After taking a flawless victory against Belgium, Australia currently sit atop the Group C table and will now prepare to take on France in what can be a tricky encounter. However, the men from down under displayed a solid performance on Tuesday as they beat the Belgians 3-0. Jason Kubler was the first to take the court for the Aussies against Zizou Bergs and won 6-4, 1-6, 6-3. Alex di Minaur faced David Goffin next and picked up a straightforward 6-2, 6-2 victory. The day ended with doubles action as the team of Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell beat Sander Gille and Joran Vliegen 6-1, 6-3.

The team currently sits in third place on the group C table and will be hoping to bring about a change when they play next. Adrian Mannarino was the only one who won his match against Germany’s Oscar Otte while Benjamin Bonzi and the team of Nicolas Mahut and Arthur Rinderknech fell to defeat.
