Britain wins doubles, 1 point away from Davis Cup title

GHENT, Belgium (AP) -- Britain is one point away from lifting the Davis Cup title for the first time in 79 years after winning Saturday's doubles against Belgium.

Brothers Andy and Jamie Murray beat David Goffin and Steve Darcis 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 to give Britain a 2-1 lead in the final going into Sunday's decisive reverse singles.

Andy Murray could seal Britain's victory in Sunday's first match against Goffin.

The brothers fought off seven break points in the fourth game of the fourth set to stay one break up and rode that advantage to clinch the match as the Belgians' spirit collapsed.

The two teams were split 1-1 after the opening singles on Friday.
