Davis Cup: Nick Kyrgios has again opted out of Australia’s Davis Cup team for next month’s finals, leaving Alex de Minaur to lead the nation’s charge in Germany. Kyrgios has skipped the team event since 2019 but would have been a strong addition given his career-best form in recent weeks which included a run to a maiden Grand Slam final at Wimbledon. Follow Tennis NEWS & LIVE updates with InsideSport.IN

“It would have been great to have Nick Kyrgios in the team but unfortunately he was unavailable for this tie,” team captain Lleyton Hewitt said in a media release on Tuesday.

Australia is drawn in Pool C with Germany, France, and Belgium for the Sept. 13-18 finals in Hamburg. Thanasi Kokkinakis, Alexei Popyrin, Jason Kubler, and Wimbledon men’s doubles champions Matt Ebden and Max Purcell were also included in Australia’s six-man team.

Eliminated at the group stage last year, Australia are bidding for their 29th Davis Cup title and first since 2003.
