New Delhi, 21 April 2011 |

The Australian Junior Davis Cup team has stormed into the quarterfinals of the Asia Oceania qualifying event in New Delhi, India.

The second seeded Australian team of Thanasi Kokkinakis (SA), Nick Kyrgios (ACT), Blake Mott (NSW) and Captain Milo Bradley posted 3-0 wins over Singapore and the Philippines and won their singles matches against Hong Kong during the round robin stage of the competition.

Today the boys face No.4 seed Chinese Taipei in a must-win quarterfinal which would ensure a place in the world final to be held in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, in September.

Team captain Milo Bradley is pleased with the progress of the team so far.

“We had a good few days training before the event so the boys could acclimatize to the smog, heat, food and training schedule, and it’s been great to get out and compete successfully ,” Bradley said.

“The boys did a good job today. I asked them for a no-nonsense approach and they gave it to me. They were all business, competed well and got the job done. If they can keep up this standard they should do well over the next few days.”
