The inaugural event is taking place across Australia.

Great Britain has improved its chances of qualifying for the knock-out stage of the inaugural ATP Cup after a 3-0 cleansweep against Moldova in their round-robin tie.

Daniel Evans repeated his form from his victory on Sunday against world number 11 David Goffin on Sunday, wrapping up the tie with a 6-2 6-2 win over Radu Albot in Sydney.

The world number 42 saved multiple breaks in the second set to lead 3-1, his passing shots proving too much for the Moldovan.

Earlier,Β Cameron Norrie beat Moldova's Alexander Cozbinov in straight sets 6-2 6-2.

The 24-year-old's victory came relatively easily, despite Cozbinov fighting back with several good points in the second set.

But the Briton's stamina was too strong, with a double fault handing Norrie the break 5-2 and he served comfortably for the match.

The final word went to Jamie Murray and Joe Salisbury who beat Albot and Alexander Cozbinov 6-2 6-3.

The Britons broke their opponents early to take a 4-2 lead before Murray closed out the first set 6-2.

Murray broke again early in the second set, a forehand winner up the line taking Britain to 2-0 and delighting team captain Tim Henman on the court's edge.

A pair of aces from Salisbury took the Britons to 5-2 before Murray held his serve to win the match.

The tie victory means Britain could top Group C if Belgium defeats Bulgaria 2-1, ensuring Henman and his charges entry to the quarter-finals.

But if Bulgaria wins the tie, Britain will need results in other rounds to go their way in to secure a runner-place in the next round.
