London, UK, 15 November 2016 |

John Peers and Henri Kontinen won their opening match at the World Tour Finals in straight sets to move into equal first place in their round-robin group.

The Australian-Finnish pairing beat Spaniards Feliciano and Marc Lopez 6-3 7-6(7) in the first match of Monday evening’s session on London.

It was an exemplary serving performance from the duo, who did not face a break point during the one hour, 18 minute match.

They sit on top of their round-robin group alongside Raven Klaasen and Rajeev Ram, who lost exactly the same number of games as Peers and Kontinen in defeating top seeds Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

Peers and Kontinen will face Klaasen and Ranm in their next encounter, scheduled as the first match of the Wednesday afternoon session at The O2.
