Indore:

India easily won both the reverse singles matches on Sunday to complete an impressive 5-0 scoreline against Chinese Taipei in the Davis Cup Asia/Oceania group one tie in Indore.

Having taken an unassailable 3-0 lead, the hosts rested their number one player Somdev Devvarman to give debutant Saketh Myneni his maiden Cup experience in the singles.

Myneni, who had partnered Rohan Bopanna to victory in the doubles on Saturday, seized the opportunity by defeating Yang Tsung-Hua 6-1, 6-4 in the first reverse singles.

Yuki Bhambri then brushed aside Peng Hsien-Yin 7-5, 6-0 to record his eighth singles Cup win in nine outings.

India will travel to South Korea in April for the second round tie, where the winner advances into the play-offs for the elite World Group.

India, led by their newly-appointed non-playing captain Anand Amritraj, were without two long-time regulars as Leander Paes opted out of Davis Cup duty for the the entire year and Mahesh Bhupathi was dropped.
