Humbert Guides France To Victory Against Wawrinka’s Switzerland At Davis Cup Finals

Mannarino beats Stricker

Ugo Humbert ensured France made a winning start to its Group B Davis Cup Finals Group Stage campaign on Tuesday when he defeated Stan Wawrinka to guide the 10-time champion to an unassailable 2-0 lead against Switzerland.

The lefty delivered a clean-hitting performance against Wawrinka in Manchester, where he triumphed 6-4, 6-4 in 89 minutes. With his victory, Humbert lifted France to the top of Group B after one tie.

Earlier, Adrian Mannarino defeated #NextGenATP Swiss Dominic Stricker, who upset Stefanos Tsitsipas en route to the fourth round at the US Open last week.

Mannarino struck 22 winners and broke three times to clinch a 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 win in two hours and three minutes. The 35-year-old has now won six of his eight Davis Cup matches. France is aiming to reach the quarter-finals at the Davis Cup Finals since 2018.
