Kyrgios first up in Davis Cup
Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic will form Australia's singles attack on Friday on the first day of Davis Cup play between Australia and Slovakia in Sydney.
Nick Kyrgios will lead Australia into battle in this weekend’s Davis Cup World Group Play-off against Slovakia in Sydney.
The Australian No.1 has been drawn to play Slovakian No.2 Andrej Martin in Friday’s opening singles rubber at the Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre.
Bernard Tomic will play Slovakian No.1 Jozef Kovalik in the second singles match before Australian pair Sam Groth and John Peers face Martin and Igor Zelenay in Saturday’s doubles rubber.
Kyrgios is expected to face Kovalik in the first of the reverse singles on Sunday, before Tomic takes on Martin.
“I want to get the job done which hopefully get us back in the World Group,” Kyrgios said at the draw ceremony on Thursday, staged at Sydney Harbour.
