The Australian combo played another solid doubles match albeit not as dominant as their previous one. They faced a Spanish combination that proved quite tricky in this match although the Aussie prevailed in the end.

They finally did so at 4-4 taking a 5-4 lead but dropped the serve immediately. A furious Kyrgios lead the charge to finish off the opening set 7-5 with some amazing play. Things were a bit easier in the second set as they were able to find a breakthrough quicker this time around.
Taking a 3-2 lead Kyrgios and Kokkinakis had a chance to make it a double lead break but failed to do so with the Spaniards keeping it close. They actually broke back to make it 4-4 but the Aussies went ahead once more 5-4. They faced 0-30 when they tried to close out the match and they were able to wiggle their way out of that to avoid three sets.
