Saturday, 06 February 2021

Michael Venus and Marcus Daniell have been beaten in the quarter final at the ATP Tour's Great Ocean Road Open in Melbourne.

They have lost in straight sets 6-2 6-3 in 57 minutes to Croatia’s Ivan Dodig and Slovakia’s Filip Polasek.

Venus and Daniell were hoping for a deep run together in what will be their only tournament together before the Tokyo Olympics if they qualify later this year.

The Kiwis now join their respective partners Venus with Aussie John Peers and Daniell with Austrian Philip Oswald for the Australian Open which starts at Melbourne Park on Monday.
