ATP Cup : Spain Win Match Despite Nadal Absence With Injury

Last year's ATP Cup finalists Spain suffered a blow ahead of their group b tie against hosts Australia when World Number two Rafa Nadal pulled out with a lower back problem, but Roberto Bautista Agut and Pablo Carreno Busta did not let Spain feel the absence of the 20-times Grand Slam winner, defeating Alex De Minaur and John Millman in their respective singles matches to settle the tie.
