Kubot And Hussey faced an even more difficult task – their competitors turned out to be number one Jimmy Murray from Great Britain and Michael Venus from New Zealand.
The tennis duel began with a very fierce exchange – the Polish and the Dutch even had the opportunity to quickly break their opponents, but in the end they turned the fate of this mini-match and added the first match to their account.
