Tomic Highly Doubtful To Return to Davis Cup
SYDNEY (Dispatches) Australian Davis Cup captain Lleyton Hewitt said Tuesday it is “highly doubtful” Bernard Tomic would play for Australia again, after the troubled tennis star this week declared the team could not win the event without him.
Speaking ahead of their World Group first round tie against Germany in Brisbane at the weekend, Hewitt said Australia was in good stead with its current team -- including Nick Kyrgios, Jordan Thompson and up-and-comer Alex De Minaur -- without Tomic.
“It’s highly doubtful,” Hewitt send when asked about the chance of a Tomic return. “With the team comaraderie we have at the moment, it is as good as I’ve been a part of in a long time.”
“We fully believe that the players we have here, we can go a long way,” he added.
