Tim Henman gets his wish as ‘great spirit’ carries Great Britain into ATP Cup clash with Australia
Great Britain will face hosts Australia in the ATP Cup quarter-final and team captain Tim Henman admits “a big challenge” awaits them.
Henman’s squad started their final round-robin clash against Moldova knowing that only victory would keep the play-off hopes alive and they delivered as they won 3-0.
Cam Norrie set the ball rolling as he beat Moldova’s Alexander Cozbinov 6-2, 6-2 and then Dan Evans secured the tie with victory over Radu Albot with a similar scoreline.
Joe Salisbury and Jamie Murray completed the clean sweep with a 6-2, 6-3 win against Albot and Cozbinov.

However, in order for GB to progress as Group C winners, Belgium had to beat Bulgaria 2-1 and that’s exactly how it panned out.
Before the Belgium-Bulgaria tie, Henman praised his team and admitted he would “love” to face Lleyton Hewitt’s Australia.
“I feel like there has been a great spirit in our team,” he said.
“I have certainly kept an eye on the other cities and what’s been going on there. It would be a lot of fun if that were the case.
“Obviously I have a lot of history with Lleyton and everyone knows their team well. It would be a big challenge.
“We would love that opportunity, because it would mean we have come through our group.”
Australia, meanwhile, took top spot in Group F after they beat Greece.
