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.”
