David Goffin lost 6-4 6-4 to Daniel Evans, which enabled Great Britain to return to a victory against Belgium on the second day of group C of the first ATP Cup, the new team tennis competition organized by ATP in Sydney, Australia.
This match lasted 1 hour and 48 minutes. "I felt the level was good out there, I'd say one of the highest levels I've played. It felt that way, and obviously it made it pretty sweet to have everyone there behind.
And in this new format, I think it's a pretty good way to play having the seats behind in the corners," Evans said. "It's pretty cool. It definitely helped to get me through the match." In the opening match in Ken Rosewall Arena, Steve Darcis defeated Cameron Norrie without any difficulties.
Jamie Murray and Joe Salisbury defeated Sander Gille and Joran Vliegen 6-3, 7-6(7) in one hour and 32 minutes to seal Great Britain's 2-1 win against Belgium. They have both qualified for the Nitto ATP Finals separately and have not faced a break point against the Belgians.
"Evo played an amazing match today. Me, personally, I don't know how Joe felt, but I was, like, 'I cannot let that slide.' We had another chance at it to win a title, and we can't let it go again," Jamie Murray said. "We've got to win that match and make his performance count for something."
