A great start to Great Britain
Great Britain opened the Davis Cup finals in Manchester with a win over last year’s finalists, Australia. Jack Draper (ATP 106) defeated Thanasi Kokkinakis (ATP 74) and Don Evans (ATP 27) defeated Alex de Minaur (ATP 12) in 3 sets as the lower-ranked players to decide the tournament before the doubles. Australians Matthew Epton (no individual classification) and Max Purcell (ATP 43) took it in 2 sets against Evans and Neil Skupski (no individual classification). Great Britain, which is without three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray, will face Switzerland on Friday with big chests. In the first match against France, they lost 0-3. France face Australia on Thursday.
