He Did It! Kyrgios Leads Australia To Davis Cup Quarterfinal Victory

He Did It! Kyrgios Leads Australia To Davis Cup Quarterfinal Victory

Thompson won in 3hr2min to post a 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (7-4), 6-4 win against the United States at Pat Rafter Arena on Friday.

If Belgium wins their quarter final against Italy, they will host the semifinal, if Italy comes back to claim victory, they will travel to Australia.

Success allowed Sock to gain a measure of revenge on Thompson after his surprise singles defeat to the 22-year-old, and he told daviscup.com: "Jordan played great yesterday, he deserved to win, he was the better player".

"To beat a full-strength, quality USA team, this is one of our best wins in a long time".

"The way Thommo went out there and backed himself under pressure, that's how I dreamt of his match playing out and I didn't think it was probably going to happen", Hewitt said.

Australia' s Nick Kyrgios played John Isner in the second match of the series, and dominated, winning in straight sets over the American, now ranked 23 in the world.

"I've beaten every other singles player, so I feel confident whoever I go up against". Australia now stands one win away from a spot in the semi-finals.

"He (Isner) is one of the best players in the world".

Johnson was shaky in his service game at 2-3, which the Australians won with a forehand return victor by Groth, and Sock was broken to tie the match up at two sets each when Peers produced consecutive winners.

The Australian comfortably took the second set but there were signs of frustration again in the third as he fell 1-4 behind before responding with five games in a row to secure victory.

Visiting captain Jim Courier continued to mix things up on Sunday and sent Querrey in for world number 15 Sock, a gambit that initially looked like succeeding in unsettling Kyrgios.

But the U.S. soon clicked, firing back to win the second and third sets as Sock rediscovered his touch and his confidence.

Kyrgios saved a set point at 5-6 in the first after having been down a break of serve at 2-4. When I was in the States I always knew I had to come here and play two big matches.

Lacking his opponent's court speed, Isner swung for the fences and scrapped to within two points of forcing another set, but two fierce returns off the Australian's racquet stole the momentum and set up Kyrgios for his match-winning 20th ace. "It's up to them", Hewitt said.
