The South African men’s tennis team coasted to a convincing victory without dropping a set in their two-day Davis Cup World Group Two tie against Venezuela at the Forest Hills Stadium in New York.

Replacing regular doubles player Ruan Roelofse on Sunday, Lloyd Harris joined Raven Klaasen in the third match of the tie, wrapping up the win with two fixtures to spare.

Harris and Philip Henning having won their singles matches the day before, the in-form South African number one paired up with Klaasen and they romped to a 6-2, 6-4 victory over Dimitri Badra and Luis David Martinez.

Roelofse went on to defeat Badra 6-4, 7-6 in a dead rubber clash that was initially scheduled as a reverse singles contest, with the SA team earning a 4-nil victory.
