Andy Murray fought off a spirited 3rd set performance from Sebo Kiss 6-0 6-2 7-6(2) to help Great Britain to a two rubber lead against Hungary.
Murray strolled though the first set without any trouble. During the second set Kiss, a law student who only plays tennis part time, started to raise his game as he became more use to Murray's game.
As the match came to, what seemed to be the conclusion, Kiss won 3 games in a row to level the set at 5 each (including a hold from 0-40) as his confidence increased and Murray became more anxious to close out the match. The set went into a tie-break where the Scot closed the match out.
In the earlier match, James Ward produced a battling performance, which included sickness and cramps, to beat Attila Balazs 6-4 6-4 4-6 6-4.
Tomorrow, Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins are expected to play in the doubles with a victory sealing Great Britain's return to Euro/Africa Zone 1.
