Why Davis Cup Brings the Best out of Australia's Nick Kyrgios

That is the view of Kyrgios, who said the constant grouping of the pair - often referred to as the "bad boys" of Aussie tennis - is unfair on him.

"It was on a tough clay court and I had a lot of doubts, but Lleyton was in my face telling me to believe and things will turn our way".

"I know that and there's no point trying to convince anyone otherwise".

Dusan Lajovic made a mockery of the absence of Novak Djokovic to give Serbia a shock 1-0 lead.

Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut beat Filip Krajinovic and Nenad Zimonjic 6-1 6-2 7-6 (7-3) in less than two hours on clay in Lille.

In April, Kyrgios, nearly singlehandedly, led Australia past Team USA in the World Group quarter-final of the 2017 Davis Cup. Whoever was going to win that one was going to turn it all around.

"I was proud of how Nick stood up early in that fourth set".

The world No. 18 wasted little time in dispatching Laslo Djere 7-6, 6-3, 6-3 to leave the tie level heading to the doubles match.

As the Davis Cup semifinals get underway on Friday, players from all over the world will be competing for much more than ranking points. France captain Yannick Noah was critical of his own performance. Hewitt won the Davis Cup twice in his career, and played some of his best matches while representing Australia.

But one motivating thought I have is to earn enough money to build a centre for kids who are homeless, having problems at home or don't have the financial means to play sport.

Kokkinakis has been replaced by John Millman, who reached the third round of the US Open last month, beating Australia spearhead Nick Kyrgios in the opening round.

Belgian number one David Goffin declared himself fully fit on Thursday ahead of his country's Davis Cup semi-final against Australia this weekend. Veteran Steve Darcis will feature as Belgium's second singles player.

He corrected the wobble by breaking in the sixth game of the decider and a backhand return on his first match point forced Monteiro into a wild forehand that ballooned long.

"I am bloody proud of John", Hewitt said.

"He put me under real pressure and I had to dig in at times".

"Being home is the only time I get to lead a normal life".

The Frenchman's inconsistent serve came back to haunt him in the last two sets and Lajovic sealed the match at the net with a backhand volley, raising both arms in triumph. I think he's the best captain we've ever had.
