Here’s what’s in store today with Australia to make headlines with the night session featuring Alex de Minaur in men’s singles against Britain’s Cameron Norrie and Zoe Hives to take to the court in women’s rubber against Britain’s No. 2 Katie Swan .
It was supposed to be Nick Kyrgios’ first match since his Wimbledon exploits in Australia, but the world No. 22 withdrew on Wednesday – less than 24 hours before the event started – with an ankle injury he plans to heal ahead of the Australian Open.
It was met with a chilly reception from his Australian team-mates when asked about it at the team’s press conference on Wednesday. They said they only found out about Kyrgio’s withdrawal 10 minutes before the media.
I don’t think Kyrgio’s Instagram post from Darling Harbor would have gone down too well in the Australian dressing room a few hours later.
