Spain, Japan, Australia up 2-0 in Davis Cup WGroup playoffs

Spain, Japan, Australia up 2-0 in Davis Cup WGroup playoffs

Kyrgios suffered minor hiccups in the first and third sets, dropping his service game before responding immediately to claim a break of his own.

Nick Kyrgios has recovered from a hip injury and apparently buried the hatchet with Bernard Tomic after he was named in Australia's Davis Cup team to play Slovakia today.

After suffering a shock loss to world No115 Aleksandr Nedovyesov in Darwin, then-Australian captain Wally Masur replaced the temperamental youngster with Sam Groth for the must-win reverse singles.

Sam Groth (front) of Australia returns the ball to players of Solvakia during the Davis Cup World Group playoff in Sydney, Australia, Sept. 17, 2016.

"It was a great feeling", he said after securing his first point for Australia in two years.

"A ideal start. We know it's not over quite yet, but the boys did really well today", Australia captain Lleyton Hewitt told reporters.

"If we're unseeded and we play one of the top eight nations, I'd be looking at the possibility of around six of those being home ties and two of them being away ties", Hewitt said.

Nick Kyrgios beat world No.127-ranked Andrej Martin 6-3 6-2 6-4 in the opening singles rubber before Bernard Tomic outclassed world No.123 Jozef Kovalik 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 6-4.

"I'm only playing for another four, five years", he mumbled when asked about Australia's long-term prospects with he and Tomic spearheading the team. We were in the semi-finals against the United Kingdom and we had a chance there.

Kyrgios opted only to have running repairs, with tissues placed in his nostril during a changeover before he completed his straight-sets win.

"I'm not trying to do a Novak at the US Open", Kyrgios said. I can't play with blood coming out of my nose.

"For me, there's nothing that can match Davis Cup", Tomic said.

"I mean, I want to play".

"I would love nothing more one day than to be a Davis Cup champion with these guys and it's all going to take a big team - not just myself".

"I think as you get to that point where I am - top 20, top 25 - you have to play less tournaments and be really focused and fit for all the tournaments you play".

The Australians lost their momentum and were unable to withstand the resilient Slovakians, who made a contest of it with a convincing tie-break victory in the third.
