Kyrgios confirms Davis Cup availability
Nick Kyrgios confirms he's keen to contest the Davis Cup quarter-final in Darwin.
In a huge boost to Australia’s hopes of reaching the semifinals for the first time since 2006, Kyrgios has declared his availability for the last-eight tie in Darwin from 17-19 July.
There had been speculation swirling around the All England Club that the 20-year-old would boycott the quarterfinal in protest to Bernard Tomic’s axing over the weekend.
But less than 24 hours from his fourth-round clash with Frenchman Richard Gasquet, Kyrgios put those rumours to bed.
“As a proud Australian it’s a pleasure and privilege to be able to represent my country in Davis Cup,” he wrote on Facebook on Sunday, Wimbledon’s traditional rest day.
