Australian Open matches could be suspended over bushfires

Djokovic said both he and Monfils had been affected by the humidity on Pat Rafter Arena. Djokovic had to be treated in the second set above his right elbow and lost a point for an intervention - when the French asked for a volley check on the net - before he and Viktor Troicki Nicolas Mahut and Edouard Roger-Vasselin with 6: 3 and 6 defeated -7 (7-5), 10-3 at 00:37 in Brisbane. Serbia leads Group A with two wins.

During an on-court interview which took place after the match, Nadal said his three decades atop the ATP rankings makes him feel old.

"Yes Maria Sharapova, I would like to match your $25k donation to double the aid sent to these communities", Djokovic said on social media. "Thanks to the people for staying to nearly 1 a.m.to support us".

"People from my team have spoken to Craig Tiley, they are obviously tracking the situation every day as it is evolving", he said.

Rafael Nadal of Spain in action against Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay during their match at the ATP Cup in Perth on Monday. Spain now have two wins from two starts in Group B and will have to face up to undefeated Japan to determine first place and automatic qualification for the Sydney playoffs. "Everything was too short", said Nadal. "He had two great victories and with very comfortable results, so it's going to be a big challenge and I hope to be ready to play at the level that I need to be successful", Nadal said of Japan. I was very pleased with the way I kind of weathered the storm'.

"I think I played my best tennis and very happy about this", he said of his win against the Georgian where his pinpoint accuracy rattled Basilashvili.

World number four Dominic Thiem bounced back from his season-opening loss against Borna Coric by defeating Diego Schwartzman 6-3 7-6 (3) to help set up a 3-0 win for Austria over against Argentina in Sydney. "I think at the end I played really good tennis".

The unbeaten Croats are sitting pretty, spearheaded by former US Open champion Marin Cilic who eased past Poland's Kacper Zuk in straight sets - his second victory in a row.

Cilic, who has a career-high ranking of No 3 but slipped to 38 after an injury-shortened 2019 season, has now won both his singles matches in Sydney at the new worldwide men's team event.

A win would push Serbia to the top of Group A with one more match to come in the round-robin stage, against Chile.

Yoshihito Nishioka routed higher-ranked Pablo Cuevas 6-0, 6-1 and veteran Go Soeda thrashed Martin Cuevas, Pablo's younger brother, 6-1, 6-3 before a tighter doubles encounter. "Some of it is out of our hands as well, already having, well, taking the loss against Serbia".

For his part, after his spectacular debut in the tournament against Georgian Aleksandre Metreveli (6-0, 6-0), Bautista returned to deploy his superiority in Perth, where he hardly needed 57 minutes To sign a new win.
