The team

Australia defeated Bosnia Herzegovina in the Qualifiers with a new generation of players. Teenager Alexei Popyrin got a wildcard into the first Grand Slam of 2019, and was the last surviving Australian male singles player. Fellow teenage team-mate Alex de Minaur also caught the eye there before falling to eventual runner-up Rafael Nadal in the third round of the Australian Open.
