Spain enjoyed a second straight win in the Hopman Cup teams tennis in Perth on Sunday night with a 2-1 win over France, spoiling the tournament debut of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Mathilde Johansson.
Tsonga began with promises as he beat Fernando Verdasco 7-5 6-3 but Johansson lost to Anabel Medina Garrigues 6-3 6-2 to leave the scoreline knotted at 1-1.
The Spanish earned the win in the doubles, claiming a 6-3 6-3 victory as Tsonga played a first career mixed match.
"It was a difficult match against great players, we knew it would be tough," said Verdasco. "Anabel has won both of the ties for us."
Garrigues said she is keen for three days off after two straight days of matches.
"Feel pain in all parts of my body, I'm glad for recovery time.
I'm really happy how I've played these last two days," she said.
The Spaniards opened with a 2-1 win over South Africa on Saturday.
