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.

The top two from each pool will advance to the semi-finals, with the two winning teams promoted to Group Three.
