Japan's Yuichi Sugita returns a shot against Indonesia's Christopher Rungkat during their men's singles match at the Davis Cup Asia-Oceania Zone Group I first-round tie tennis tournement in Tokyo on February 3, 2013. Japan's Sugita and Yasutaka Uchiyama romped to a convincing 5-0 win over Indonesia in the Davis Cup Asia-Oceania Zone Group I first-round tie.
