“The atmosphere in the crowd was amazing today,” said Cabal. “They’re both great tennis players, so it was a tough match, but we’re happy to win and we’ll see how the draw evolves.”

Cabal/Farah will play Rohan Bopanna and Denis Shapovalov or Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury for a place in the quarter-finals.
