GB ease to 4-1 victory
Great Britain wrapped up a comfortable victory over Croatia on Sunday in their Davis Cup World Group play-off tie at the All England Club, Wimbledon.

British number one Andy Murray defeated Roko Karanusic 6-4 7-6 to give the hosts a 4-0 lead before Marin Cilic defeated Scotland’s Jamie Baker 6-4 6-4 to save the visitors’ blushes.

Tim Henman, who played the final match of his career on Saturday in a doubles victory with Jamie Murray, addressed the crowd at the end of the tie.

“Thanks for your support,” he said. “For the last 14 years of my career it really has been greatly appreciated and I’m going to miss you all in the future.”

The draw for the first round of the 2008 World Group is scheduled to be made in London on Thursday September 27.

Elsewhere, in this year’s World Group semi-final ties the Americans beat Sweden in Gothenburg and Russia defeated Germany 3-2 in Moscow.
