Greekspor were also unable to score points against Croatia. He lost 2-0 to Borna Coric (7-6, 6-4) in Australia. Coric ranks 37th in the world rankings, compared to 23rd place for Greek Spor.
After a subsequent match, Ross (WTA-51) had to play against Donna Vekic, No. 24 in the world. The Dutch lost in 3 sets. The score was 3-6, 6-3 and 1-6 for the Croatian. As a result, the Netherlands are now 2-0 down. However, he can still qualify for the quarter-finals.
Then Schurz and Kohlhoff have to beat the duo of Ivan Dodig/Donna Vekic. Vekic already has three sets in his legs against the Russians.
This is also the last match of the group. If he had won, the Netherlands would have qualified for the quarter-finals, which will start on Wednesday, January 3. However, the Dutch team can continue, but it depends on the results of the other groups.
