France loses its duel with Australia after a doubles defeat in the Davis Cup

France lost its match against Australia in the group stage of the Davis Cup 1-2, this Thursday after the defeat of Nicolas Mahut and Edouard Roger-Vasselin in the doubles match against Matt Ebden and Max Purcell 7-5, 6-3.

The Blues, who beat Switzerland (3-0) on Tuesday, face Great Britain in Manchester on Sunday with the hope of being among the top teams to qualify for the Davis Cup finals in November in Malaga, Spain . . .

In Group C in Spain, the Czech Republic, which had already beaten the Spanish team 3-0 on Wednesday, repeated its victory this Thursday against South Korea.

The Serbian Novak Djokovic, whose Serbia will face Spain on Friday, expressed this Thursday about the absence of Carlos Alcaraz: “Maybe you are disappointed because he doesn’t play for Spain, because he is 20 years old and I am 36, and because of…” like “He’s tired and I’m not,” he said ironically.

“It is important to understand that he still has a lot of time ahead of him. Even if he is 20 years old, that doesn’t mean he is a Superman,” added the new US Open winner.

One of Thursday’s surprises was the Netherlands’ victory over the United States in Group D, while defending champions Canada beat Sweden and remained unbeaten in Group A.
