20 minutes – Russia and Great Britain in quarters of the ATP Cup

    Russia and Great Britain won their ticket to the ATP Cup quarter-finals on Tuesday, unlike Germany who left the group stage after the underperformance of its leader, Alexander Zverev.

    Full box for the Russians: by beating Casper Ruud and Viktor Durasovic respectively, Daniil Medvedev and Karen Khachanov won their third duel in a row, propelling their team to the quarters.

    Impressive, Medvedev, 5th in the world, struck 34 winning strokes and 13 aces to score the young but tough Norwegian wolf, who nevertheless fell from two other members of the top 10 during his previous meetings (Isner and Fognini).

    Zverev misses

    Conversely, Zverev went completely beyond the competition. After his defeats against the Australian Alex de Minaur and the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, the world number 7 bowed Tuesday in just over an hour against the Canadian Denis Shapovalov. The German glove was notably betrayed by its service throughout the competition, with notably no less than 31 double faults. Enough to worry less than 15 days before the start of the Australian Open.

    In Group C, Great Britain won their qualification by beating Moldova 3-0, and also thanks to Belgium’s victory over Bulgaria (2-1) which allowed the English to secure first place.

    In the quarterfinals, they will oppose Australia, already qualified since Sunday, but which offered a prestigious victory Tuesday, seeing Nick Kyrgios beat the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, world number 6, at the end of a particularly match tight.
