  • Great Britain knocked out of ATP Cup by Australia

Khachanov was a straightforward 6-2 7-6 (4) victor against Guido Pella but there was no shortage of drama in the clash between Medvedev and Diego Schwartzman.

Tsitsipas returned for the deciding doubles but went down 3-6 6-3 (17-15) as Greece suffered their second loss.

"I didn't have anything near me to hit at than the chair ... so just hit one thing with the racket", he said. "I got a code violation which I deserve - the second one is no question".

Nick Kyrgios and Alex De Minaur collapsed to the court after clinching a 2-1 quarter-final victory for Australia that knocked Great Britain out of the inaugural ATP Cup.

Revelling in the team environment, Kyrgios had given Australia a flying start with an emphatic 6-2 6-2 win over Cameron Norrie in Thursday's opening match before Evans denied de Minaur 7-6 (7-4) 4-6 7-6 (7-2) in the match of the tournament. He had set point on serve but was broken in a game lasting 8½ minutes. But they fought back so strongly from that agonising defeat against Bulgaria that they ended up topping Group C. And then, on Thursday morning, it took a sprinkling of magic from Kyrgios and his doubles partner Alex de Minaur to dump them out.

"That's why I play sport is for occasions like that". Britain then held four match points in the decisive doubles rubber, only to fail to convert them. "Just making it through to the semi-final, the first-ever ATP Cup in that type of fashion, was pretty special... we genuinely care for each other, and were genuinely just so ecstatic to get through".

"You're the underdog going into any match against Rafa and we all know the intensity and quality of play that he's going to bring, he brings it day in and day out", Hewitt said.

"It was important for him to stay mentally strong, keep calm and see what's coming".

"All the matches were won in singles, which is unbelievable, and I think only Spain did the same so far".

Now the Russians will meet the victor of Friday's quarterfinal between Serbia and Canada.

The celebrating duo embraced on the court before Kyrgios threw de Minaur on his shoulder and paraded him around the court to the delight of the jubilant Sydney crowd. "But it was awesome".

"Today was probably one of the best moments of my career, definitely". The US Open finalist hit 24 winners and made just two unforced errors in the 6-3 6-1 rout in one hour to ensure Russian Federation clinched the tie against the United States ahead of the doubles. Facing a match point in the doubles draw, he removed a back-to-back victor from a service down a narrow gap.

On de Minaur's serve, Murray had an easy smash to an open court which could have given GB a chance to serve for the match.

"I missed that shot basically on top of the net, which was ridiculous", Murray said. "It hurt a bit, but I enjoyed every minute of it out there".
