The team led by Lleyton Hewitt is one of the most fearsome on the international scene and one everyone wants to avoid. Added to the strength and respect imposed by their captain is the talent of players like Nick Kyrgios and young Alex de Minaur. They have the challenge of overcoming Croatia and Hungary in an explosive Group D.
- Kyrgios and de Minaur are among Hewitt’s top singles players; both world-class and each with a strong character, they can take on the best in the world. Other players in the top 100 include John Millman, Jordan Thompson, James Duckworth and Alexei Popyrin.
- Australia also have a strong tradition in doubles, with current specialists including John Peers and Luke Saville.
- As a player, Lleyton Hewitt was world No.1 and was committed to the Davis Cup, playing for the team on 43 occasions in a total of 80 matches. He won two Davis Cup titles and was a finalist on two other occasions.
- Australia beat Brazil in the Qualifiers in a battle that ended with a 3-1 victory for the Aussies. In the Finals, they will face Croatia and Hungary in Group D in the hope of reaching the quarter-finals again, which they achieved in 2019 before being denied a place in the semi-finals by Canada.
- With 28 Davis Cup titles, Australia are second only to the United States who have 32.
