Britain won the Davis Cup for the first time in 79 years in Ghent Sunday when Andy Murray defeated David Goffin 6-3, 7-5, 6-3 in the first of the reverse singles to take an unbeatable 3-1 lead over Belgium.The win over Goffin made him just the third player, after John McEnroe and Mats Wilander, to win all eight singles in the same calendar year since the Davis Cup World Group started in 1981 .And it underpinned Murray's place in tennis history following his headline-making wins in the 2012 U.S. Open and Olympics, and at Wimbledon the following year.He is only the third player to win Wimbledon, Olympic singles gold and the Davis Cup in the Open era after Rafael Nadal and Andre AgassiMurray held serve with ease, while Goffin hung on grimly.Against a player of Murray's caliber and fitness it was a huge task.
