It all got a bit too much for Andy Murray this afternoon after he sent Great Britain into the semi finals of the Davis Cup for the first time in 34 years at Queens Club in London.
The world No.3 and British No.1 produced a stunning comeback against France’s top seed Gilles Simon, battling back from a set and a break down to take the match 4-6 7-6 (7/5) 6-3 6-0 after three hours and 26 minutes, which gave his side an unassailable 3-1 advantage in the best of five ties.
However, although the occasion was a joyous one and Murray’s team mates celebrated their achievement, Murray broke down in tears just moments after his victory.
Having dug so deep, the Scot’s emotions got the better of him, just as they did in 2012, when he produced a lip-quivering interview after defeat to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon final.
Great Britain will be hopeful that their star man can regain his composure ahead of a mouth watering semi-final clash against Australia.
