Kyrgios to lead Aussie Davis Cup charge

A reinvigorated Nick Kyrgios is loving the team environment in the Australian camp as they prepare for their Davis Cup semi-final against Belgium.

Kyrgios, Jordan Thompson,  Thanasi Kokkinakis and John Peers are attempting to qualify for a Davis Cup final for the first time since 2003.

A lot rests of the performance of Kyrgios, who’s the highest ranked Aussie in the team, and believes this is Australia’s best chance to get to the top of the game.

He has a tough task in front of him playing Belgium star and world number 12 David Goffin in the singles.

But Kyrgios is confident.

In his short career, his lack of desire to play the game has regularly been linked to poor form, but that’s not the case with the Davis Cup.

The mercurial Australian said Davis Cup captain, Lleyton Hewitt has been an “unbelievable support” in getting him to enjoy the game again.

“There have been times where I haven’t been doing too well mentally and he’s always been there,” he said.

“Davis Cup’s done wonders for me this year,  it’s really made me find that love again for being with the guys and just having some fun and knowing that tennis isn’t all bad, you can have some fun with it.”
