Kyrgios Beats Isner to Give Aussies Commanding Davis Cup Lead

Kyrgios Beats Isner to Give Aussies Commanding Davis Cup Lead”

Nick Kyrgios will have the chance to win the Davis Cup tie for Australia on Sunday after the US bounced back strongly to claim the doubles rubber and keep the quarter-final alive on Brisbane's Pat Rafter Arena.

The victor of the this quarterfinal will go on to play either Belgium or Italy in the semifinals, to be held in September.

"There is no greater honour", Thompson said after the match.

"I'm sure he'd much rather play in a dead rubber", he said.

The right-hander had won one match only since the February tie and also suffered an ankle injury, but has rallied when representing his country, pointing to a big tattoo on his right biceps of the Australian Olympic logo, inked after his Rio Games campaign a year ago.

Thompson, ranked 79th in the world, held his nerve to see off a faltering Sock 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (7/4), 6-4 in front of a raucous crowd on Pat Rafter Arena at the Queensland Tennis Centre.

Thompson remains undefeated in the Davis Cup after winning both of his singles rubbers in February's meeting with the Czech Republic at Kooyong. Sam Groth and John Peers are scheduled to play the American pair of Sam Querrey and Steve Johnson.

"I'm really proud of both boys, but there's still a bloody long way to go", he said.

Courier said his team would rally around Sock and noted that his United States team had lost to Croatia a year ago from two matches up after the first day.

"I just tried to wear him down, and I thought I was fit enough to do that", Thompson said. Peers is the No. 2-ranked doubles players in the world, and Groth is one of those big men who is often more effective in doubles than singles.

"I've been playing great tennis".

"The way Thommo went out there and backed himself under pressure, that's how I dreamt of his match playing out", an elated Hewitt told the press.

Thompson knows what he is up against to give Australia the crucial first point in the best-of-five match tie.

In the third, Isner saved a match point serving at 5-6 and lost the last three points again.

Sydney-born Thompson upset Spaniard David Ferrer in the Brisbane International at the same venue earlier this year but Sock - who has been in stellar form this year - represents by far his biggest scalp to date.
