RadioNZ.CO.NZ – Guam has secured its first ever victory in the Davis Cup tennis competition, sweeping Mongolia 3-0 in Asia/Oceania Zone Group Four on Tuesday.

Christopher Cajigan was leading 6-3, 3-0 when his opponent Baatar Oyunbat retired from the opening singles rubber.

Daniel Llarenas clinched the tie, coming from a set down and 3-5 down in the third – saving two match points – to beat Munkhbaatar Badrakh 5-7, 6-2, 7-5.

Mason Caldwell and Jean Pierre Huynh completed the clean sweep with a comfortable 6-3, 6-1 doubles victory.

Having bounced back from an opening defeat by Malaysia, the US Territory will face Turkmenistan on Wednesday, who beat Tajikistan before losing to Bahrain.
