James Ward: Andy Murray support was "special"

James Ward says that Andy Murray's support was "special" during his final set win over John Isner in the Davis Cup.

James Ward has said that Andy Murray's support was "special" during his Davis Cup victory over John Isner yesterday.

The world number 126 came from two sets behind to beat Isner, 86 places above him, 15-13 in the final set.

"To have Andy there living every point with you is something I haven't really experienced before and that's why it was a special moment," Ward told reporters.

"He is probably my best friend in tennis and we did a lot of training in Miami. He knows how hard I have worked and I know how hard he works. So it was good to share the moment together."

The result gave Great Britain a 2-0 lead, following Andy Murray's win over Donald Young earlier in the day.
