It was arguably his best performance in a campaign that has also seen him beat Novak Djokovic at Indian Wells in March and more recently Rafael Nadal in Cincinnati. "Hopefully I will be able to win it with theses lads".

David Goffin, like Kyrgios, performs well in Davis Cup so if the two meet in the 4th rubber on Sunday, it would definitely be worth watching.

Chen Ti and Jason Jung yesterday kept alive Taiwan's bid to stave off relegation from Davis Cup Asia/Oceania Group I with a straight-sets victory in the doubles rubber at the Yang Gu Tennis Park in South Korea.

Kyrgios, who said this week he was still "not taking tennis seriously enough", claimed that the Davis Cup was his "number one priority" this year.

Australia will bid for a place in the final for the first time since their run to the title in 2003.

There was a minor upset in the opening match-up, in which Dusan Lajovic scored an unexpected 6-1, 3-6, 7-6, 7-6 success over world No. 22 Lucas Pouille.

DOUBLES specialist John Peers could prove to be the key for Australia in this weekend's Davis Cup semi-final against Belgium.

That's followed by French number one Jo-Wilfried Tsonga crossing swords with Davis Cup debutant Laslo Djere, the highest-rated Serbian at No.80 in the world.

The 6-3, 6-4, 6-0 victory by doubles world No. 2 John Peers and his partner Jordan Thompson over Ruben Bemelmans and Arthur de Greef leaves the Belgians needing to come from behind to reach the final, as they did in 2015.

"It was an exciting tie and the mindset was flawless", said France team captain Yannick Noah.

We've come back from 2-1 down before, when everybody was doubting us.

"We've known each other for a very long time, so that makes getting down together at the same end of the court pretty easy", Peers said.

"Maybe it's time for (coach) Sebastian Grosjean to work with someone more dedicated than me".

Looking to bounce back from a stinging defeat by France in February and return to the competition's top tier, Japan are without former US Open finalist Kei Nishikori, who has ruled himself out for the rest of the season with a wrist injury.

"The biggest thing for Nick was to stay in the moment", Hewitt said. "We have full belief in that he can do the job for us".

Tsonga, who had chose to skip the Davis Cup this year, changed his mind and made a successful return to the French team.
