  • Tie Summary

    Italy emerged victorious in an exciting tie against Great Britain in Naples. The Italians will now make their first semifinal appearance since 1998.


    After a lengthy rain delay, Italian No. 1 Fabio Fognini recorded a four set win over James Ward, but the rain meant that the second singles match (between Andreas Seppi and Andy Murray) could not be completed until the second day. Murray eventually ran out a straight sets winner, before teaming up with Colin Fleming to win the doubles. However, Fognini and Seppi proved too strong in the reverse singles, each winning in straight sets to send Italy through.
