DAVIS Cup Qualifiers, The Basics Live On SUPERTENNIX
Australia – Hungary 1-1
Ken Rosewall Arena, Sydney. harsh, outward
Against Ken Rosewall, in his assigned Sydney center, Alex de Minaur gave Australia the first point. The world number 30 beat 23-year-old Zsumbor Beros, who stunned Marin Cilic and John Millman last year in Turin in the Davis Cup Finals group. Thus, the fifth success occurred in the last six meetings in Davis. “This is the stadium where I have always preferred to play – wearing the green and gold shirt against the sporting legends with all the history, culture and tradition of the Australian national team for the Davis Cup – it is a special feeling,” said the Australian No.1.
Kokinakis played with a probability of 2-0 after the second set dominated Marton Fukowicz, who is ahead of him with 64 places in the standings (35 Hungarian, 99 Australian). But Hungarian No. 1 left the field at the end of the set and broke the rhythm at the start of the third set. “It was a very physical match, there was high humidity and it wasn’t easy to play. But I like the balls and the surface, then the atmosphere is great,” said Fukowicz.
