GHENT, Belgium – Virginia men’s tennis alum Dominic Inglot ’09 was part of the five-man team representing Great Britain that defeated Belgium in the Davis Cup World Group Final at the Flanders Expo in Ghent, Belgium on Sunday (Nov. 29) to win Britain’s first Davis Cup since 1936.
Inglot has been part of the British team throughout this year’s Davis Cup run and competed in doubles with Jamie Murray back in March when the British team defeated the American squad, 3-2, in the first round of world group matches. He did not compete in the finals in Belgium, though he was part of the five-man travel squad.
Inglot, who is currently ranked No. 23 in the world in doubles, is the first Virginia alum to be part of a Davis Cup Championship team. Inglot is one of five Cavalier alums that have competed for their home nations in Davis Cup matches including Somdev Devvarman ’08 (India) and Treat Huey (Phillipines) who competed this year.
This is Great Britain’s their first Davis Cup Championship since 1936. The team has also been elevated to a World No. 1 ranking.
Andy Murray clinched the victory on Sunday, beating David Goffin in straight sets to give Great Britain a 3-1 victory. Read more Here
