Israel clinched a victory over Great Britain in their Davis Cup Europe/Africa Zone Group 1 relegation tie when Noam Okun defeated Jamie Delgado in a five-set thriller at the International Lawn Tennis Centre in Eastbourne, England, on Sunday. This is the first time that Israel has defeated Great Britain in the Davis Cup. Okun, Israel's top male tennis player with a ranking of 270 in the world, beat Delgado, a late replacement for the injured Andy Murray, 6-3, 6-4, 6-7(5), 2-6, 6-3, as the blue-and-white took a 3-1 lead in the best-of-five tie.
