24

Brisbane: Novak Djokovic outclassed Gael Monfils with 6-3, 6-2 score at the inaugural ATP Cup team event in Brisbane on Monday.

He won his singles and doubles matches back-to-back and secure a spot in the ATP Cup quarterfinals.

The Serb saved nine breakpoints on his own serve while converting all three he had against Monfils, who finished 2019 in the top 10, to square the tie after temperamental Benoit Paire had given France the lead by overcoming Dusan Lajovic 6-2, 6-7(6), 6-4.

World number one Rafael Nadal was also in a punishing mood and kept his preparations for this month’s Australian Open on track by dismantling Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas 6-2, 6-1 in Perth to seal the tie for Spain.
