He came up with some big shots, but so did I and managed to hold my nerve, Cameron Norrie

The final victory came in the mixed doubles after the two singles matches were shared with world No.91 Cameron Norrie getting the Brits off to an excellent start by upsetting the 15th world-ranked Sefanos Tsitsipas 7-6(8) 6-4 leaving Maria Sakari to keep the Greeks in contention with her 6-0 4-6 6-2 win over Katie Boulter.

With the tie in the balance, the mixed doubles was played out in the short set format. Even then it wasn’t until the final stages that victory was secured by Norrie & Boulter 4-3(0) 3-4(2) 4-3(4).

Following his singles defeat, Tsitsipas said: “It was tough to adjust. From the very beginning I felt uncomfortable, I don’t know why. Probably because of the weather conditions. In general, I felt a bit tired. I will try to understand why I felt like this.”

The left-handed Norrie after admitting he had benefited from arriving early for a cousin’s wedding in Dunsborough, described his win as one of his best.

“He came up with some big shots, but so did I and managed to hold my nerve,” he said. “The second set I stayed solid and played well at the end.”

Britain playing in Group B, has some difficult matches ahead having to face the defending champions Switzerland featuring Roger Federer, and the US, if they are to progress to the final which will be fought out by the two nations topping their group with the other group being made up of Germany, France, Australia and Spain.
