03:480:03:52

is another match and 24 hours so

come down.

The way in which he

0:03:520:03:57

played, the manner, he has to

remember how he played those last

0:03:570:04:00

three sets because it was such

attacking tennis.

He mentioned he

0:04:000:04:04

focused on getting on top of the

ball and using his forehand. That is

0:04:040:04:07

one of the things I was most

impressed about. He was not lulled

0:04:070:04:11

into playing his opponent 's game,

he played his own game and got on

0:04:110:04:16

top of the lefty forehand and build

but he staggered into the backhand

0:04:160:04:22

side. What will be, he does not have

the same advantage to swing the ball

0:04:220:04:30

out because it will be going to

Ramos-Vinolas's forehand. When he

0:04:300:04:34

came forward he won so many points

from the net so he will want to use

0:04:340:04:40

that again.

And although

Ramos-Vinolas won it was not that

0:04:400:04:46

dominant performance in beating Liam

Broady.

No, I thought Liam Broady

0:04:460:04:51

played very well even if he didn't

win. He ended up not taking a break

0:04:510:04:58

points he had and then he had set

point in the tie-breaker so he could

0:04:580:05:02

have won two sets and I thought

Ramos was very tight and his captain

0:05:020:05:07

was even more nervous than he was! I

am fascinated by this because we

0:05:070:05:11

don't know, there is so much

pressure on the Spaniard as well, he

0:05:110:05:15

is supposed to win by everyone.

Everything was bothering him, the

0:05:150:05:20

tension of his racket, he did not

feel comfortable out there.

0:05:200:05:24

Speculation about Kyle Edmund, he

was out practising yesterday and

0:05:240:05:28

Liam Smith had denied practising

again today. Going through a fair

0:05:280:05:31

old work-out. We are confident if

needed he will step up -- Leon Smith

0:05:310:05:39

had him out practising again today.

He is trying to get him as close as

0:05:390:05:47

he can to match fitness, we don't

know if Norrie is being put in

0:05:470:05:52

because Kyle is not fit enough, or

if it's a tactical sense to think we

0:05:520:05:58

need to win the two matches, you

would think the best chance is with

0:05:580:06:02

Kyle Edmund and Cameron Norrie, not

Kyle Edmund and Liam Broady.

It

0:06:020:06:07

changes, if Kyle Edmund came in, all

the pressure would be an Liam Broady

0:06:070:06:16

so his only option was to play at

that way.

I think if Norrie pulls

0:06:160:06:22

off another upset we will have

changes on both sides.

I think Kyle

0:06:220:06:27

will play, I do not think they would

put Bautista Agut after his

0:06:270:06:34

performance. I think he's gone. It

will be interesting to what happens.

0:06:340:06:39

He just has to get off to a good

start doesn't he?

He started very

0:06:390:06:46

well on Friday, for two up then he

lost his momentum and I think I

0:06:460:06:50

mentioned on the day you could see

the belief disappearing in front of

0:06:500:06:54

your eyes then he managed to get

that back. He will want to start the

0:06:540:06:59

match in the exact same way.

Interestingly looks quite cold this

0:06:590:07:03

morning so conditions will be a bit

more slow. We don't know how both

0:07:030:07:08

players are going to react. Ramos

was very inconsistent. Although we

0:07:080:07:13

saw what Cameron can do on Friday he

is still an unknown player for his

0:07:130:07:18

opponent so we will have to spend

time figuring out, what he can do,

0:07:180:07:24

how can counter what Cameron Norrie

is doing.

Ramos-Vinolas will not

0:07:240:07:29

take this lightly having seen what

Cameron is capable of. He played way

0:07:290:07:32

above his ranking.

That is what you

talk about the Davis Cup, players

0:07:320:07:38

playing above the ranking and below

the ranking and Cameron lost the

0:07:380:07:43

occasion. I liked how he kept saying

to Leon Smith about his physicality

0:07:430:07:47

because I think Leon

0:07:470:07:49

to Leon Smith about his physicality

because I think Leon, you get

0:07:490:07:51

concerned, he's never played five

sets, but he said physically I feel

0:07:510:07:56

I am better than my opponent so he

has the confidence which is great to

0:07:560:08:01

see. He loved the occasion so I

don't think the physicality will be

0:08:010:08:05

a problem. He can stay out there all

day long.

He plays lots of matches

0:08:050:08:11

on the challenger circuit, it's hard

graft when you are that far down the

0:08:110:08:15

world rankings.

You mentioned it

before Friday, he won a lot of

0:08:150:08:20

tennis matches at the end of last

year and although they are

0:08:200:08:23

challenger, not the main tour, he is

still beating players between 200

0:08:230:08:27

and 100 and will have been some top

100 players in that tournament as

0:08:270:08:31

well. It will be interesting to see

how Ramos comes out because the

0:08:310:08:36

Spanish reaction yesterday to what

happened on Friday fantastic I

0:08:360:08:39

thought. The doubles, potentially

50-50 but they got a bit of a fright

0:08:390:08:44

on Friday and I think having the

experience of low pay is on the

0:08:440:08:48

court made a difference so I expect

Ramos to be razor sharp -- the

0:08:480:08:53

experience of having Lopez on the

court.

Very different styles between

0:08:530:09:00

the captains. Leon so supportive,

Sergi Bruguera, his first time as

0:09:000:09:07

captain and he got quite animated

with Ramos-Vinolas.

Sometimes when

0:09:070:09:11

you have a captain who has been as

great a player as Sergi Bruguera

0:09:110:09:15

they find it hard to relate to

somebody missing shots because they

0:09:150:09:19

did not miss any. You have to be

careful you don't give too much

0:09:190:09:23

information. When you have young

players out you tend to talk more

0:09:230:09:26

and when you have experienced

players you talk less. I thought

0:09:260:09:29

Sergi Bruguera was going the

opposite way. It will be interesting

0:09:290:09:34

to see if he can sit down.

We will

learn a lot from the first few

0:09:340:09:39

games. Thank you, that is the match

we are looking forward to, can

0:09:390:09:42

Cameron Norrie do it again?

0:09:420:09:45

COMMENTATOR: Very chilly conditions.

0:09:480:09:53

COMMENTATOR: Very chilly conditions.

Bit of a breeze and quite a lot of

0:09:530:09:59

cloud over the mountains. What a

stunning backdrop and then uses. --

0:09:590:10:07

and venue this is.

0:10:070:10:14

Two lefties, the first meeting

between the two.

0:10:450:10:56

The president of the ITF on the

left.

0:12:040:12:11

Break point straightaway for Spain.

0:12:300:12:37

The forehand is such a weapon.

Certainly developing into one.

0:13:050:13:17

Did not do enough on the ball, you

could see it just sitting there.

0:13:170:13:21

Plenty of time, look at the

forehand.

0:13:210:13:30

When you look at these points and

you get the cold weather it makes

0:13:550:13:59

conditions even slower and this

clay-court is slow already without

0:13:590:14:04

these weather conditions so putting

the ball away here there is going to

0:14:040:14:07

be a lot of working of the legs in

this match.

0:14:070:14:10

Norrie's journey on Friday for hours

one minute.

0:14:240:14:32

one minute. Ramos-Vinolas a couple

of hours. A big difference.

It is

0:14:330:14:38

but the way Cameron Norrie played it

it was like he was just going out

0:14:380:14:43

for a match in the park. The last

three sets it was like, physically,

0:14:430:14:48

no problem. Looked like he could

have played another two sets on that

0:14:480:14:51

first day.

The last three sets

three, two and two.

Impossible.

0:14:510:15:05

Served nine double faults on Friday

which was a bit of an issue.

0:15:050:15:13

Third break point of the game.

0:15:190:15:21

The perfect start for Spain.

0:15:280:15:31

He's not got that much experience

himself in Davis Cup, Ramos-Vinolas.

0:15:360:15:42

Won in straight sets on Friday but

did not play the sort of tennis

0:15:420:15:46

which has seen them get to number 21

in the world. This is still a big

0:15:460:15:50

day and occasion for him.

Of course,

closing out the Davis Cup match,

0:15:500:15:55

there is no more attention in the

tennis player 's career than Davis

0:15:550:15:58

Cup. I think it's up there with

Grand Slams. It's something

0:15:580:16:04

different, you don't want to let

down your team-mates are your

0:16:040:16:07

country. It's so big. If you can

play well in Davis Cup you can play

0:16:070:16:12

well anywhere and that is why it was

so impressive with Cameron Norrie

0:16:120:16:15

because it shows he's a big occasion

player and relished what was in

0:16:150:16:19

front of him. That's just great for

the future. Not a good start here

0:16:190:16:26

but we did not have a good start on

the first day either and it didn't

0:16:260:16:30

make a difference so certainly no

need to panic. Very early days.

0:16:300:16:45

Are looking to boss as Leon Smith

told him to do on Friday.

The

0:16:520:16:58

forehand to forehand battle, lefty

to lefty, that be interesting.

0:16:580:17:08

Came into the net so well on Friday

again, that has to be part of his

0:17:530:17:58

plan today.

He will certainly try

but the conditions look so heavy,

0:17:580:18:03

you can see in these rallies so far

he's not had many shots that he

0:18:030:18:07

could come in at the moment. It's

early days at the moment but good

0:18:070:18:11

length from the Spaniard so far.

Will not see many of those from him

0:18:110:18:16

either. Ramos-Vinolas, you're not

coming up against a feared server so

0:18:160:18:24

if you are down a break you almost

have a hit on almost every serve but

0:18:240:18:28

then he serves the ace just to show

I don't know what I'm talking about.

0:18:280:18:34

Three aces against Broady.

Which is

not a lot.

0:18:340:18:47

Seems to be a lot more top dressing

on the court today. Just to slow it

0:18:560:19:01

down even more. Home advantage and

all that.

The groundskeeper smacked

0:19:010:19:07

out last night at midnight and dump

the whole lorry-load. They wouldn't

0:19:070:19:13

do a thing like that, would they?

No...

0:19:130:19:16

That's good tennis.

0:19:350:19:43

Beat Andy Murray when he was world

number one in Monte Carlo last year.

0:19:510:19:54

That is the calibre of the man.

0:19:540:19:56

It is interesting, just looking at

this match again, very early days

0:20:110:20:15

but Ramos-Vinolas, we talk about

Cameron Norrie and what the win did

0:20:150:20:18

for him but I think the win against

Liam Broady did a lot for him as

0:20:180:20:22

well because even though he should

have won the match it was a live

0:20:220:20:26

Davis Cup rubber and he did not play

well but he got through it. Ready to

0:20:260:20:31

me he looks sharper in his first two

games. Looks more authoritative.

0:20:310:20:35

More confident. His captain giving

him a nod, did not see many of those

0:20:350:20:41

in the first match until about match

point.

0:20:410:20:49

As you mentioned it is tough backing

up such a great win, even with a day

0:20:550:21:01

off, it is never easy. Not to have a

let down

no.

0:21:010:21:11

That is magnificent. What a shot.

Cannot get that backspin drop shot

0:21:420:21:50

back. Brilliant.

Already trying to

change it up, Norrie.

Good slice

0:21:500:22:00

there and this one here, to drop

shot like that of the no peace shot,

0:22:000:22:06

look at the side spin, beautiful

shot.

0:22:060:22:12

That's a rare mistake but you're

right about Cameron Norrie backing

0:22:200:22:22

it up, it's almost, I am sure Leon

when he saw him in the locker room

0:22:220:22:30

said enjoy this for about an hour

then switch off. The match is over.

0:22:300:22:40

Was he looking to serve and volley

there?

It was a good serve, I will

0:22:490:22:54

tell you that much. This is a big

game for him.

0:22:540:23:02

This is a fantastic start from

Ramos-Vinolas.

He is playing well

0:23:390:23:44

isn't he? Looks very sharp.

0:23:440:23:53

Almost hit the Sorbus -- service

line and Norrie surprised by it,

0:23:570:24:06

didn't move.

0:24:060:24:08

Just magnificent. He is showing

everybody here why he is number 21

0:24:350:24:41

in the world.

In the first match did

not sure that to be honest. It was a

0:24:410:24:47

very edgy looking match and he just

got the get out, to get it through,

0:24:470:24:52

the won ugly to use that term. But

today, now you will see him, you see

0:24:520:24:58

why he has had the wins he has had.

He is looking very difficult, at the

0:24:580:25:07

moment, early doors, but where is

Cameron Norrie going to penetrate

0:25:070:25:12

and get the winners?

We saw on

Friday what a quick learner he was

0:25:120:25:18

and it's his first time ever as a

pro player on a clay court, the way

0:25:180:25:21

he learnt and changed things up,

it's big puzzle today.

I think one

0:25:210:25:27

thing right away is on the ground

strokes when he does get pushed

0:25:270:25:31

back, as soon as he hits the ball

hug the baseline. We have already

0:25:310:25:36

seen two drop shots which are being

won and that's a tactic the Spanish

0:25:360:25:40

players are going to use. You can

always go backwards and hit the ball

0:25:400:25:45

and come back forwards again so you

are ready for the drop shot. That's

0:25:450:25:48

one thing right away to look at. But

at the moment he's just not missing.

0:25:480:25:57

It is a cold day today, 12 Celsius,

just 53 Fahrenheit.

The locals did

0:25:570:26:05

their homework on the weather

forecast!

0:26:050:26:12

Well done.

In the first match, I

don't remember the sliced backhand

0:26:240:26:35

being so good. So far he's used that

shot very well, a lot of bite on

0:26:350:26:39

that shot.

0:26:390:26:41

Was that in?

0:27:380:27:44

It was.

0:27:490:27:57

They both love their forehands.

Good

length on that one.

0:28:170:28:28

Hiding the baseline there, trying to

take away the time from

0:29:000:29:08

Ramos-Vinolas, still think he has to

do that.

0:29:080:29:13

Trying everything. It is impossible

to play any better than this.

He

0:29:330:29:40

started off so well. It is amazing

what a winning does to you. His body

0:29:400:29:45

language is different. On the first

day he looked timid, even though he

0:29:450:29:51

was winning, he never looked

comfortable. Today there is a spring

0:29:510:29:55

in his step. An authority about him

that looks pretty impressive.

0:29:550:30:05

The land. Didn't see that on Friday.

0:30:120:30:16

Is it possible to start a match too

well sometimes, especially three out

0:30:500:30:57

of five?

Not really. As long as you

don't think about it and think, I am

0:30:570:31:06

playing well.

Then it is easy now

for Norrie to overplay.

Exactly.

0:31:060:31:17

Again, in the first match, he lost

the first two sets and down a break,

0:31:170:31:23

but certainly didn't panic. In his

short career, you can say he has

0:31:230:31:32

done that.

He turned professional

last year.

0:31:320:31:40

Amazing.

0:31:400:31:46

Well done.

Interesting, at the start

of the match on Friday, his little

0:31:470:31:59

experience on clay, Norrie wasn't

sliding into the drop shots. But by

0:31:590:32:03

the end of the match, he was. It is

such a learning curve, this surface.

0:32:030:32:17

He was hitting winners of both wings

on Friday. Encouraging to see one

0:32:250:32:29

there.

0:32:290:32:30

That is brilliant. That really was.

The slice, it really took off from

0:33:480:33:57

his racket. I thought it was going

to be so low, almost need a wedge to

0:33:570:34:02

get this one up. But he got

underneath there and whipped it

0:34:020:34:07

crosscourt. Excellent shot. Well

done. On the scoreboard, Norrie.

0:34:070:34:19

Something for them to cheer about.

We had some strong clues with Norrie

0:34:200:34:26

with his college career, as we

talked about. He went to the Texas

0:34:260:34:33

Christian University, the top ranked

college player, the first time the

0:34:330:34:37

university had had that order of

merit. He went a season undefeated.

0:34:370:34:42

Then he didn't play the NCAA last

time because he wanted to turn pro.

0:34:420:34:49

But to 114 in the world. To do it

back quite, very good signs.

Very

0:34:490:34:56

impressive and to come through the

college system in The States have

0:34:560:35:00

the year he had, the calibre of

tennis is very good. The pressure on

0:35:000:35:07

those matches they play every day,

is extreme and then go in the

0:35:070:35:14

futures and challengers. There are

good players on that circuit and to

0:35:140:35:17

break through as quickly as he has,

it is very impressive and then to

0:35:170:35:22

make his Davis Cup debut and treat

it like, this is what I have been

0:35:220:35:26

born to do and I am going to enjoy

the occasion. It is such a good

0:35:260:35:31

sign. Such a good sign.

This is a

huge test today. Great Britain have

0:35:310:35:41

to win both the reverse singles, to

win the tie. Sometimes that can just

0:35:410:35:47

release you. And Ramos-Vinolas,

knowing they just need one from two

0:35:470:35:51

can make you a bit tight. But far

from it. Been very impressive for 25

0:35:510:35:56

minutes so far.

0:35:560:35:59

It caught the line.

I think he

thought it was going wide when he

0:37:490:37:56

went soon hit it, he didn't get set.

His length at the moment, the

0:37:560:38:01

Spanish player is pinning Norrie

back. Back from the baseline, over

0:38:010:38:07

and over again. He did well to hang

in there in that rally.

0:38:070:38:19

Nicely done. From all areas of the

court.

0:38:220:38:31

court. They are in a good mood.

Victory in the doubles yesterday,

0:38:340:38:43

setting Spain up nicely.

0:38:430:38:45

So accurate. It is very difficult at

the moment for Norrie to get ahead

0:39:110:39:17

in the rallies. He is having to

defend all the time.

0:39:170:39:25

Just two, double faults in his match

on Friday.

0:39:590:40:07

Super.

That is one area where he

will have to take a few chances on,

0:40:360:40:43

his second serve. He took that nice

and early on the backhand and got

0:40:430:40:47

ahead in the rally.

0:40:470:40:53

ahead in the rally.

He is two from

six on his second serve,

0:40:570:41:01

Ramos-Vinolas.

Yes.

0:41:010:41:09

That is a very, very good break of

serve.

0:41:190:41:25

serve.

First serve percentage from

Norrie at the moment is under 50%.

0:41:260:41:29

It is hurting him. But he is back in

this opening set. The remembrance of

0:41:290:41:36

Friday, from all who witnessed it.

The Spanish camp will be more than

0:41:360:41:42

aware of that, it carries a bit of

weight.

It certainly does. It is

0:41:420:41:47

like, here he comes.

0:41:470:41:54

That is a little ambitious.

0:43:020:43:08

He is really getting back into this.

0:43:460:43:56

If he can hold here.

I think we have

an interesting set.

0:43:560:44:08

Ramos-Vinolas, has other ideas.

Another break point.

0:44:240:44:29

He breaks again, Ramos-Vinolas. Has

got the first set again by the

0:44:590:45:08

scruff of the neck.

He is giving him

too many looks at his second serve

0:45:080:45:14

at the moment. The first serve

percentage has got to get up. At

0:45:140:45:22

3030, two second service,

Ramos-Vinolas hit two second serve

0:45:220:45:26

and then right away got into an

attacking position and forced the

0:45:260:45:30

errors. On the clay court you have

to be at least in the 60%.

He is

0:45:300:45:37

still under 50% and that will not

get the job done. Not with the way

0:45:370:45:43

this man is playing today and

Ramos-Vinolas is

0:45:430:45:51

Ramos-Vinolas is getting 70% of his

first serves in. He was

0:45:510:45:57

quarterfinalist at the French couple

of years ago, so a typical clay

0:45:570:46:02

court player. It is going to be very

tough. He will be very tough to

0:46:020:46:06

beat. Very tough.

0:46:060:46:11

What a player he was on clay. Twice

the French champion in 93 and 94

0:46:170:46:23

will stop.

0:46:230:46:32

I am sure in his mind, he will be

thinking because he was so good on

0:46:340:46:42

clay. New balls the Ramos-Vinolas.

Serving for the opening set at 5-2.

0:46:420:46:56

The winner came from out of the

blue. He has got that ability.

0:47:420:47:50

Played well in the doubles

yesterday, Jamie Murray.

0:47:520:48:02

Thrill for him to partner his

younger brother, Andy.

0:48:040:48:15

It is the length he is hitting, the

forehand. Pushing back Norrie all

0:48:220:48:31

the time, not giving him any time to

breathe here.

0:48:310:48:39

I thought that was pretty close.

0:49:080:49:18

Two set points now.

0:49:500:49:53

Interesting change-up in that rally.

Couple of forehands from Norrie

0:51:080:51:12

where he took the pace of, with a

lot of spin, got it nice and deep.

0:51:120:51:23

Wow. Two double faults in the last

three points. From nowhere. He has

0:51:430:51:54

looked so secure, serving for the

set.

0:51:540:51:59

He is trying everything, Norrie.

Tried to change the pace up again in

0:52:370:52:42

that rally.

0:52:420:52:52

that rally.

He has got a lot of

plans up his sleeve. I am sure they

0:52:520:52:56

talked about that at the last

changeover, I would think.

0:52:560:53:05

Beautifully done. No way was he

missing that drop shot.

0:53:120:53:24

missing that drop shot.

Perfect time

to hit the drop shot. His opponent

0:53:240:53:28

is deep and he is inside the court

when he hit it.

0:53:280:53:35

Would you believe it?

Didn't see

that one coming.

He is what many

0:54:060:54:17

players would call, Norrie, a real

tennis player. He has got such a

0:54:170:54:21

good tennis brain.

He has, adapting

all the time.

First set looked gone.

0:54:210:54:31

And then the hiccup from

Ramos-Vinolas. But I think the

0:54:310:54:34

hiccup is caused by what he achieved

on Friday.

It certainly helped.

0:54:340:54:48

It would be an interesting service

game at 5-4. He should beat up a set

0:54:590:55:07

and a break, the way he has

dominated. But it is not over yet.

0:55:070:55:17

What a change-up. Beautiful

change-up.

0:55:270:55:33

change-up.

Look at the smiles now.

There is the change-up. High and

0:55:330:55:41

deep and then he pounces. He has got

him rattled. At the start of this

0:55:410:55:51

match, Ramos-Vinolas was in his own

zone. Now he is preoccupied with

0:55:510:55:58

what is coming at him from the other

end.

Exactly right.

0:55:580:56:05

Hit the net twice. Has been a

Spanish net this weekend.

It has. It

0:56:180:56:27

has. Although they say it evens out,

but that is a load of nonsense.

0:56:270:56:33

Tough point.

0:57:080:57:13

Right choice?

He made such a good

one, previous point, but from that

0:58:190:58:25

position he had the whole court to

go for the big forehand.

0:58:250:58:33

No way!

What was that? What a point.

That is the best point of the tie,

0:59:010:59:10

let alone this match. Exhausting

point and then to finish with that

0:59:100:59:15

shot. Incredible. Outstanding.

0:59:150:59:23

shot. Incredible. Outstanding. That

is a bit of respect.

0:59:250:59:32

Fabulous hold. Would not want to be

Ramos-Vinolas right now.

Now we have

0:59:501:00:00

got an interesting game coming up.

Totally out of the set,

1:00:001:00:09

Ramos-Vinolas showing everyone why

he has done what he has done and why

1:00:091:00:13

he is where he is yet this man

refuses to give up thinking about

1:00:131:00:17

how to make things happen.

He was

outclassed at the beginning but what

1:00:171:00:23

is so impressive is that he's got

plan B and plan C. He can change it

1:00:231:00:30

up which is so important. He's not a

1-piece player. He's changed his

1:00:301:00:36

game. You can see how hard he is

breathing, he was not run around

1:00:361:00:40

like this in the first match even

though it was four hours. These are

1:00:401:00:43

punishing rallies. But he's doing so

well, what a we to hang in there.

1:00:431:00:55

This is very exciting for British

tennis.

I cannot wait to see this

1:00:551:00:59

next game.

He is a rookie! What a

debut!

1:00:591:01:14

Both doing the Rafa Nadal thing,

sprinting. They said 0% chance of

1:01:141:01:24

rain today but that looks pretty

ominous. So what now?

1:01:241:01:34

ominous. So what now? 40-15 up in

his last service game then it got

1:01:341:01:36

unbelievably tight, serving for the

set again Ramos-Vinolas.

1:01:361:01:44

What must he be thinking, who is

this guy?

Yeah, I should be upset

1:01:571:02:03

and a break. Look at the look.

1:02:031:02:13

Funny bounce, has it caught the

line?

1:02:221:02:30

The umpire is a bit slow.

Has to go

to the exact mark. He's now looking

1:02:311:02:38

up and down the line, he doesn't

have the lying the exact mark.

I

1:02:381:02:42

think it's that one, maybe that one.

This is what the umpires have got to

1:02:421:02:48

do, then maybe get the line judge

up. To get the right mark.

I don't

1:02:481:02:53

know why he hesitated so long.

The

way his eyes when he did not know

1:02:531:03:00

which mark it was.

He didn't know

which one it was.

The ball did take

1:03:001:03:08

a funny sort of hop like it caught

the side.

That is what it looked

1:03:081:03:12

like.

It's a long gap now if he has

to hit a second serve.

He does have

1:03:121:03:20

to do, cannot change it now.

It is

all happening.

1:03:201:03:33

The umpire cannot possibly change it

if he does not know the correct

1:03:431:03:45

mark, he has to go with the

linesman.

1:03:451:03:47

That is one for the umpire I think.

1:04:231:04:25

Very accurate on the forehand side.

1:04:491:04:53

Nothing wrong with that tactic. Just

pulled it wide, but he took it

1:05:261:05:30

early. Two feet inside the baseline.

1:05:301:05:40

Oh my goodness!

What a volley! Are

you kidding?!

That had site spin and

1:06:331:06:43

was going back towards the net.

I

thought he was done, what a volley.

1:06:431:06:53

Seriously? What is your ranking?

LAUGHTER

1:06:551:07:00

It's another lifeline.

1:07:001:07:02

That is brilliant play. That was a

fabulous rally from both players.

1:07:341:07:40

What a lob that was from

Ramos-Vinolas. I thought he was out

1:07:401:07:46

of the point.

1:07:461:07:51

of the point.

This has turned into

such a great set of tennis.

Superb.

1:07:561:08:02

Did well in the end.

Did very well

in the end.

1:08:341:08:42

I'm not quite sure Leon can believe

what he is seeing either.

He is

1:08:511:08:57

suppressing a smile the whole time.

Turning around as if to say I knew

1:08:571:09:03

he had that in him. Practice is one

thing but this is a whole different

1:09:031:09:08

story in the match.

1:09:081:09:09

He's only gone and broken back

again.

Outstanding.

This is

1:09:141:09:25

remarkable. And how important this

opening set bearing in mind he was

1:09:251:09:30

on court for four hours and one

minute, Ramos-Vinolas two and a half

1:09:301:09:33

hours on Friday.

This is an

hour-long and it is only 5-5. I hope

1:09:331:09:39

his legs are in good shape because

if this continues like this it could

1:09:391:09:44

continue for five hours if the

tennis they have played like this,

1:09:441:09:47

it's exhausting watching it.

1:09:471:09:56

It's not the same as playing,

training. He's done it in one match

1:10:071:10:12

in his professional career and it

was only two days ago, again a half

1:10:121:10:16

ago, whatever. At some stage of this

goes long you would think that will

1:10:161:10:21

catch up to him but maybe not? Maybe

he is bionic?

1:10:211:10:33

Here we go now.

This is good, taking

his time.

1:10:411:10:50

his time.

Such a huge effort to get

back to 5-5.

Yes, taking his time,

1:10:501:10:56

not rushing. Visualising what he's

going to do.

1:10:561:11:03

It is that length again.

What a

seesaw set.

Fantastic tennis.

Three

1:11:111:11:24

more break points.

1:11:241:11:29

11 games, seven breaks.

Ramos-Vinolas will have another

1:11:461:11:49

chance to serve out the first set.

You have to admire him as well in

1:11:491:11:56

this case because he must have been

shell-shocked after losing the lead

1:11:561:11:59

that he had and then coming in, OK

he had some help from Cameron Norrie

1:11:591:12:04

in the first couple of points but

still he played a very good service

1:12:041:12:09

game to break. Couple of immaculate

forehands.

1:12:091:12:13

What a set.

It is amazing, and

conversations on both side of the

1:12:181:12:25

net, so much to talk about.

Of

course.

1:12:251:12:31

It's an amazing atmosphere. And the

tennis has inspired it. The

1:12:371:12:42

occasion, Davis Cup, but the tennis

they are producing, it is a party.

1:12:421:12:48

It's fantastic. The quality, Cameron

Norrie, it is amazing how far he has

1:12:481:12:56

come.

So pleased he's got a Welsh

mother.

1:12:561:13:10

What this time?

Don't ask me!

Tie-breaker would be a fitting end

1:13:121:13:23

to the set wouldn't it? What drama

that would be. Anyway, long way to

1:13:231:13:29

go.

Third time, Ramos-Vinolas

serving for this opening set.

1:13:291:13:41

A couple of tight points there. That

was the middle of the net, that

1:14:181:14:22

forehand.

1:14:221:14:27

Doesn't feel that they have had that

many unforced errors.

1:14:381:14:45

Just a fraction late getting to the

ball, Norrie.

1:14:571:15:09

Amazing, he's really not had to do

that much to get to 15-40 in this

1:15:351:15:38

game. As tight as one of those

drums.

1:15:381:15:46

.Net. Tight

1:16:241:16:30

got it. Tie-break it is. Norrie

deserves nothing less. Eight breaks

1:16:301:16:37

of serve in this set.

1:16:371:16:45

Decelerated on that second serve.

1:17:291:17:40

Settle, settle.

This happened after

he broke back the last time, lost it

1:18:091:18:13

a little bit, in terms of focus.

Yeah.

1:18:131:18:26

Yeah.

Not been a good front runner

in this set so far!

No.

1:18:271:18:38

Superbly done.

Really well done.

When he first went to hit the volley

1:18:581:19:06

I thought he was going to drift wide

but perfect control.

He is back with

1:19:061:19:15

us, Norrie.

He certainly is.

1:19:151:19:22

us, Norrie.

He certainly is. Hasn't

come to the net very often but

1:19:231:19:25

hasn't been able to.

1:19:251:19:31

Oh my goodness! He made that look so

easy! He circled stroke away.

Three

1:20:041:20:13

ridiculous winners in that set and

that was one of them. Looked like he

1:20:131:20:18

was out. Brilliant forehand. What a

reply.

If Ramos-Vinolas is not

1:20:181:20:25

thinking now how can I win this set?

Keys at the back and never thought

1:20:251:20:32

that was coming at him in a million

years.

1:20:321:20:40

He was half looking to see if Norrie

was coming in again, he's been

1:20:431:20:46

bamboozled here! Norrie is in front.

So resilient.

1:20:461:21:03

A look of shock.

1:21:221:21:26

I thought he was going to make that

as well.

What set of tennis.

1:22:011:22:10

It's an our own 12 minutes. -- it is

an hour and 12 minutes.

1:22:151:22:24

Just overcooked that forehand.

1:23:491:23:59

Three more set points.

1:24:221:24:27

Never knows when he is beaten.

That's a rare short ball that he had

1:25:141:25:21

the chance to attack, the length

from Ramos-Vinolas has been so good

1:25:211:25:26

but that one just leaned into it, to

get early.

1:25:261:25:30

Fourth set point.

1:25:421:25:47

A Titanic set of tennis comes to an

end, and and our and a quarter. --

1:26:021:26:12

one hour and a quarter.

Ramos-Vinolas comes away with it,

1:26:121:26:17

Spain are one setup. STUDIO: The

Spanish team with the huge sigh of

1:26:171:26:21

relief, they know how dangerous

Cameron Norrie is but he is still

1:26:211:26:25

very much in this match. We will be

right back with it but we can update

1:26:251:26:29

you with what is happening in the

world group.

1:26:291:26:35

world group. France leading 2-1

after winning the doubles in four

1:26:361:26:38

sets yesterday. What a thrill of

this was between Italy and Japan.

1:26:381:26:47

Having to save break and match

point, Fognini winning in five sets,

1:26:471:26:52

the toughest Davis Cup match he has

ever played he said. The winner of

1:26:521:26:56

this match will face Germany as they

beat Australia overnight with Zverev

1:26:561:27:01

defeating Nick Krygios in straight

sets. Krygios complaining of an arm

1:27:011:27:09

injury. Kazakhstan through, winning

the doubles to defeat Switzerland

1:27:091:27:14

3-0, dead robber today. Croatia 2-1

up against Canada.

1:27:141:27:22

The United States have wrapped up

victory against Serbia, winning the

1:27:301:27:34

doubles in four sets to win 3-0 and

Hungary, this young team winning the

1:27:341:27:40

doubles in five sets to keep the tie

allied against Belgium. 2-1 up

1:27:401:27:44

against last year 's runners-up.

That is what is happening in the

1:27:441:27:48

world group. Let's go back to the

match and see what Cameron Norrie

1:27:481:27:52

can do in the second set. Jamie

Bakker joining Chris Bradman for

1:27:521:27:58

this one. COMMENTATOR: Yes, what the

set of tennis we have witnessed.

1:27:581:28:04

It's such a great sport. I was

watching the last half hour, 45

1:28:041:28:10

minutes of that with the biggest

smile on my face.

How important that

1:28:101:28:18

Spain won the opening set?

It is

massive, for all of Cameron Norrie's

1:28:181:28:24

amazing play, the big picture of

trying to win the match, would it

1:28:241:28:28

have been better to have lost the

set 6-2, I don't know. Time will

1:28:281:28:31

tell.

1:28:311:28:34

The smiles are getting wider. 2-1

up, set up. Norrie over four hours

1:29:041:29:16

on court on Friday. It's looking

good for the whole nation.

1:29:161:29:23

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Of all the tactics we saw in that

1:30:391:30:43

first set from Norrie, and there

were a number, Jamie, what was his

1:30:431:30:46

best plan of action here?

It was the variety of all of them,

1:30:461:30:51

so impressive. We haven't seen him

come forward as much today as we did

1:30:511:30:55

on Friday. A lot of that is

specifically due to the tactics of

1:30:551:30:59

this player.

1:30:591:31:06

Well played. Keeps momentum.

From

4-0 in that first set, possibly what

1:31:101:31:22

was most impressive about it was

that he was going toe to toe with

1:31:221:31:25

Ramos from the baseline. And coming

off, you know, on top of a lot of

1:31:251:31:32

those rallies, it was incredible to

watch.

1:31:321:31:39

watch. Whatever the outcome of this

particular match, seeing Cameron

1:31:391:31:43

Norrie performing like this is

unbelievably exciting for British

1:31:431:31:47

tennis, with Kyle Edmund doing what

he's doing, Norrie looks like a

1:31:471:31:50

player that is going to go from

strength to strength and improve his

1:31:501:31:54

ranking. He looks like a player who

is going to play better than his

1:31:541:31:58

normal level in David cup matches.

-- Davis Cup matches. And then

1:31:581:32:06

there's Andy Murray. He's not bad,

is he?!

1:32:061:32:16

There's a freedom about

Ramos-Vinolas right now. He's been

1:32:481:32:52

released, almost, winning that first

set.

It does look like the start of

1:32:521:32:58

the first set against. He came out

with that razor sharp focus, as I

1:32:581:33:02

expected. He will be unbelievably

relieved to have won that first set.

1:33:021:33:15

Ramos-Vinolas is convinced that it

out. The umpire has already called

1:33:201:33:26

the score. And now he's changed his

mind Oh!

1:33:261:33:30

Real purpose. Interesting to see how

much he maintains that.

That part of

1:33:591:34:09

his game has been so impressive.

He's making it look easy. But on a

1:34:091:34:15

clay court, it isn't easy to

recognise every time you have the

1:34:151:34:18

opportunity, but also not to do too

much with it.

1:34:181:34:28

Superb hold from 0-30. Simona Halep,

in the Australian Open this year,

1:34:571:35:06

her coach has been working hard with

her to get the right mindset. He

1:35:061:35:10

walked out on her after Miami last

year because it wasn't happening,

1:35:101:35:14

she begged him to come back and she

is trying to win this elusive first

1:35:141:35:18

Grand Slam title. In one of her

interviews, for the first time I've

1:35:181:35:23

heard her say publicly, I understand

now, it's not about winning and

1:35:231:35:26

losing. Cameron Norrie just gives

you that overwhelming feeling of

1:35:261:35:31

exactly that. It is, how are you

going to get there? Every step of

1:35:311:35:38

the way.

1:35:381:35:40

I have watched is a lot of Simona

Halep play in the last three months.

1:35:571:36:01

There is a big difference in the way

she approaches things. Of course,

1:36:011:36:05

it's silly to say and individual

athlete in a sport as competitive as

1:36:051:36:11

tennis that they are not completely

immersed with winning and losing.

1:36:111:36:15

They are, of course, they want to

win. But it is understanding a

1:36:151:36:18

bigger picture to give youth a

better chance of winning. -- you the

1:36:181:36:25

better chance.

1:36:251:36:31

For many of you at home, I'm sure

you're watching Cameron Norrie for

1:36:361:36:41

the very first time this weekend.

Most of us are.

1:36:411:36:47

It's exciting.

1:36:471:36:49

One of two Spanish cup Dave --

Spanish Davis Cup winning sides.

1:37:441:37:56

2-1 lead. -- the lead.

1:38:071:38:13

This really has helped Ramos-Vinolas

this weekend. He is coming of age.

1:38:181:38:27

But these sorts of experiences, they

can take you to a completely

1:38:271:38:32

different level.

Definitely. I think

his performance and also Bautista

1:38:321:38:39

Agut's performance on Friday, a lot

of that was to do with a little bit

1:38:391:38:42

of complacency. It really looked as

if, well Mike Hookem blame them,

1:38:421:38:48

nobody really gave the British team

a shot, and certainly they didn't

1:38:481:38:52

think the matches would be this

competitive, let alone losing one of

1:38:521:38:57

the singles matches. He has found

himself in a few challenging

1:38:571:39:01

positions, as he did in the first

set against Liam Broady on Friday.

1:39:011:39:05

But what looked like in the first,

what was it, 15-20 minutes of this

1:39:051:39:10

match when he came out, he really

looked like the top 20 player that

1:39:101:39:15

he has been an pretty much is just

now. He thought this was going to be

1:39:151:39:18

a walk in the park, and it

absolutely isn't.

Novak Djokovic and

1:39:181:39:24

Serbia won cup for the first time.

He put a lot of the credit

1:39:241:39:28

boundaries individual success to

that firm. What it did for the

1:39:281:39:31

nation. It is an amazing

competition. However they want to

1:39:311:39:40

tweak it, long may it continue.

1:39:401:39:44

New balls. 1-2.

1:39:491:39:52

0-30 again for Norrie. As in the

last service game.

1:40:301:40:43

He keeps hitting Norrie, the now

lasts. He just won't go down. --

1:41:381:41:43

Manolas.

1:41:431:41:45

It's another really good hold.

Yes,

Norrie seems to have this really

1:42:061:42:13

valuable ability to shake off

disappointment very, very quickly.

1:42:131:42:17

You know, he doesn't dwell on any

setbacks. And I do think that comes

1:42:171:42:23

from this love of the game, love of

the fight. He comes on the court

1:42:231:42:32

accepting that he's going to hit

some bad shots, he is going to lose

1:42:321:42:36

some points, but it's like he's

saying, I'm fine with it, I'm ready

1:42:361:42:41

for the next point.

1:42:411:42:45

The serve is out. He's saying, the

point is over, you can't look at it

1:43:131:43:24

now. Leon Smith agrees with that.

1:43:241:43:28

Superb tennis. One of the worst

feelings to get drop shot mob.

1:43:411:43:56

A lot of success looking to come

forward together now.

He looks like

1:44:161:44:20

he's got a world forehand. It's a

really cultured shot. He can take

1:44:201:44:26

the pace off, hit it heavily high

over the net, give the opponent a

1:44:261:44:30

different look, he can also step in

and flatten it out, do some damage.

1:44:301:44:36

The serve was very close.

1:44:531:45:02

Lovely!

Mirrors that heavy, higher

forehand, just causing Ramos-Vinolas

1:45:591:46:09

so many problems. Getting it up I

want some might -- high on his

1:46:091:46:17

backhand. The drop shot didn't have

to be that good, his opponent was so

1:46:171:46:25

far out of position.

He hasn't gone

away, has he?

1:46:251:46:29

And again, it's rattling

Ramos-Vinolas. You can feel the

1:46:421:46:47

resistance. Some double faults in

the last three points, not for the

1:46:471:46:51

first time in the match. It's a

break point.

1:46:511:47:01

Norrie breaks. Finau last 40-15 up

in that game. -- Vinolas 40-15 up.

1:47:321:47:46

We talk about choice of shot a lot

in tennis, probably more so on a

1:47:461:47:52

clay court, how tricky that is. I

guess, Jamie, with his mindset, if

1:47:521:47:56

he's going to start thinking about

coming forward, it changes

1:47:561:48:00

everything in terms of choice of

shot.

I was looking for that right

1:48:001:48:03

at the start of the match, he

started on Friday coming" a lot and

1:48:031:48:08

we didn't see much of it at all for

the first half an hour or so. Part

1:48:081:48:11

of that was probably to do

1:48:111:48:18

of that was probably to do with the

quality of Ramos's play. But you're

1:48:181:48:20

right. What I'm loving about

watching Norrie play, not only his

1:48:201:48:22

energy, you can see in between

points, he's nodding to himself, his

1:48:221:48:25

head is full of positive thoughts.

But the variety in his game, he's

1:48:251:48:29

absolutely happy to go toe to toe

from the baseline. But as we have

1:48:291:48:33

seen and at as you quite rightly

say, if he wants to put his foot on

1:48:331:48:40

the gas and take control of the

match, he can do that. His skills

1:48:401:48:44

around the net are fantastic from

what we have seen so far.

For a

1:48:441:48:49

muscle in on us, I suppose he's just

got to keep doing what he's doing,

1:48:491:48:53

but he's also got a counterpoint to

the tactic too, hasn't he?

It's

1:48:531:48:58

interesting, he certainly looks like

a more one-dimensional player.

1:48:581:49:02

Obviously we know that his best is

top 20 in the world. He has the Sean

1:49:021:49:07

Lee in his own head thing, if he

placed a is best, it's going to do

1:49:071:49:11

some damage -- he has too fiercely

in his own head. It's going to do

1:49:111:49:16

some damage to beat Norrie. The way

he's playing, it actually might not

1:49:161:49:20

be, though.

1:49:201:49:25

be, though.

He tried to come in

then.

1:49:251:49:33

It's fascinating.

1:49:331:49:40

Here he comes. It is going to be in

trusting, we've seen Norrie play all

1:49:571:50:02

of his best tennis when he's been

behind in the scoreboard. -- it is

1:50:021:50:06

going to be interesting. He did a

brilliant job and really put his

1:50:061:50:10

foot on the gas. But here is another

opportunity. He doesn't want to drop

1:50:101:50:15

his intensity just because he's

ahead on the scoreboard. What must

1:50:151:50:21

this man by thinking?!

1:50:211:50:28

It's the fifth of those. He served

nine on Friday.

1:51:161:51:23

nine on Friday. First serve's in. He

has improved on it from the start of

1:51:231:51:28

the match, Norrie.

1:51:281:51:35

It's a brilliant point from both

men! Again!

1:52:031:52:13

Pretty close.

1:52:311:52:40

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Such an important point, and didn't

1:52:581:53:04

he play well?!

A massive, massive

momentum opportunity lost from 40-0

1:53:041:53:10

up in this game.

1:53:101:53:19

No smash is easy on a clay court.

1:53:221:53:26

It's just a great finish to the

game. And that smash is pretty much

1:53:311:53:36

the first one he's hit in nearly two

hours!

I know. I was thinking at

1:53:361:53:44

that 40-30 point, that great rally

from Ramos-Vinolas, classic clay

1:53:441:53:49

court point. And thinking, this guy

in your picture is the second

1:53:491:53:54

professional match on clay! I don't

think we've ever seen anyone look so

1:53:541:54:00

comfortable after such a short space

of time, it's incredible.

It is.

1:54:001:54:07

This guy was basically born on a

clay court!

I think Nadal in only

1:54:071:54:15

his ninth professional match on a

grass court made the final at

1:54:151:54:19

Wimbledon.

That is also amazing.

1:54:191:54:26

Amazing how this match is starting

to turn around.

1:55:121:55:18

The Spaniard didn't really look like

he knew what to do that. -- Blair.

1:55:251:55:33

You can't blame him.

1:55:331:55:36

So clever! Because that wasn't a

drop shot, that was very smartly

1:56:471:56:52

bringing his opponent in. Look at

the shape of that forehand. Somebody

1:56:521:56:56

used to playing on a hard court

would hit that flat. Wonderful to

1:56:561:57:01

watch. Two more break points.

1:57:011:57:12

It's four game in a row! The

tactical switch, amazing. The

1:57:171:57:22

execution, even better.

1:57:221:57:28

execution, even better. Again, we

are witnessing something pretty

1:57:281:57:30

extraordinary from Cameron Norrie.

1:57:301:57:40

Four Leon Smith, he almost has not

much to say. I mean, he's absolutely

1:57:451:57:51

in the zone. Physically, everybody's

asking, OK, he played a lot of

1:57:511:57:56

tennis on Friday, that was a brutal

set to lose. There was a little bit

1:57:561:58:00

of a Lawell for maybe five minutes

at the start of that second set, but

1:58:001:58:04

Ramos-Vinolas was unable to get a

lead. And look at him now. I mean,

1:58:041:58:09

he's... Physically is one thing, but

mentally he is absolutely looking

1:58:091:58:16

the stronger of the two players so

far, even though Ramos won that

1:58:161:58:20

first set, he is looking the more

fragile on the big points, in my

1:58:201:58:23

view.

Amazing. So much to talk

about. If you want to get involved,

1:58:231:58:35

hashtag BBC tennis. Facebook, of

course, don't forget that.

1:58:351:58:47

One hour and 48 minutes. Cameron

Norrie serving forced at number two.

1:58:491:58:56

-- for set number two.

1:58:561:58:58

You know, Chris, you're right what

you said a minute ago in terms of

2:00:122:00:16

what Ramos needs to do. If you look

at the way the match has gone,

2:00:162:00:20

although he did win the first set,

Norrie has been the better player

2:00:202:00:24

for quite some time now. If you're

thinking from 4-0 down.

2:00:242:00:29

It's not like he's having a purple

patch or a few minutes, this is well

2:00:352:00:39

over an hour when he has been the

better player.

2:00:392:00:43

He has two set points.

2:00:452:00:51

An hour and 50 minutes they all

stand together as one. Cameron

2:00:582:01:03

Norrie has levelled the match. It

1-1.

2:01:032:01:10

Just an astounding effort.

Again

after that first set everyone would

2:01:172:01:24

have been thinking the momentum was

with the higher ranked player,

2:01:242:01:28

physically what does Norrie have

left in the tank but not an issue in

2:01:282:01:33

that sector really. A bit of a lull

in the first couple of games and

2:01:332:01:39

from their Cameron Norrie taking

control I would say tactically the

2:01:392:01:43

one thing he's done is he has

probably upped his offensiveness by

2:01:432:01:49

about 10%, you have seen him come

up, it's a little subtle thing.

2:01:492:01:55

We've talked about how happy he has

been to trade, but when he's had the

2:01:552:02:02

chance to get onto a slightly

shorter ball, not necessarily coming

2:02:022:02:06

into the net every time but moving

up by a metre or so makes the

2:02:062:02:11

opponent think OK, is he coming in

or not? Is he just taking a bit of

2:02:112:02:16

time away? The one thing about

Ramos's game I noticed in the first

2:02:162:02:20

set is although he started well when

Norrie did take time away and hit a

2:02:202:02:26

slightly bigger ground stroke is

feel on the defensive shots was not

2:02:262:02:29

quite there. He was still

inconsistent. He was still hit into

2:02:292:02:33

the fence with a few forehands. From

Norrie's point of view keep doing

2:02:332:02:37

what you are doing, he must us to

feel what is going on and say is my

2:02:372:02:42

opponent going to do something

differently? Because otherwise there

2:02:422:02:45

is no need to change anything.

It'll

be interesting to hear what Sergi

2:02:452:02:54

Bruguera had to say to

Ramos-Vinolas. John Lloyd coming in

2:02:542:03:00

for the third set.

2:03:002:03:10

Good start from Ramos-Vinolas, John

Lloyd, what are your thoughts so

2:06:112:06:14

far?

Well, Cameron Norrie continues

to amaze everybody I think. Amazes

2:06:142:06:22

the Spanish team. I think the

respect, watch the players in the

2:06:222:06:28

box early on at 4-0 in the first set

they were smiling and looking out,

2:06:282:06:33

maybe he's a one match wonder but

suddenly there are faces have

2:06:332:06:37

started to change. As I think the

captains did as well as his

2:06:372:06:41

opponent. Cameron Norrie is here to

stay. That second set, what ever

2:06:412:06:49

happens in the match, was a measure

of how far he has learned. Oh he is

2:06:492:06:53

able to soak up and adapt and change

and that's a big test. It's

2:06:532:07:00

extraordinary what he's doing here.

Keep wondering if the legs will go

2:07:002:07:06

at some stage, the physicality, the

mental... The mental pressure. He's

2:07:062:07:14

not been in this position before but

so far he still fresh. He's enjoying

2:07:142:07:22

this match, he's enjoying the

challenge, he's enjoying trying to

2:07:222:07:26

find out different ways to impose

himself on his opponent. It's such a

2:07:262:07:30

pleasure because the captain cannot

do it for you. The coach can do it

2:07:302:07:35

for you. You have to do it yourself,

you can talk about it but used to

2:07:352:07:39

execute and that is what he has been

doing so well.

For a Sergi Bruguera,

2:07:392:07:46

the Spanish captain, when someone is

changing the tactics as much as

2:07:462:07:49

Norrie is what will he be saying to

his man, play your own game?

I think

2:07:492:07:55

he will. I think as good a player as

Ramos-Vinolas is, he's a bit one

2:07:552:08:01

paced. He doesn't seem to have much

plan B. Cannot come in much, or he

2:08:012:08:06

doesn't like to.

2:08:062:08:11

I'm sure he'll be telling him to

keep link. Use the drop shot a bit.

2:08:192:08:25

Impose yourself. Just been these

lapses from the Spaniard. A lot of

2:08:252:08:32

it because of the way Cameron Norrie

has played but there have been a few

2:08:322:08:36

patches, we saw that in his first

match as well. He would make

2:08:362:08:42

mistakes in bunches, a couple of

errant shots in a row, don't give

2:08:422:08:49

anything away, smother your opponent

and keep the pressure on.

2:08:492:08:55

Lee Charles there, former British

top ten player.

2:09:052:09:12

top ten player. One of the coaches

at Queen's, skiving off work!

2:09:122:09:16

Another break point, four from six

so far.

2:09:242:09:29

So well done, made it really

awkward, that volley.

That looked

2:09:452:09:50

like Cameron Norrie's point with a

very good approach point. He's

2:09:502:09:54

getting the fuel of him a little,

knowing he was going to come in the,

2:09:542:09:58

which was the right tactic,

excellent chipped back and made the

2:09:582:10:03

volley very difficult indeed.

Leaving think break-up now, but you

2:10:032:10:09

still don't feel that in this match.

Neither of the servers are big

2:10:092:10:13

weapons which is the one thing,

you're going to get hits on Oliver

2:10:132:10:18

serves almost all of the time.

2:10:182:10:21

Has already been 11 breaks of serve

in the match.

Exactly, you don't see

2:10:272:10:32

that often in men's tennis.

2:10:322:10:39

That shot on the last point, the

Spanish crowd walk up after the

2:11:192:11:25

first day, it's like the expected

this to be an easy match, on the

2:11:252:11:29

first day it did not sound like we

were in Spain at all. But now from

2:11:292:11:33

the doubles yesterday and today we

have got a real atmosphere.

2:11:332:11:41

Just gone off the boil here are

Norrie, for the first time in some

2:12:062:12:10

time.

2:12:102:12:11

Big come on from the Brit. Trying to

drag himself back to full focus.

2:12:292:12:42

Commanding lead, third set.

It's

extraordinary how the matches so

2:13:092:13:17

topsy-turvy, you get a period of

play where Norrie is dominating. It

2:13:172:13:21

looks like the ball is coming faster

off his racket, taking time away

2:13:212:13:27

from his opponent then it flips the

other way. Now it feels like

2:13:272:13:34

Ramos-Vinolas is now dominating more

with the speed of shocked. Maybe

2:13:342:13:40

Norrie 's legs, the sharpness, just

a split second late on ball, making

2:13:402:13:45

a few mistakes. Can he rebound?

Normally would say no, someone with

2:13:452:13:51

the experience he has not had.

He

has gone into his seventh hour this

2:13:512:13:57

weekend.

Exactly. Going to places he

has never been to. But he seems to

2:13:572:14:03

have such resilience. I'm still not

going to count him out yet. Still a

2:14:032:14:05

long way to go.

2:14:052:14:14

8000 seater. Fully engaged.

As they

should be, what a match this is.

2:14:212:14:32

Noreen needs the whole year.

2:14:322:14:42

You tend to hear things, lose your

focus and other things filter in.

2:14:462:14:57

When you're in the zone and the ball

is coming off your bracket

2:14:572:15:00

beautifully you don't hear anything.

2:15:002:15:07

Leon Smith sensing he needs an

energy boost, to get charged up

2:15:512:15:59

again. He's gone a bit flat, Norrie.

2:15:592:16:08

Still got the confidence to do that.

2:16:202:16:21

I cannot remember a bad volley he

has hit in this tie. I'm not saying

2:16:282:16:31

he has won every point when he's

come in but his technique looks

2:16:312:16:36

good.

2:16:362:16:46

That was sort of sloppy, caught off

balance.

2:16:472:16:53

balance.

We are almost where we were

back at the start of the first set.

2:16:552:17:04

Just his second ace.

2:17:102:17:12

That's a good hold isn't it? Two

excellent service, a couple of

2:18:152:18:20

sloppy shots in that game but once

again he finds away.

Before that

2:18:202:18:25

point, the way he looked around and

took a huge deep breath, just

2:18:252:18:30

gathering himself.

2:18:302:18:34

You would think he would want to

stand still for a minute!

2:18:482:18:56

New balls.

2:19:052:19:06

Shorter on that return. Telling

himself to go forwards.

2:19:312:19:39

himself to go forwards. Surrendering

a bit too much of the court at the

2:19:392:19:41

moment.

2:19:412:19:44

So good.

2:20:412:20:48

25 winners to 16 for Norrie.

2:21:002:21:09

Two chances to get the break back.

Two forehands in this game that he

2:21:252:21:31

has sort of snatched the ball.

Almost at the comfort of a double

2:21:312:21:39

break but he didn't, very slender,

the way he serves he doesn't get

2:21:392:21:44

many free points and now he's back

in trouble again.

2:21:442:21:51

Set up nicely there as well. Had a

chance to take charge of the

2:22:472:22:54

forehand. Just pulled off it a

little bit. Is there an element of

2:22:542:22:57

doubt because of how Ramos-Vinolas

has made him had tough volleys when

2:22:572:23:03

he comes in?

Possibly, just didn't

quite get his balance right.

2:23:032:23:06

Got it!

Great anticipation. Wrong

shot from the Spaniard.

2:23:192:23:35

Still have to anticipate that, got

to take fairly, that is what Norrie

2:23:352:23:40

did. Excellent work.

2:23:402:23:46

Amazing.

Back on serve, third set.

2:24:092:24:20

There is no doubt he has been

battling himself and his focus,

2:24:202:24:26

Norrie, but somehow still manages to

drag himself back in.

So many of

2:24:262:24:31

these battles he has had to fight

against in this match. A bad opening

2:24:312:24:39

start where he was down, he could

have doubted himself there but he

2:24:392:24:44

didn't, he came back. Got through

the second set and the third set the

2:24:442:24:50

same situation. Looking a bit

fatigued. Looking like his opponent

2:24:502:24:54

was going to run away with the set

and it comes back again. It

2:24:542:25:00

surprises everybody I think, maybe

even himself. I don't know. He seems

2:25:002:25:04

very confident.

Looking at the

benches we've not seen a lot of the

2:25:042:25:10

players there for a while which is a

point you made to me coming back

2:25:102:25:13

into the commentary box.

We are all

in the locker room at the moment!

2:25:132:25:19

Double bluff.

2:25:192:25:24

Double bluff. Broady, Edmund. Let's

get to this match first.

2:25:282:25:39

Back on serve in the third set.

2:25:442:25:55

He has ring to the mark, saying that

shot was long, does he agree? He

2:26:342:26:38

does.

2:26:382:26:43

Wants to know by how much.

2:26:492:26:55

May be looking for the out: there.

Just clipped the line didn't it? Who

2:27:222:27:30

would be a captain?

CHUCKLES

2:27:302:27:33

Really well done. So cool now.

2:27:562:28:02

Norrie read both of those passing

shots. Unfortunately it sets up.

2:28:052:28:18

Terrific.

It really is.

2:28:342:28:41

Some of the chances he is missed. He

was so far out. Past the tramlines.

2:28:452:28:58

Boy did he built that one away for

break point.

2:28:582:29:02

Finding his first serve when he

really needs it. Another really good

2:29:422:29:47

sign. Good 60% first serves and it

was barely 40% at the start.

2:29:472:30:02

The best player on the court

yesterday in the doubles, Feliciano

2:30:292:30:33

Lopez.

He was so good.

2:30:332:30:36

A few chances in that rally with a

forehand to open up the court.

2:30:582:31:05

Wimbledon champion last year. Their

future is bright.

2:31:052:31:10

The 13th break of serve in the

match, the sixth for Albert

2:31:422:31:46

Ramos-Vinolas. He is ahead again.

Just slapped at a few forehands. It

2:31:462:31:54

was like he wanted to end the

pointer bit quicker. I don't know if

2:31:542:31:58

that is a sign of fatigue. Not

pulling the trigger on the right

2:31:582:32:04

shots. Just going for it a little

bit too much in the rally earlier

2:32:042:32:08

on.

When he first changed the

tactic, Cameron Norrie, you would

2:32:082:32:13

have come in on the second of those

forehands. He is definitely weary

2:32:132:32:17

now, isn't he?

It seems like that.

He seems to get this second wind

2:32:172:32:25

when he just moves better than ever.

But he is looking a little bit

2:32:252:32:29

tired, no doubt about it.

2:32:292:32:31

If that is right, in this third set,

match that Great Britain has got to

2:32:512:32:55

win of course, this third set is

crucial.

You would think so, by all

2:32:552:32:59

logic, but there has not been much

logic!

2:32:592:33:08

He has broken seven times, Norrie.

2:33:162:33:24

Errors now. Piling up.

2:33:462:33:52

Just calm it down, just a little

bit. Don't get negative, you have

2:33:552:34:01

still got to be aggressive, but just

pulling the trigger a little bit too

2:34:012:34:05

early.

2:34:052:34:11

The winners are 26-17 to the Brit.

2:34:392:34:47

How did he win that point?

That

could be massive.

2:35:202:35:29

could be massive.

Staring at two

break points down there. That

2:35:292:35:32

tremendous

2:35:322:35:38

tremendous lob got him out of

trouble. No right to win that point,

2:35:382:35:42

really.

2:35:422:35:49

The animated people behind!

2:35:532:36:01

So good. These are two huge points

now. He has played two amazing

2:36:222:36:32

points, hasn't he?

2:36:322:36:41

It has got to be the way, hasn't it?

If he gets past, two tougher

2:37:202:37:25

volleys, then too good.

That ball,

he took it on, but you can only

2:37:252:37:33

attack when the ball is in a certain

area and he has been pushed back

2:37:332:37:36

pretty deep in the last few games.

2:37:362:37:41

Close, very close. There are lots of

marks there now. I think it has been

2:38:082:38:19

conceded by Ramos-Vinolas. This

point will be replayed.

2:38:192:38:25

Nicely done. I thought the ball was

wide in that rally. But it was

2:39:062:39:10

called good. A well

2:39:102:39:18

called good. A well worked point

from Vinolas. You don't see him

2:39:182:39:19

coming to the net too often but that

was a good one to attack on, a solid

2:39:192:39:24

volley.

2:39:242:39:26

What was that?

A bad bounce? It

wasn't that bad, was it?

I didn't

2:39:422:39:54

think so either!

Perhaps different

options and he picked the wrong one?

2:39:542:40:01

Not the time. Not the time for poor

points in a row.

His seventh double

2:40:342:40:43

fault. Another lifeline.

2:40:432:40:48

It is wide! Norrie has broken again!

Incredible. He has got this in

2:41:282:41:39

eighth ability to put almost, it

seems, anything and everything

2:41:392:41:45

behind him. The easiest thing to say

in the world, one point at a time,

2:41:452:41:49

and Rafa talks about that endlessly

even on this surface, but it implies

2:41:492:41:54

that. What happened in that one

game?

It was a huge game. It is huge

2:41:542:41:59

but you have got to give Norrie huge

credit here, fantastic. But

2:41:592:42:05

reversing it, to Vinolas, he then

had a chance. Someone of his

2:42:052:42:12

ranking, normally when they get a

player on the ropes, that is when

2:42:122:42:16

they close. Whenever you seems to

get into a winning position, he

2:42:162:42:20

blinks and hesitates. He served a

double fault and he missed an easy

2:42:202:42:23

forehand. That is what this is those

uprising. I am sure that is what the

2:42:232:42:29

Spanish captain must be thinking.

You have got this man on the ropes

2:42:292:42:33

and you have got too close and you

are not doing it. All credit to the

2:42:332:42:36

Brit, obviously, and it is amazing

the way he keeps fighting back, but

2:42:362:42:40

for a player of his ability, Vinolas

has just not played well when he has

2:42:402:42:45

been up. It is almost like he needs

a double break for security every

2:42:452:42:49

time. Every time he gets up a break,

you don't think the set is over. We

2:42:492:42:54

talk about locker room respect, and

what Norrie achieved on Friday must

2:42:542:42:59

be in the Spaniard's had going

forwards.

It must be.

2:42:592:43:06

forwards.

It must be.

Norrie must

think nothing can hurt me and I can

2:43:072:43:10

come back whenever I need to. His

faith in himself is extraordinary.

2:43:102:43:15

It is not logical what he is doing.

It continues. 3-4, third set.

This

2:43:152:43:24

is a fascinating set.

2:43:242:43:31

It wasn't the best approach shot

there. Got away with it.

2:43:432:43:57

Oh! I thought when that lob went

over that it was the end of the

2:44:342:44:45

point. 30-15. So did the captain. He

thought this point was in the bag.

2:44:452:44:52

He jumped too soon and he hit the

ball late. It got behind him.

2:44:522:44:57

He worked for it so hard, the right

ball to come in offer well

2:45:342:45:40

constructed point.

2:45:402:45:50

-- off a well constructive point.

2:45:532:46:01

What do time for that! Swinging

away, just clipped the edge of the

2:46:022:46:09

line. A bonus.

2:46:092:46:17

Again, totally dominated by Norrie.

He was down 15-30 and he played two

2:46:402:46:45

sloppy boys in a row, and we thought

he had got sloppy and he would lose

2:46:452:46:49

the break. Then he just bounces

back. He has done this so often in

2:46:492:46:56

the two matches that he has played.

It is staggering.

He just refuses to

2:46:562:47:03

stand still.

Just a constant

process.

2:47:032:47:14

Pressure back to the Spaniard.

2:47:172:47:19

Two forehand errors in a row. Huge

point coming up here.

2:49:242:49:35

That was a pity. A good length

serve.

2:50:042:50:12

With the errors so far, they are

both feeling it.

Again you would

2:51:162:51:24

think the Spaniard would play with

the wins that he has had... But this

2:51:242:51:28

is Davis Cup different type of

tension.

2:51:282:51:35

Another very makeable return. This

game has been pretty poor from both

2:51:472:51:53

players.

2:51:532:52:02

I think he has just dragged it wide.

He has.

Norrie thought he had made

2:52:302:52:35

it when he hit it.

5-4, Spain.

2:52:352:52:43

it when he hit it.

5-4, Spain. A

relieved captain there. That was a

2:52:432:52:45

shaky game at times but he got the

job done somehow.

2:52:452:52:56

It is a gruelling match.

He will

need some more of that stuff,

2:53:162:53:24

whatever it is.

He is hard at work

again, Sergei Bruguera. He doesn't

2:53:242:53:34

give his player time to have a

drink!

2:53:342:53:41

drink!

What, no drink?

I wonder how

much Vinolas is listening or taking

2:53:412:53:48

in.

He is making a response now. OK.

2:53:482:53:55

We have seen a player blossom this

weekend in Cameron Norrie,

2:54:052:54:09

absolutely no doubt about it. What a

performance. Incredible. And serving

2:54:092:54:14

to stay in set three.

2:54:142:54:16

I didn't tell you to do that,

forehand out and the return. On the

2:54:362:54:40

line.

2:54:402:54:50

I can't believe he won that point.

How did that go in?

I don't know.

2:55:102:55:19

Those shot. This one. -- bizarre

shot.

2:55:192:55:33

That is impressive. Love hold.

4-5.

I thought that was going to be a

2:55:582:56:06

long, tight game and he won easily.

He just marches around the court.

2:56:062:56:14

Such a tempo.

Fantastic game. Now

the pressure switches big time.

2:56:142:56:24

He must be dizzy, walking round in

circles. Wondering how he is keeping

2:56:292:56:34

ongoing. He has never done this

before, not even remotely!

2:56:342:56:42

before, not even remotely! He has

done it in his mind, I guess. He has

2:56:422:56:46

visualised this occasion. Shaking

hands as the winner.

2:56:462:56:51

He has got him!

This is ridiculous.

2:57:132:57:24

That lob comes up and you think Boyd

over, but he doesn't think so. He is

2:57:242:57:30

getting the crowd going now. We are

playing away, by the way! Look at

2:57:302:57:34

the faces. People can't believe it.

I think the neutrals and even some

2:57:342:57:39

of the Spanish supporters are

admiring him for what he is doing.

2:57:392:57:43

How on earth did he win that point?

2:57:432:57:51

What a pity that was. So much time

on that one. There was no speed on

2:58:392:58:47

that serve whatsoever. Too many

options.

2:58:472:58:53

Fourth place.

2:59:152:59:25

-- fourth ace.

2:59:272:59:36

I thought for a second that was

going out. A lot of top-spin on it.

2:59:542:59:58

It's dropped quickly inside the

baseline.

2:59:583:00:04

Spain hold.

3:00:323:00:38

What a match this is turning out to

be, we were keen to come off air on

3:00:393:00:44

BBC Two but we are staying with it,

so for now we are staying alive to

3:00:443:00:49

continue enjoying this tussle.

3:00:493:01:00

COMMENTATOR:

It is extraordinary, I

have never seen a captain and player

3:01:063:01:10

talk this much between games.

Were

other times when your captain that

3:01:103:01:15

you thought you would wait and see

if your player said anything?

It

3:01:153:01:20

would depend on who the player was.

The younger players, you feel like

3:01:203:01:24

you need to engage them almost all

the time because they don't have the

3:01:243:01:29

experience. But the likes of Andy

Murray and Tim Henman, you don't

3:01:293:01:32

have to say much. Greg is its key

would say it for himself, he did not

3:01:323:01:38

had to say much to him! It's the

difference. But Sergi Bruguera, he

3:01:383:01:46

finds the way to go about it is to

talk to both of his players who are

3:01:463:01:51

opening top 20 and he keeps on

saying stuff. Different styles I

3:01:513:01:56

suppose.

3:01:563:02:01

suppose.

They are Spain without Rafa

Nadal. We are Great Britain without

3:02:043:02:08

Andy Murray. We talked about the

greater depth in Spanish tennis but

3:02:083:02:13

he is still an experienced himself

and he has a chance to take Spain to

3:02:133:02:16

the quarterfinals. Getting over the

line is not going to be easy.

3:02:163:02:22

He was overall bit defence there I

thought, the Spaniard. Short

3:02:383:02:43

forehand. Did not do much on the

passing shot attempt.

3:02:433:02:57

That is nine points in a row from

Norrie.

3:03:043:03:10

Missed it. That almost went in slow

motion, the end of that point. Hit

3:03:393:03:45

the line didn't it?

I thought so,

but there is a mark there.

New

3:03:453:03:52

cannot challenge now, even get me to

look at it. He's not going to move

3:03:523:03:58

from his seat.

3:03:583:04:06

The referee...

You how to stop it,

if it is out it is out.

He is saying

3:04:113:04:22

he had to look down, he was

preparing to hit the shots. But 40-0

3:04:223:04:26

it is.

3:04:263:04:34

Another love hold. Hasn't lost a

point on serve since been 15-30 down

3:04:573:05:04

and 3-4. We have another tie-break.

Remarkable.

As if there was not

3:05:043:05:11

enough drama.

You would normally see

in this situation that Cameron

3:05:113:05:17

Norrie has to win this third set

just because of the logic of the

3:05:173:05:21

five sets but there is no logic with

Cameron Norrie.

East Alex Price

3:05:213:05:28

doesn't he?

Obviously it's a crucial

tie-break but whoever wins it, you

3:05:283:05:34

don't feel like it's the end of the

match by any means.

3:05:343:05:43

Brilliant.

3:05:553:06:04

Cannot fault Cameron Norrie on this

point. That was just too good.

3:06:103:06:18

So good. So precise.

He read that

drop volley very quickly.

3:06:423:06:51

This one, he was already moving. Not

easy. Low ball, passing from that

3:06:553:07:08

position, considering how important

that point was. Superb.

3:07:083:07:18

that point was. Superb.

Went 2-1 up

in the first set in the break then

3:07:183:07:22

lost three points in a row.

3:07:223:07:30

Just got his feet tangled.

3:08:153:08:20

Quite a few mounds of clay, a few

dodgy bounces at the back end of

3:08:303:08:34

such a long set.

3:08:343:08:44

He's done it. It's like these

mini-breaks mean nothing.

3:09:113:09:29

INAUDIBLE

3:09:363:09:45

Was it out? Was it out? It is all

kicking off year! I don't know what

3:10:253:10:33

Sergi Bruguera problem was, Cameron

Norrie just wanted to get on with

3:10:333:10:38

it. It's in!

It's good!

BOOING

Have to replay the point.

3:10:383:10:54

Have to replay the point.

The umpire

overruled call. It's his fault.

As

3:10:553:11:02

if there wasn't enough to contend

with.

3:11:023:11:08

Gone into a fourth hour. First serve

again.

3:11:123:11:24

What a point. What a point from both

players. This is fantastic tennis.

3:12:013:12:11

Ramos-Vinolas, the way he improvised

with the backhand slice, to get that

3:12:143:12:18

ball down. He has dealt with Norrie

coming forward with outstandingly

3:12:183:12:26

well. Had to hit that hard, if you

have thwarted that at all, it's all

3:12:263:12:32

going off now. Can you send somebody

to the standing tennis?

Tensions are

3:12:323:12:38

very high. It means so much.

Fantastic atmosphere, I love this.

3:12:383:12:45

He's got to come back for the

umpteenth time, Norrie.

3:12:453:12:55

Would you be surprised if he did?

No.

3:12:563:13:03

No.

He thought he was going to have

an easy job this weekend!

3:13:033:13:10

What a return of serve he had there

as well. That is what he plays the

3:13:313:13:40

points for, to get himself set up to

finish with a forehand. That is

3:13:403:13:43

tension.

3:13:433:13:48

His demeanour is so good. He just

looks so calm.

3:13:593:14:10

One double length, dealing with

that, not easy.

He made it look easy

3:15:113:15:17

and it was not. At 4-4 in the

tie-breaker, low ball like that,

3:15:173:15:23

hitting it two inches from the

baseline. It's a privilege to watch

3:15:233:15:30

this match. The drama, it is

incredible.

3:15:303:15:39

He has got a dilemma, do I go in or

not?

First shot he had a chance to

3:16:143:16:20

go in and he hesitated.

3:16:203:16:26

go in and he hesitated.

A pat on the

back for Ramos-Vinolas for that.

He

3:16:263:16:31

was not going to miss that.

Two set

points.

3:16:313:16:42

Spain are one sick away from the

quarterfinals of the Davis Cup.

3:17:073:17:12

Ramos-Vinolas wins his second

tie-break of the match. Spain lead

3:17:123:17:17

2-1. STUDIO: This is the first

singles match on this final day of

3:17:173:17:23

this tie in Spain. We were just

wondering who would play the last

3:17:233:17:30

match, it may be irrelevant if Spain

can get one more set but what a

3:17:303:17:35

fight this is, what an incredible

match both players are playing.

3:17:353:17:38

Looks like they may be leaving the

court which might give us some time

3:17:383:17:42

but that is the match as it stands.

Still all to play for in this match

3:17:423:17:47

and if I can talk to the guys in the

commentary box first of all about

3:17:473:17:51

this guy, he is under such extreme

pressure playing a player ranked a

3:17:513:17:56

in the world, and inspired opponent

and he held his nerve well on the

3:17:563:18:00

crucial points.

What an incredible

third set, the tie-breaker. I am

3:18:003:18:05

just amazed by Cameron Norrie, how

well he has played. You have to give

3:18:053:18:14

credit to Ramos-Vinolas, there were

times he would so tight but somehow

3:18:143:18:18

he got through. What is set. Now can

Cameron Norrie come back again?

3:18:183:18:24

Normally would say no chance, he is

done, with the lack of experience he

3:18:243:18:29

has, but he still looks fresh. Every

time he is surprising, every set,

3:18:293:18:35

you still think he's in the match.

Extraordinary.

It is wonderful to

3:18:353:18:40

sit here and applaud the pride and

passion and spirit he plays in these

3:18:403:18:44

matches, everything you want.

Look

at many times he has changed the way

3:18:443:18:50

he's played in the match tactically,

when he's been in trouble, he has

3:18:503:18:53

altered it. It is not one paced. You

think for the future, how far can

3:18:533:18:59

you go up the rankings? Will this be

his favourite surface? Can he play

3:18:593:19:07

like this and other services? He can

at lower levels but now you look at

3:19:073:19:11

him and think where can he go? I

think he can go very high. This is a

3:19:113:19:15

man who knows what he wants and

believes in himself and there is

3:19:153:19:19

variety in his game. It is not in

any way one paced. If he can improve

3:19:193:19:24

his serve a little bit and make it

more of a weapon why not? He can go

3:19:243:19:29

all the way.

Talking of weapons, he

can do anything with the forehand

3:19:293:19:36

and the wide forehand he gets angles

people cannot get.

Exactly. We

3:19:363:19:40

forget about his backhand because

his forehand is so good. But some

3:19:403:19:44

tremendous backhand is particularly

down the line. This short backswing

3:19:443:19:49

he has. Tactically he's been so

good, good to drop shot. And the

3:19:493:19:54

volley has been excellent. He's not

come in the net all the time, but

3:19:543:19:57

when he has I think he's been

immaculate in that area as well. He

3:19:573:20:03

is quick and physically what a

specimen he is. First Davis Cup

3:20:033:20:08

match, played a four our match, he

is now into the fourth hour and

3:20:083:20:11

still looks fresh. It's the best

Davis Cup debut I've ever seen in a

3:20:113:20:18

tie.

And he is not out of this. The

points system in tennis is

3:20:183:20:25

brilliant. There cannot be many

points between these players, just a

3:20:253:20:29

couple towards the end of the

tie-break but he's right in this

3:20:293:20:32

match.

Certainly, you could see the

relief on the face of Sergi Bruguera

3:20:323:20:38

when he won the point because that

third was beyond belief. He knows

3:20:383:20:44

his player is tight and he had to

get over the line at 2-1, now he's

3:20:443:20:49

got a little breathing space but you

can see how animated he still is.

3:20:493:20:52

He's going to get himself in trouble

if he is not careful here.

We will

3:20:523:20:58

hand back to say we are staying with

the tennis here on BBC Two so sit

3:20:583:21:02

back and enjoy this one with us.

COMMENTATOR: And to think Cameron

3:21:023:21:12

Norrie only started concentrating on

playing tennis at the age of 15.

3:21:123:21:18

Just making his point very firmly,

Sergi Bruguera.

3:21:183:21:30

Sergi Bruguera. Jamie Baker has come

in for the fourth set, amazing what

3:21:303:21:34

we are seeing, whatever next. Can

Cameron Norrie keep going?

Why not.

3:21:343:21:43

The evidence we have seen over the

last few matches he's played suggest

3:21:433:21:47

he's not going to go away. Mentally

he's not going anywhere. Unless his

3:21:473:21:56

body packs up and he hits the wall

he will be right back in this match.

3:21:563:22:00

Tactically? It's a bit of a dilemma

how much to go in, whether he can go

3:22:143:22:20

in because the Spaniard has dealt

with it brilliantly of late.

Yes

3:22:203:22:24

that tactic worked well in the last

match and has worked well in this

3:22:243:22:28

match as well but as you rightly

say, Ramos-Vinolas has come up with

3:22:283:22:30

a bit of an answer to it recently.

3:22:303:22:37

I thought Ramos-Vinolas should all

of his experience in the

3:22:483:22:54

tie-breaker, he locked down and said

I'm not going to miss the court. Not

3:22:543:22:58

trying to do too much with the ball

so you did not see any of those wild

3:22:583:23:02

forehand is we have seen at

different times in the match. He

3:23:023:23:05

just did not make a mistake in the

tie-break. Now serve and volley. He

3:23:053:23:13

has the answer for. First time I

have seen him smile. In the match.

3:23:133:23:25

That is just stunning. No angle.

That return was bang up the middle

3:23:443:23:49

of the court.

3:23:493:23:54

Early break third set.

Ramos-Vinolas

searching for it again.

3:24:293:24:42

I will just go back to hitting

winners from the baseline then!

You

3:24:573:25:03

have to be very relaxed to be able

to unleash shots like that. Very

3:25:033:25:09

impressive.

3:25:093:25:18

Beautifully timed.

The Spaniard

noticed Cameron Norrie was stuck a

3:25:493:25:58

little bit further behind the

baseline and he normally has been.

3:25:583:26:03

Add to cover a lot of ground to get

to that ball.

3:26:033:26:08

That's another one which finds the

line. How cool was that?

That ball

3:26:563:27:09

looked out, every single way, until

it bounced.

Ramos cannot believe it.

3:27:093:27:14

Must have been outside of the line.

3:27:143:27:23

Not one sign yet, no wonder the

smile again, that Norrie is

3:27:443:27:48

struggling physically. We now he

backs himself physically but did he

3:27:483:27:52

think he could back himself this

much?

3:27:523:28:01

Third break point in the game.

3:28:423:28:50

It is wide. Spain get the early

break in the fourth set.

3:29:003:29:13

break in the fourth set.

Definitely

not the ideal start for Cameron

3:29:133:29:16

Norrie however it's happened in the

first set. And the third set. Did

3:29:163:29:24

not have a massive bearing on how

those sets ended up. How many times

3:29:243:29:31

can you keep coming back and keep

digging in and finding something a

3:29:313:29:36

bit extra?

3:29:363:29:38

Straight round, Norrie. No chat with

Lee Smith. -- Leon Smith.

3:29:453:30:00

We are staying alive with the tennis

on BBC Two.

3:30:323:30:40

on BBC Two. -- staying live.

3:30:403:30:46

There is a calmness about Vinolas

right now which is worrying from the

3:31:003:31:07

British perspective.

3:31:073:31:17

Is he holding his leg? Stunning.

Free-flowing now, Ramos-Vinolas.

3:31:193:31:30

Love hold to back up the break. ET

finally breaking the Norrie

3:31:583:32:09

resistance? He wants the crowd to

add their weight. Sensing the moment

3:32:093:32:15

here.

3:32:153:32:17

It has taken three hours and 22

minutes.

3:32:263:32:31

I suppose that is the one piece of

criticism that you could throw at

3:33:023:33:08

Ramos-Vinolas. As brilliant as

Norrie has been, he has had the

3:33:083:33:13

opportunities, really in every

single set, to really hammer home

3:33:133:33:17

the lead. For whatever reason,

whether it is because Norrie is

3:33:173:33:21

playing well or lost points from

him, he hasn't managed to do that.

3:33:213:33:29

The last eight points,

Ramos-Vinolas.

3:33:293:33:37

We have learned to say never say

never with Norrie but surely this is

3:33:443:33:48

a must win service game.

3:33:483:33:58

He is really going for it now.

The

racket head speed on that backhand

3:34:073:34:17

in that game, we haven't seen that

on the backhand side in the whole

3:34:173:34:22

match. The sign of a confidence that

he has got in his leads now.

3:34:223:34:34

he has got in his leads now.

If he

can withstand this,

3:34:343:34:43

can withstand this, Norrie, then...

3:34:433:34:51

Applauded by Ramos-Vinolas and

rightly so.

3:34:583:35:04

There was some extra meat on those

forehands by Ramos-Vinolas as well.

3:35:083:35:12

He did so well to state in that

point let alone hit the winner at

3:35:123:35:16

the end of it.

3:35:163:35:22

Just a fantastic hold. His opponent

threw everything at him.

3:35:223:35:41

That could unsettle you. He has been

broken a number of times in the

3:35:433:35:47

match. We have talked about that.

All the breaks we have had in this

3:35:473:35:52

match, one break is absolutely

nothing, is it? He was definitely

3:35:523:35:58

getting a hint of the knockout punch

in that game, Norrie. A fantastic

3:35:583:36:06

hold and some great tennis in there.

3:36:063:36:10

He has had so much to say! Trying to

get his man over the line.

Talking

3:36:223:36:28

about his left hand and he doesn't

even play left-handed!

A wonderful

3:36:283:36:37

venue and atmosphere. It has been

quite chilly but everybody warmed up

3:36:373:36:40

by the efforts.

3:36:403:36:49

by the efforts. 2-1 insects and

games, -- in sets and games,

3:36:493:36:59

Ramos-Vinolas trying to secure the

win for Spain.

3:36:593:37:04

He has had a lot of success stepping

in and making Ramos-Vinolas feel

3:38:023:38:08

like his second serve is not doing

enough and just overcooking that

3:38:083:38:11

one.

3:38:113:38:18

Two love service game is in a row.

Tightening the screw.

3:38:553:39:10

Two dead rubbers. He lost two live

rubbers in his Davis Cup career.

3:39:103:39:16

Huge moment for Ramos-Vinolas.

3:39:163:39:26

He would love the double break.

3:39:343:39:44

That higher, heavy forehand to

Ramos-Vinolas's backhand worked well

3:40:493:40:58

again, but probably not the right

shot for Norrie to attack. The ball

3:40:583:41:02

was a little bit deeper.

3:41:023:41:09

Two insurance points for Spain.

3:41:153:41:26

He has got it! Impossible for Norrie

to have given more. How much does he

3:41:363:41:46

have left? This comeback would be

the comeback of all comebacks. 4-1

3:41:463:41:52

down. Double break, fourth set.

Yes,

it is hard to see any way back from

3:41:523:41:59

here, really. I think Ramos-Vinolas

hasn't done much differently in this

3:41:593:42:06

set. He has just maintained his

level, as we thought he would do. It

3:42:063:42:13

feels like Norrie's intensity just

dropped slightly. I am sure

3:42:133:42:18

physically he is feeling it

slightly, but I think probably the

3:42:183:42:21

mental strain of being in this

position for the first time and

3:42:213:42:28

having done what he did on Friday,

it is absolutely normal. And it only

3:42:283:42:32

takes a few percent to drop, and he

makes a couple of errors, and that

3:42:323:42:35

makes the difference.

In a way, he

will still make the headlines.

3:42:353:42:43

Everything we have seen from him

this weekend. We are going to see an

3:42:433:42:49

awful lot more of Cameron Norrie in

the future as well.

When we saw that

3:42:493:42:54

he was making his debut this

weekend, nobody could have imagined

3:42:543:42:59

the quality of his tennis,

forgetting about the heart of the

3:42:593:43:04

Davis Cup. The quality of his tennis

has been unbelievably exciting for

3:43:043:43:08

what might be coming in the future

from him.

3:43:083:43:16

And in this match.

3:43:173:43:23

Playing with total freedom now. It

has taken so long to get to this

3:44:293:44:32

stage. He is very, very impressive

here now.

3:44:323:44:41

Not sure if this serve-volley is go

to tactic for Ramos-Vinolas.

Is that

3:45:053:45:14

a sign of overconfidence?

Maybe

brain freeze.

3:45:143:45:17

How many times have we seen him use

that play over the last few matches?

3:46:343:46:40

He really has come forward so well.

3:46:403:46:42

Still keeps coming.

Sticking to his

game plan, doing all the right

3:48:543:49:00

things.

How proud he must be.

3:49:003:49:06

That is just fabulous.

He has hit a

couple of those backhand slices

3:49:213:49:30

which have just been absolutely

knifed down the line, over the net

3:49:303:49:36

from a very defensive position. Very

hard for the net player to do

3:49:363:49:42

anything with that.

3:49:423:49:50

Still saying come on!

3:49:543:49:59

He asks this serve it out question

over Ramos-Vinolas.

So good!

It is

3:50:123:50:25

so good.

3:50:253:50:30

so good.

It would have been very

easy for that to drift away in that

3:50:303:50:34

game. I have said before that his

intensity probably dropped a little,

3:50:343:50:38

but he has kept on going. Coming

forward again. Three out of the four

3:50:383:50:44

points that he won in that game have

been at the net and that tactic has

3:50:443:50:49

worked really well.

3:50:493:50:55

Four hours and one minute. His debut

on Friday. A phenomenal comeback win

3:50:593:51:08

from two sets down against a

world-class player on a surface he

3:51:083:51:12

grew up on. Cameron Norrie has grown

into play this weekend. Quite

3:51:123:51:22

literally. -- grown into

3:51:223:51:28

clay. How much left?

3:51:363:51:41

Serving for the tie, Ramos-Vinolas,

after three hours and 41 minutes.

3:51:543:52:03

What a great position to be in as a

Spanish player. High pressure

3:52:523:52:57

situation like this. Looking across

your bench and having a reassuring

3:52:573:53:01

nod from so many world-class players

who have been there, done that, you

3:53:013:53:06

respect them, they are run your

side. It must feel great.

3:53:063:53:15

Only last two points on serve this

set. -- only lost two points.

3:53:263:53:40

set. -- only lost two points. Third

tie for Spain.

3:53:403:53:42

He holds to love to secure the tie

win. What a proud moment for Albert

3:53:573:54:01

Ramos-Vinolas. For the first time he

has led his country to win. They are

3:54:013:54:11

through to the quarterfinals. For

Cameron Norrie, such pride for his

3:54:113:54:15

efforts as well. In the end, it just

wasn't enough today.

3:54:153:54:23

wasn't enough today. A magnificent

match. A magnificent effort from

3:54:243:54:26

both men.

3:54:263:54:31

Thanks to Chris. As Ramos-Vinolas

celebrates and Norrie goes around

3:54:503:54:54

the team, everybody is patting him

on the back. John Lloyd, it has been

3:54:543:54:58

a terrific effort from Norrie but

Ramos-Vinolas kept his nerve on the

3:54:583:55:03

big points and that is not the big

players do.

Just outside the top 20.

3:55:033:55:08

He has been there, done it and

played in the big event and he came

3:55:083:55:11

through when he needed to. That

tie-breaker in the third was the

3:55:113:55:15

crucial period. He stepped up his

game right when he needed to. It was

3:55:153:55:20

a tremendous match. Cameron Norrie,

what a performance. His performance

3:55:203:55:26

today was brilliant as well. To go

up against a world-class players

3:55:263:55:29

like he has done with no experience,

and just to embrace this occasion

3:55:293:55:34

like he has in the Davis Cup, it is

quite extraordinary. We have another

3:55:343:55:42

player coming up now who will be

tremendous. And what a back up, if

3:55:423:55:45

he is going to be a backer, at some

stage you knows what he can be? He

3:55:453:55:50

just makes the Davis Cup team so

much stronger. Why can't he played

3:55:503:55:56

very good singles on any surface?

Following his progress over the past

3:55:563:56:00

few years, you will know he is

coming up, and exciting talent. I

3:56:003:56:05

never imagined he would come out and

play like that on his Davis Cup

3:56:053:56:10

debut, never playing on clay courts

in a professional tournament before,

3:56:103:56:14

and just to come out on such a big

occasion with pressure on his

3:56:143:56:19

shoulders, it just bodes well for

the future.

It does. He loves the

3:56:193:56:22

big occasion and there is nothing

bigger than what he has just played.

3:56:223:56:26

Davis Cup, your debut, to go out and

not be timid, to go for it, the

3:56:263:56:31

strength and physicality he had in

that first match, to come back and

3:56:313:56:35

beat a world-class player as he did,

and almost win this match. This

3:56:353:56:38

match was close, and it could have

gone

3:56:383:56:50

either way.

A staggering performance

and one of the most impressive

3:56:523:56:54

debuts of all time. Absolutely. That

is the result. Spain go through to

3:56:543:56:57

face Germany in the quarterfinals.

Such a good effort from both single

3:56:573:56:59

players. Liam Broady played

extremely well in the opening match.

3:56:593:57:01

Wonderful from Norrie. It all bodes

well for the future. Kyle Edmund

3:57:013:57:04

will come back and Andy Murray will

be fit again and Dan Evans could be

3:57:043:57:08

back in the team as well. It is

looking good.

I would say so. If he

3:57:083:57:12

can get the full team out, what the

team. If he can get Andy Murray and

3:57:123:57:17

Kyle Edmund back, it is right there.

Now we have the backer, a five-man

3:57:173:57:23

team. Doubles, we could win the

Davis Cup multiple times.

If

3:57:233:57:28

everybody commits to playing. Jamie,

watching that match, he just played

3:57:283:57:33

so well. The manner in which he

embraced the whole situation, he

3:57:333:57:37

looked at home.

From the moment he

walked out on Friday, and that is

3:57:373:57:43

something he told that with the team

and Leon Smith, he had a smile on

3:57:433:57:47

his face from the first ball. The

quality of his tennis was one thing

3:57:473:57:53

and you can talk about that by

itself. It was fantastic. But I

3:57:533:57:57

think that stems from the attitude.

You could tell that he absolutely

3:57:573:58:00

loves the occasion and the energy.

He loved being the front man of the

3:58:003:58:05

team that everybody behind him. His

ability to recover from setbacks,

3:58:053:58:10

things that really went wrong, he

didn't carry any baggage. It was not

3:58:103:58:14

like he was having a mental lull.

That is a unique skill. For somebody

3:58:143:58:19

who has not been in many big

situations like that, do not think

3:58:193:58:23

maybe that is the only chance I will

get, for his head not to drop, that

3:58:233:58:29

is really exciting for the future,

and mentality like that.

That is not

3:58:293:58:33

something you can teach. It is

something deep inside you.

They have

3:58:333:58:38

a good team around them and very

good captain that you have got to

3:58:383:58:42

still believe it. They can say what

they like but if you don't take it

3:58:423:58:45

in and believe in yourself, the

first crisis point, you can go into

3:58:453:58:49

yourself. When he started off, he

was down early on in the match on

3:58:493:58:53

the first day. Down two sets to love

and a break and absolutely no panic

3:58:533:58:57

whatsoever. Again you can have

everybody telling you not to panic,

3:58:573:59:02

but you do, most people, especially

on your debut. But he came out with

3:59:023:59:07

total belief.

It was extraordinary.

The way he was mixing it up, he was

3:59:073:59:11

thinking as the match progressed,

throwing junk shots into his

3:59:113:59:18

opponent, not just looking at the

same game all the time.

That is the

3:59:183:59:22

other thing. If you are determined

and you have the right believe, that

3:59:223:59:25

is one thing, but if you don't have

the quality in the tennis that will

3:59:253:59:28

only get you so far. The quality of

his tennis, I know somebody just

3:59:283:59:33

outside the top 100 is a very good

tennis player and we all understand

3:59:333:59:36

that, but what he was able to do on

a clay court for the first time,

3:59:363:59:40

just like you said. His variety,

coming into the net, so successful.

3:59:403:59:45

It feel around the net for somebody

who does not come across as a net

3:59:453:59:49

player really, it was fantastic and

his forehand could be world-class.

3:59:493:59:53

He could come in and put a bit of

pace on it.

Very exciting.

3:59:534:00:01

pace on it.

Very exciting. Tactical

brain as well. Let's enjoy some of

4:00:034:00:04

those points again. He didn't win

the match but he played some of the

4:00:044:00:07

best points during the four sets and

we will just enjoy some of them. Its

4:00:074:00:10

movement and the forehand, such a

weapon.

He was pulled out wide, on

4:00:104:00:16

the forehand side particularly, and

you thought that point was done, but

4:00:164:00:19

he not only got to it, he hit

winners of it. The scrambling

4:00:194:00:23

ability he had, there were so many

times! That one was ridiculous.

To

4:00:234:00:30

get an angle like that, it is almost

not possible.

4:00:304:00:37

You could put some of these in any

Hall of Fame and say they are right

4:00:394:00:43

up there with the best points.

We

talked about the variety of his play

4:00:434:00:48

but not intimidated at all by who is

down the other end, showing no

4:00:484:00:52

respect for the world ranking at

all.

That is what was amazing and at

4:00:524:00:57

this point it is a prime example,

more than happy to go toe to toe

4:00:574:01:05

with one...

One of the best

clay-court players around.

That was

4:01:054:01:13

the drop volley which almost back

spun back into the net. These are

4:01:134:01:16

long points. These are absolutely

fantastic to win points, and coming

4:01:164:01:23

at the end of 15, 20, 30 shot

rallies. Physically stepping up to

4:01:234:01:27

the line and doing it again and

again.

It seemed towards the end,

4:01:274:01:33

the third set tie-break you got the

feeling, it was so crucial for both

4:01:334:01:38

players in a way and it changed the

momentum of the match because after

4:01:384:01:41

some great shots it was sort of

one-way traffic in the fourth set.

4:01:414:01:47

Ramos-Vinolas running away with it.

It looks like his legs were going a

4:01:474:01:52

little, Cameron Norrie at the end.

In the fourth set he tried for a few

4:01:524:01:57

more winners, try to end points

quickly because I think he had run

4:01:574:02:01

out of gas. Against an experienced

player like this who is so good in

4:02:014:02:05

the end he got too many balls back

but what a performance.

Absolutely.

4:02:054:02:10

And we must salute the Spaniard for

playing his part, it's not easy

4:02:104:02:14

playing someone who is playing above

themselves and all the pressure on

4:02:144:02:17

your shoulders.

He saw what happened

to his friend a couple of days

4:02:174:02:23

before from two setup, thinking I do

not want to see that happen again.

4:02:234:02:27

But if you look at the way the match

went, was incredible.

4:02:274:02:29

But if you look at the way the match

went, was incredible. Norrie could

4:02:294:02:34

have won all three of the first

sets. But that 5-5 he had come back

4:02:344:02:39

into the set and was not able to

hold serve. He ended up getting to

4:02:394:02:43

the tie-break but you wonder if that

might have made a difference. I did

4:02:434:02:47

not see the numbers but by the end

of the third set even though he was

4:02:474:02:50

2-1 down he probably won more points

than his opponent. Very difficult

4:02:504:02:56

mentally to have lost those

tie-breaks and physically more than

4:02:564:02:59

three hours into the match to think

you have to come back and win, we

4:02:594:03:04

saw it was just one step too far.

It

must be

4:03:044:03:11

must be nice, it's infectious within

the team which is important.

4:03:134:03:17

Absolutely, you could see the whole

bench, I think the British team

4:03:174:03:21

including Leon Smith were shocked at

what they were seeing. To do it in

4:03:214:03:27

practice is one thing but to do it

in the match and all the players

4:03:274:03:30

watching him I think they were

shocked. They just got inspired by

4:03:304:03:34

watching the way he competed out

there. His energy level, for the

4:03:344:03:38

young players watching this on TV,

to watch somebody like that, what an

4:03:384:03:44

inspiration he is.

The bottom line

is we lost in the first round which

4:03:444:03:47

means we have come back to play in

the play-offs in September which is

4:03:474:03:52

never easy because Argentina, Russia

went down last year. All sorts of

4:03:524:03:57

dangerous opponents you could play

but Leon will say Andy will be back

4:03:574:04:03

and Kyle hopefully fit and wanting

to play.

There are no easy matches,

4:04:034:04:09

but on the point around the team

just looking, there was a good

4:04:094:04:13

camera shot of Ramos looking at his

bench at the end and David Ferrer

4:04:134:04:16

giving him the nod and on the point

of role models for the British team

4:04:164:04:20

to have Andy Murray, everyone to see

what Kyle Edmund is doing, as you

4:04:204:04:24

said, any British players in the

frame to see regardless of the

4:04:244:04:28

ranking what Cameron Norrie just did

it makes a massive difference, this

4:04:284:04:34

is a world-class team with players

able to compete on the world stage.

4:04:344:04:38

That makes a massive difference.

Spain go

4:04:384:04:42

That makes a massive difference.

Spain go through. Let's look at the

4:04:424:04:44

world group. Plenty of matches going

on as we speak. Reigning champions

4:04:444:04:49

France lead 2-1 against the

Netherlands. But 1-1 in the singles

4:04:494:04:54

match today so still a long way to

go. Italy have defeated Japan,

4:04:544:04:59

Fognini in an epic five set

thriller, saving match point.

4:04:594:05:04

Germany went through after Zverev

beat Krygios in straight sets.

4:05:044:05:09

Kazakhstan winning 4-1.

4:05:094:05:16

Kazakhstan winning 4-1. The singles

match with Croatia against Canada

4:05:204:05:21

today, it is one set to church. The

United States have defeated Serbia,

4:05:214:05:33

dead rubbers today. Belgium were 2-1

up, David Goffin is up in his

4:05:334:05:39

singles match today.

4:05:394:05:44

singles match today. Unfortunately

it is not Great Britain are going

4:05:454:05:47

through but we can hear from the

British captain Leon Smith who has

4:05:474:05:50

made his way to the pressroom.

4:05:504:05:52

Thank you for talking to us, not the

result you wanted but it was so

4:05:554:05:59

close again, the third set breaker,

if it had gone the other way we

4:05:594:06:03

might have been in business.

I

cannot speak highly enough of what

4:06:034:06:06

Cameron has done all weekend. And

again today. People might have

4:06:064:06:10

thought it was a one off on Friday

but he did it again today against

4:06:104:06:14

another high-quality player. Both

breakers, anything can happen.

4:06:144:06:20

Pushed him really close and I am

really proud of him.

Did you have

4:06:204:06:25

any inkling he was capable of

producing this tennis? Sergi

4:06:254:06:29

Bruguera could not believe he

sustained that level after four

4:06:294:06:33

hours.

In June he looks really good

shape. Sitting on the bench at the

4:06:334:06:39

end feeling like he could all day.

The big thing for him is now he can

4:06:394:06:44

get physically more powerful, he can

get more power in the strokes.

4:06:444:06:49

Nobody can tell how someone will go

out and play an debut and he has

4:06:494:06:53

been playing mostly on Challenger

Tour but if he needs some sort of

4:06:534:06:57

reference point for how far he can

go he's got it this weekend. The

4:06:574:07:00

only way is up for him.

He has to be

positive hasn't he?

Absolutely.

4:07:004:07:08

Physically incredible and he played

well in practice but you don't know

4:07:084:07:11

what he will do, any player who

comes out on a Davis Cup debut and

4:07:114:07:15

going up a class in rankings and he

proved he can compete. For me he

4:07:154:07:20

will only go up and experience like

that, this is the toughest arena in

4:07:204:07:24

tennis, Davis Cup and he's gone out

in front of a huge crowd and who

4:07:244:07:27

knows where he can go?

We have run

out of time but thank you gentlemen,

4:07:274:07:33

before we go, plenty of sport coming

up on BBC Two. One of Britain's best

4:07:334:07:40

hope for a medal at the Winter

Olympics and a special documentary

4:07:404:07:43

on her build-up to the games. Then

the last Ski Sunday before the

4:07:434:07:47

games. And Six Nations highlights at

six o'clock with highlights from all

4:07:474:07:54

three games. That's it from us, we

will be back hopefully in September

4:07:544:08:01

as Britain faced a tough play-off

match but what the future of Cameron

4:08:014:08:05

Norrie, we enjoyed watching him.

Goodbye.

4:08:054:08:08

Perfect start for Spain. That is

magnificent. No! No way! What was

4:08:134:08:20

that? Oh my goodness! Titanic set of

tennis comes to an end. Spain one

4:08:204:08:28

set up. Again we are witnessing

something pretty extraordinary.

4:08:284:08:35

Cameron Norrie has levelled the

match, it is 1-1.

How did he win

4:08:354:08:41

that point?

That could be massive.

Spain are one set away from the

4:08:414:08:48

quarterfinals of the Davis Cup. Free

now. Holds to love. What a proud

4:08:484:08:58

moment for Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

4:08:584:08:59

Sue Barker presents coverage from the final day of the Davis Cup World Group match between Spain and Great Britain.
