Casey Hoole finished the week undefeated after winning a high quality opening singles rubber 6-3 7-5.

Philip Sekulic followed suit in the second singles rubber, beating Tanapatt Nirundorn 6-4 6-1 to give Australia an unassailable 2-0 lead in the tie.

Hoole and Edward Vo then set the seal on the victory, beating their Thai opponents 1-6 6-3 10-5 to finish the week on a high.
