ATP Cup round 1: Victories for Nadal and Djokovic

Top tennis players showed their levels by beating other opponents to help their teams win at the first round of the 2020 ATP Cup.

Playing for the South Africa team, Kevin Anderson caused many troubles for the former world number one Novak Djokovic. However, Nole managed to get through difficulties by beating Anderson in two tie-break sets.

Following Djokovic and Dusan Lajovic, who won the first single's match, Nikola Cacic and Victor Troicky played an impressive game to win against Raven Klaasen and Ruan Roelofse. Overall, the Serbia team won South Africa in the first round of Group A by a 3-0 score.

Like Djokovic, Nadal won the first match at the 2020 ATP Cup, but he did it easier than Nole. Facing Georgian player Nikoloz Basilashvili, he won in straight sets by 6-3 and 7-5 scores.

Spain team also won all three matches in the first round, and they even made it without losing any sets. After that, Spain will play against the Uruguay team in the second round, when Nadal has a chance to gain another victory over Pablo Cuevas. It seems that Nadal will easily win the match.

On the contrary, young players namely Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev disappointed the supporters after losing much weaker players compared to them. While Tsitsipas was defeated by Denis Shapovalov in straight sets, Zverev was beaten by Alex De Minaur.
