Italy thwarts Britain's dream of first Davis Cup semi-final in 33 years
Italy reportedly stunned Great Britain with a battling 3-2 win in Naples on Sunday to thwart the Britishers dream of a first Davis Cup semi-final appearance in 33 years.
The British were reportedly leading 2-1 going into Sunday's closing two reverse singles, but Italy's world number 13 Fabio Fognini stunned Andy Murray 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 to level the tie at 2-2 and then Andreas Seppi secured the decisive last point with a 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 victory over James Ward.
According to Sport24, Italy, who last appeared in the semi-finals in 1998, will now face Switzerland in the September 12-14 Davis Cup semi-final.
This was reportedly Murray's first Davis Cup singles loss since 2005.
Italy has reached the last four for the first time in 16 years when they went on to finish runners-up to Sweden, the report added.
