Nick Kyrgios holds nerve to draw Australia level with Belgium

Nick Kyrgios holds nerve to draw Australia level with Belgium

The same occurred in Australia in 2010.

Any away tie is a hard one, but playing in front of a boisterous Belgian crowd on an indoor clay surface will certainly pose a serious challenge to Hewitt's charges.

"We are not over confident, we've got an enormous amount of respect for this team (Serbia) which has a lot of very good players", said Pouille, who was beaten in the fourth round at the US Open. His most recent loss at the U.S Open caused by a lack of movement thanks to knee soreness. 'It's always important in Davis Cup'.

"It would have been great to take a two sets to love lead".

World No.20 Kyrgios will take on the experienced Steve Darcis in the second singles rubber. Switzerland are without Roger Federer or Stan Wawrinka in a tie with Belarus, Canada minus injured Milos Raonic host India, Germany face Portugal, the Czech Republic clash with the Netherlands, and Russian Federation play Hungary.

Trump said that the attack was carried out by "a loser terrorist" and urged the U.S.to be proactive in combating terrorism. President Donald Trump responded to a terror attack in a London underground station on Friday by promoting his travel ban.


John Peers and Jordan Thompson beat Rubens Bemelmans and Arthur de Greef 6-3 6-4 6-0 on clay in Brussels.

"In Davis Cup doubles you usually see marathon five-setters. It (Davis Cup) is my number one priority so to get that win is a bit of relief".

Steve Darcis has the power to turn this tie in favour of Belgium.

Chen Ti and Jason Jung yesterday kept alive Taiwan's bid to stave off relegation from Davis Cup Asia/Oceania Group I with a straight-sets victory in the doubles rubber at the Yang Gu Tennis Park in South Korea.

Nick Kyrgios has ripped apart the veneer of friendship between him and fellow Australian Bernard Tomic, saying his former Davis Cup teammate has "lost his way" and "doesn't make sense".

He praised the plan that passed for sending $639 million more to K-12 schools while also slightly reducing property taxes. Since the budget passed without changes, it will go directly to Walker rather than back to the Senate.


Tsonga, the world No. 18, is playing the Davis Cup for the first time in over year with his last appearance coming in the 2016 quarterfinal win over the Czech Republic.

As it always is, the doubles rubber will again be a key rubber and the Aussies have the decided advantage with doubles specialist John Peers at their disposal, the world's second ranked doubles player.

Saturday's action was rained off with Japan 2-0 ahead after Friday's opening singles. Australia will fancy their chances in the doubles, meaning that if Kyrgios can win his two singles matches, Australia will be moving on to the final.

In the other semifinal in Brussels, David Goffin produced a hard-fought win against Australian John Millman to earn the hosts an early lead.
