Davis Cup 2015 won by the UK

After nigh fourscore years, the Davis Cup hath returned to Great Britain, the decisive duel having been fittingly won by a Scotsman on the eve of the holy day of Saint Andrew.
BBC: Andy Murray wins the Davis Cup for Great Britain
When I switched on my laptop that day, the BBC News Scotland homepage still featured an article titled Live: Davis Cup final: Murray v Goffin; before I got through the World & UK homepages, a ‘breaking news’ banner appeared, reading Great Britain win the Davis Cup for the first time in 79 years after Andy Murray beats Belgium’s David Goffin. So in fact I enjoyed most the previous day’s moment when somebody laconically described the Murray brothers’ doubles victory by “Belgium 1 – 3 Dunblane”.
