Kyrgios dumped from Davis Cup team

Tennis wild child Nick Kyrgios has been dumped for Australia’s Davis Cup semi-final showdown with Andy Murray’s Great Britain.

While Bernard Tomic has been recalled after being suspended from Australia’s epic semi-final win over Kazakhstan, Kyrgios’ turbulent year continues with his non-selection for the country’s biggest tie in a decade.

Australian captain Wally Masur on Tuesday effectively included Tomic, the country’s top-ranked player with an impressive 14-2 win-loss record in the century-old teams’ event, in a straight swap for Kyrgios.

Cup stalwart Lleyton Hewitt and his doubles partner Sam Groth, the two heroes from the 3-2 comeback win over the Kazakhs in Darwin in July, and teenage Thanasi Kokkinakis retain their places in the four-man team.

Australia take on Britain in Glasgow in a three-day indoor hardcourt tie starting next Friday, with the winners to face either Argentina or Belgium in the November 27-29 final.
