The third day of the new ATP Cup finds Greece competing against Germany. However, despite the ambitious attempt by the World No. 6 Tsitsipas to hit the German team that initially led to his victory over the World No. 5 Alexander Zverev 6-1 6-4 in the sets, Greece failed to prevail after Tsitsipas’ and Pervolarakis’ defeat in the doubles with 2-1 despite their strong start in the first set with a 6-3 win over the German Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies.
Former Greek opponents, the Australian Felix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov, on the other hand, lost to Canadians John Millman and Alex de Minaur with 6-4 6-2 and 6-7 6-4 6-2 in singles and in doubles as well with 6-3 7-6 by John Peers and Chris Guccione.
Greece has thus far failed to secure its first ATP Cup victory and it only remains to compete with Australia on Tuesday, while Canada plays against Germany. This fact virtually excludes Greece from the eight finalists.
