Andy Murray levels the score at 1-1 in Great Britain's Davis Cup tie with Italy, after beating Andreas Seppi in straight sets.

Andy Murray has beaten Andreas Seppi 6-4 7-5 6-3 to level the scores at 1-1 in Great Britain's Davis Cup quarter-final with Italy.

The Scot had led 6-4 5-5 when play had to be suspended yesterday due to bad light, and wrapped the game up this morning in just 75 minutes.

Murray immediately broke serve on the resumption today before holding to take the second set.

He continued to push his opponent around the court in the third and final set, as Seppi began to realise he was a beaten man, and rolled off five games in a row to seal the match.

Murray must now recover quickly if he is selected for the crucial doubles tie later this afternoon.
