Davis Cup: Lleyton Hewitt & Sam Groth save the day for Team Australia!

After day 1 of the Davis Cup Team Australia found themselves in a bit of trouble and in the headlines again with Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis both losing their first singles matches on the Friday to give Kazakhstan a 2-0 lead and one win away from the semi-final. Only 8 times in Davis Cup history in the past has a team come from 0-2 down to win 3-2.

On the Saturday it was over to the experience of Lleyton Hewitt and Sam Groth to keep Australia in the tie and they certainly did that. Groth and Hewitt secured a 6-4 7-6 6-2 win against Golubev and Nedovyesov.

In the early hours of the morning it was up to Groth and Hewitt to do their bit and they certainly did that! Sam Groth levelled the tie at 2-2 with a 6-3 7-6 4-6 7-6 win against Mikhail Kukushkin and then Lleyton Hewitt who is retiring after next yearโ€™s Australian Open saved the day once again for Australia with a 7-6 6-2 6-3 win against Aleksandr Nedovyesov.
