Andy Murray celebrate Great Britain Davis Cup win

Great Britain pulled off a famous Davis Cup Finals victory over France in Manchester and afterwards there was a bit of a clash of generations during Andy Murray and Jack Draper drive back home, resulting in a hilarious journey.

There were extraordinary scenes at Manchester’s AO Arena on Sunday as Dan Evans guided the hosts to a come-from-behind victory in the must-win doubles clash.

After winning his singles rubber against Arthur Fils earlier in the day, Evans teamed up with Neal Skupski to secure a 1-6, 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (8-6) win over Nicolas Mahut and Edouard Roger-Vasselin.

That scoreline doesn’t tell the full story as Evans and Skupski saved four match points in the deciding set before wrapping up the win on their second match point in the tie-break.

It sparked wild celebrations among the Great Britain squad members and the spectators in the stands as the team secured their ticket to the Davis Cup Finals 8 in Malaga, Spain, in November.

After all was said and done, Murray and Draper shared a three-and-half-hour car ride back home.

But while the 20-year-old was downing beers and belting out “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by The Proclaimers – incidentally one of Murray’s favourite bands – former world No 1 Murray was not amused by youngster’s wild celebrations.

The three-time Grand Slam winner calmly played Uber as he drove the car and at one point he gently flipped the bird during Draper’s rendition of the Scottish band’s famous song.

“Kids these days. Three and half hours of this on the way home….. @jackdraper,” the 36-year-old wrote on his Instagram Story.

Back to the actual tennis and hero Evans admitted during the post-match celebrations that winning matches like that was made tennis special.

“Davis Cup is why I played tennis at the start,” the 27-year-old, who also won his singles rubber against Switzerland on Friday, told BBC Sport.

“I remember watching the Birmingham ties, finishing late on a Sunday night. That was my first introduction to professional tennis really.

“That was the be-all and end-all to play Davis Cup for my country – and it still is. I’m not a nervous person but before you play Davis Cup it is a different feeling.”

The draw for the Final 8 will take place at 11:00 (BST) on Tuesday 19 September in order to determine the quarter-final match-ups.

Here are the possibilities:

Canada v Australia or Finland

Czechia v Australia or Finland

Italy or Serbia v Netherlands

Italy or Serbia v Great Britain
