After their doubles match, Jack Sock gave Andy Murray a token of respect and gratitude. By defeating Murray and Joe Salisbury 5-7 6-4 7-5 on Wednesday night in Glasgow, Sock and Rajeev Ram gave the United States the crucial second point in their tie with Great Britain.

The United States and Great Britain were tied at one point apiece after two singles rubbers. Sock and Ram overcame challenging opponents and the Glasgow audience to emerge with a close victory in a match that lasted two hours and 49 minutes.

“We were competing in his native nation against one of the greatest players ever. The atmosphere was tremendous, and we persevered and won “Sock stated following the game.

Bob Bryan wins his first match as captain thanks to Sock.

Mardy Fish, the captain of the American team, tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

Fish got in touch with Bryan to see if he would be open to serving as interim captain during the Davis Cup Finals group stage. Bryan claimed he knew it would be a close and difficult struggle after leading the United States to victory over Great Britain.

“Oh my god, that became a classic overnight. We anticipated it would be a barn-burner. The courts are sluggish, and we anticipated difficult fights. Although those players were particularly dialed in during practice, our team was performing excellently.

We’re just delighted to have made it through despite the tremendous crowd. There will be more difficult times ahead, and I anticipate that Team GB will do well in their matches “By Bryan. Tommy Paul’s victory over Daniel Evans gave the Americans an early lead in the match.

In the second rubber, Taylor Fritz had a chance to give the Americans the victory, but he fell to Cameron Norrie. Fortunately for the Americans, Sock and Ram performed admirably in the doubles match, and they came away victorious.
