Davis Cup

Great Britain head into a crucial Davis Cup doubles rubber level with Spain after Cameron Norrie came from two sets behind to beat Roberto Bautista-Agut.

Norrie took to the clay in Marbella on Friday with Great Britain needing the win after Liam Broady went down in straight sets to Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

Although the world No 165 tried his best, he lost 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 in Friday’s first match.

That put the pressure firmly on Norrie as he lined up against Bautista Agut.

It looked to be a dismal day for Great Britain as he lost the opening two sets and was down 3-1 in the third before launching a fight-back.

The world No 114 rallied back to win 4-6, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2.

“It’s 100 per cent the best day of my career,” Norrie told the BBC.

“I was nervous and had a streak in the second set where I couldn’t get a serve but I pulled it together.

“Thanks to my team, they gave me great energy. I thought I was tougher and physically I had some problems but I played it point by point.

“I managed to pull it together and keep Great Britain in the tie. It gave me a lot of confidence because it was my first match on clay.”
