Glasgow - Andy Murray broke down in tears on Sunday after leading Great Britain past Luxembourg 4-1 in the Davis Cup, overcome by making a rare competitive appearance in his native Scotland.

Murray wept after his 6-4, 6-3, 6-1 victory over Gilles Muller earned Britain a Europe/Africa Group II play-off against Hungary later this year.

After watching James Ward seal a 4-1 triumph with a comfortable 6-1, 6-3 win in a dead rubber against Mike Vermeer, Murray said: "It was one of those things, I wasn't expecting that to happen.

"Davis Cup is just different to all the other tournaments and that showed today(Sunday).

"(The Scottish crowd) makes a difference, I don't get that chance very often.

"It's the first time in a long time that I got the chance to play in Scotland.

"The last tie I was really ill right before the tie against Serbia, I was sick just before the doubles game.

"I thought I was jinxed because when we played against Ukraine I got really ill when I came back from Dubai. I lost loads of weight and couldn't play. I'm glad I was okay this time."

    Winning must have felt new to him, he didn't know what else to do?
