40 years old Feliciano López gets a first top 10 win in 3.5 years, beating #5 Andrey Rublev 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.<br><br>ESP 1-0 RUS<br><br>Wow.

The two matched up again in doubles with Lopez and Marcel Granollers facing Rublev and Aslan Karatsev.

Spain looked ready to pull a second upset with a first-set victory, but the Russian team came from behind for the 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 win. Adding a singles win for Daniil Medvedev, and Russia was able to advance to the quarterfinal.

Germany clinched first in Group F with a 2-1 win over Austria, thanks in part to a win from Jan-Lennard Struff. Though he couldn't defeat Serbia's Novak Djokovic in his first match of this event, he bounced back against Dennis Novak for a key victory.

Serbia finished second in the group but will advance after going 9-6 on sets.

Colombia and the United States were only playing for pride after Italy had already clinched Group E, but it was Colombia that earned the win after the doubles match was canceled midway through the first set.
