Tie Highlights | Great Britain vs USA | Davis Cup Finals 2022


Great Britain have faced the Netherlands on four occasions in the Davis Cup and currently boast an unbeaten record against the Dutch side.

Their most recent meeting came in 2019 at the Finals in Madrid, where the Brits defeated the Netherlands 2-1 in Group E. Andy Murray opened the tie with a trademark win over Tallon Griekspoor, coming from a set down to take a 6-7(7), 6-4, 7-6(5) victory. With Dan Evans having lost the second singles to Robin Hasse, it came down to the deciding doubles rubber, where Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski emerged 6-4, 7-6(6) victors over Wesley Koolhof and Jean-Julien Rojer.

The two sides last faced each other in Great Britain back in 2007 at the NEC in Birmingham, where Jamie Murray made a rare singles appearance in a 4-1 win for the Brits.



The Brits come into this second tie with their place in the competition at stake, having lost a nail-biter to the USA, while the Dutch team will be looking to push ahead and reclaim the top spot following their 2-1 win over Kazakhstan.

Carried by three-set wins from both their singles players – Tallon Griekspoor and Botic van de Zandschlup – this strong Netherlands team will pose a threat to the Brits in every rubber.

Cam Norrie – who put in a huge performance to come back against world No.12 Taylor Fritz – does however hold a 1-0 winning record against Van de Zandschlup after beating the Dutchman 6-1, 6-2, just a matter of weeks ago in Montreal.

Evans has been in impressive form in recent months, most notably at the Masters in Montreal where he reached the semi-finals, and will be looking to get his first win of the Finals so far, after a close three-set tussle against Tommy Paul. However, Andy Murray will of course also be available to answer the call should Leon Smith require and has history with Griekspoor, having defeated him in his first Davis Cup match since his surgery.

British fans will be intrigued to see who captain Leon Smith selects for this doubles tie against one of the strongest match-ups in the competition. Joe Salisbury and Murray showed several moments of brilliance in their narrow defeat to the USA, but Smith also has an ace up his sleeve in the form of Skupski, who is the regular doubles partner of Netherlands star, Wesley Koolhof.
