Australia and Russia secured the first 2 tickets for Saturday’s semifinals.
The Australian hosts prevailed in a crazy game that was judged in the details over the British and await the winner of the match between Spain and Belgium. De Minaur, overcoming a minor injury, returned to the team but lost to Evans. Fortunately, Nick Kyrgios, who is in great form, had done his part by defeating Norrie and giving his country the lead. So everything was judged in the double’s game, where the Australian coach decided to line up De Minaur/Kyrgios duo against the much more experienced Murray/Salisbury. And he was eventually justified, as Australia won the tie-break and qualified for the semifinal.
In the second quarter final, Russia, with Medvedev and Kachanov showing their undisputed class once again, took the first two games and secured the qualification for their country against Argentina.
