Thiem Leads Austria To Davis Cup Victory Over Australia | ATP World Tour

AUSTRIA 3, AUSTRALIA 1
Graz, Austria (Outdoor clay)

Dominic Thiem needed two hours and 57 minutes to complete a 3-1 victory for Austria over Australia on Sunday. The World No. 8, who also secured his nation’s first point on Friday, converted seven of 12 break points and landed 29 winners to defeat Alex de Minaur 6-4, 6-2, 3-6, 6-4.

Having trailed 0-2 after Friday’s singles rubbers, Lleyton Hewitt and John Peers had given the visitors a chance of a miraculous comeback in Graz. But Thiem, who reached his first Grand Slam final at Roland Garros in June, proved too strong for his 19-year-old #NextGenATP opponent on clay.

GREAT BRITAIN 3, UZBEKISTAN 1
Glasgow, Great Britain (Indoor hard)

Cameron Norrie quickly overcame the disappointment of letting a two-set lead slip on Friday by clinching a 3-1 win for Great Britain over Uzbekistan in Glasgow. Firing 22 forehand winners in one hour and 53 minutes, Norrie cruised to a 6-2, 6-2, 6-0 win over Sanjar Fayziev.

JAPAN 4, BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA 0
Osaka, Japan (Outdoor hard)

Having confirmed victory without dropping a set on Saturday, Japan scored a fourth straight-sets win over Bosnia and Herzegovina on Sunday. Yosuke Watanuki required just 58 minutes to move past Darko Bojanovic 6-1, 6-3.

SERBIA 4, INDIA 0
Kraljevo, Serbia (Indoor clay)

Like Japan, Serbia also added a fourth success in as many matches to defeat India 4-0. Pedja Krstin hit six aces and broke serve on five occasions to beat N.Sriram Balaji 6-3, 6-1.
