Kyrgios: Tomic 'not making sense', and 'has lost his way'

Lucas Pouille and Jo Wilfried Tsonga will lead the French in their opening two singles rubbers

Earlier in the day, Belgian number one David Goffin beat John Millman 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 6-3 7-5. It doesn't come (with) much more intensity than this but I've had big matches and I've had big experiences before that I'll draw upon. 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.

"But we want to be in a position where Stolts (Jason Stoltenberg) and I and Tony Roche can make tough decisions because we want guys that are playing well and putting their hand up to play for our country".

"You'd also be wrong if you tried to lump me in the same category as Bernard Tomic, as Kitty Chiller and tons of others have over time", he wrote. I left it all out there. World No. 12 Goffin predictably edged the first point of the semifinal, being played on clay in Brussels, despite suffering an early wobble. David is crucial to his team.

However, Kyrgios produced his best tennis of the match to claim the final two sets for the loss of just three games and seal a 6-3 3-6 6-7 (5-7) 6-1 6-2 success to keep Australia firmly in the hunt for a first Davis Cup crown since 2003.

"I can honestly say winning a Grand Slam would not make me the happiest person on earth". In World Group play-offs, Marin Cilic will lead 2016 finalist Croatia against Columbia, Kazakhstan play Argentina, and Japan take on Brazil.

"'Rusty' (Hewitt) has helped me a lot", said Kyrgios. "I'm not really too sure about what to expect in Brussels, but I'm sure the crowd will be really one-sided". Ramkumar Ramanathan's four-set win over Brayden Schnur got India off to a flying start.

"I did everything right preparing. I've got a great team behind me that'll be playing each point with me and I think that's the beauty of this competition".

A huge net cord at break point down went the way of Kyrgios at the start of the decider and, perhaps sensing it was his day, the Australian showcased his talent - encapsulated with a double-handed backhand victor with both feet off the floor en route to a gutsy victory.

Captain Lleyton Hewitt said Millman's late call-up follows his strong form over recent weeks. With home-court advantage against a Sebian side missing Novak Djokovic, the Frenchmen are considerable favorites.

Serbia began the day level at 1-1 following Friday's singles rubbers, with world number 80 Dusan Lajovic having secured a shock victory over 22nd-ranked Lucas Pouille.
