PHOTOS: Rafael Nadal beats Pablo Cuevas at ATP Cup in Perth

World No. 1 Rafael Nadal defeated Pablo Cuevas 6-2, 6-1 to give Spain an insurmountable 2-0 lead against Uruguay, with doubles still to play.

It has been a great match. I played better than the other day. It was a positive victory against an opponent I respect.

I am super happy now with this victory. We are able to win another tie.

In the doubles next is very important because we will have a chance to make it into the quarter-finals.

Earlier, Roberto Bautista Agut earned his second victory of the 2020 ATP Tour season by beating Franco Roncadelli 6-1, 6-2.

The Spanish squad, which is captained by Rafa’s coach Franciso Roig, will face Japan on Wednesday in their final Group B matches.

The winner from each group will be joined by the two best second places in the quarterfinals of the tournament for three knock-out rounds until a champion team is crowned.
