For the Warriors, Pierre-Hughes Herbert featured in three matches and won two of them but his team ended up on the losing side.
      
Warriors' win in the men's doubles had an Indian connection as Leander Paes combined with Herbert to edge past the home combination of Rohan Bopanna and Ivan Dodig 6-5 via a
shootout. The scores were level 5-5, forcing a shootout which was another intense affair as Paes and Herbert won 7-6.
    
"Herbert has a phenomenal future ahead. He is a student of the game and that is what I like about him the most," said Paes, who also thanked the sparse crowd for coming out to
support the players.
     
Before that defeat, Indian Aces won the opening mixed doubles and women's singles to move ahead 12-6. Sania Mirza and Rohan Bopanna were tested before they prevailed 6-4 against Mirjana Lucic-Baroni and Herbert.
