Murray and Djokovic primed for July Davis Cup clash under Belgrade sun

Novak Djokovic

It could hardly be more ideal for the game and the competition if Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, the two best players in the world, duel over the Davis Cup quarter-final outdoors at high summer in Belgrade, even though that would present the Scot with the toughest possible impediment to leading Great Britain to a successful defence of the title they won in 2015 for the first time in 79 years.

British wild card Tara Moore registers first win at a grand slam event

Tara Moore, a Briton ranked 227, won her first match at a grand slam event on Tuesday, a 6-3, 6-2 victory against Belgium’s Alison Van Uytvanck sending her into the second round here at the third time of asking. The 23-year-old repaid the faith shown by tournament organisers in giving her a wild card, with a fine performance to make it four Britons into round two.
