Davis Cup campaign ends in defeat

Hard-fought defeat: Tariq Simons

Bermuda concluded their Davis Cup Americas Group 3 campaign with a defeat, going down 3-0 to Cuba in their final Pool B encounter in Costa Rica, yesterday.

Coming off the back of their first win at the competition, with a 2-1 success over winless Trinidad and Tobago a day previously, Bermuda would have been hopeful of building on momentum.

However, it was not to be as Richard Mallory went down in straight sets against Maykol Ponte Suarez 6-3, 6-0, before Tariq Simons fared slightly better, losing 6-1, 6-3 to Osmel Rivera Granja.

Gavin Manders and Neal Towlson them teamed up in the doubles, suffering a 6-4, 6-3 defeat against Yoan Perez and Rivera Granja

Bermuda finished fifth in Pool B after five defeats and one win from their five round-robin encounters.
