Andy Murray revels in Davis Cup win after Great Britain reach final

Andy Murray was ecstatic after steering Great Britain to the Davis Cup final but is staying calm on their prospects.
Britain reached their first Davis Cup final in 37 years after beating Australia at the weekend and will be hunting glory in a competition they have not won since 1936, when Fred Perry helped them to their fourth successive title.
Leon Smith's team must travel to Belgium for the final on November 27-29, with the exact venue to be confirmed before the end of this month.
Murray, whose straight-sets win over Bernard Tomic sealed victory in the semi-final, said: "I've thought about what it means to reach the final. Let's not think about what it means to win the event.
"We'll have an opportunity to do that in the next match but there's so much tennis still to go. A lot can happen between now and then.
"Belgium have a player in [David] Goffin who is very close to being in the top 10 of the world and by then it's possible that he is. Whichever surface they choose will be the one they feel gives them the best chance.
"There are no guarantees but reaching the final is a big achievement, something that hasn't been done for a long time, and everyone in the team should be very proud of that."
With the final coming immediately after the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London, Murray will reconsider his plans for the rest of the year to ensure he is in the best condition possible for Belgium.
But he dismissed reports that he was set to pull out of the Shanghai Masters early next month.
The 28-year-old, who overcame a back strain to inspire Britain to their 3-2 triumph in Glasgow, added: "It depends a little bit on which surface we are playing on but I'll definitely look at the schedule now and make some decision on that in the next few days.
"I'm planning on playing Shanghai. I'm not playing any other Asian events but my current plans are to travel to Shanghai on the Wednesday to practice outdoors because there are very few guys to practise with in London, and the weather is pretty up and down. I have booked flights to go."
