Australia, Germany degree at 1-1

Caroline Wozniacki reaches for a backhand

That put them up 2-1 going into yesterday's reverse singles, with a chance to advance to the quarter-finals for the first time since 2014.

But that was nearly as good as it got for the Australian team, as Kyrgios lost two of his next three service games to surrender the opening set in just 23 minutes.

He said, "It's up to only them to fix.we have a few wrong people in that organisation and I hope that can change and I hope the best players can be playing Davis Cup again".

It was Kyrgios' second of the match after he belted a ball into the stands in anger earlier in the set.

He also returned well, getting many of Kyrgios' thunderbolts back in play and then winning the battle from the back of the court.

"It's awesome, it's an unbelievable feeling and without my teammates it wouldn't have been possible", Zverev, 20, said.

Hewitt said he would "cross that bridge if we come to it" in the event of a two-all scoreline should Nick Kyrgios see off Alexander Zverev.

Australia had to win both reverse singles on Sunday to qualify for April's quarterfinals after Matthew Ebden and John Peers lost the doubles rubber in five sets to Jan-Lennard Struff and Tim Puetz.

Zverev - who was pushed for nearly four hours before seeing off 18-year-old Alex de Minaur in five sets on Friday - was rarely troubled.

Zverev made short work of Kyrgios in the third set to secure a win and improve his head-to-head record to 5-2 against the Australian No. 1 in all competitions.

The mercurial Australian opened brilliantly, holding his serve to love much to the delight of the boisterous home crowd.

Kyrgios lost two of his first four service games to surrender the opening set in just 23 minutes.

Kyrgios appeared to be struggling with a right elbow ailment, taking a time-out for treatment while leading 4-3 in the second set.

But the turning point of the match came when Zverev complained about the loud cheering from the Fanatics (an Australian group of fans who travel the world to cheer on their heroes at various sporting events) at three-all in the fourth set.

In other matches, the U.S. advanced to the quarter-finals stage after Ryan Harrison and Steve Johnson won to give them an unassailable 3-0 lead in Serbia.

On Sunday, the image of Kyrgios was that of a shattered man whose Davis Cup ambitions were cut down by injury at the worst possible time.

"He's okay now. He understands ...what happened is done now", Kyrgios said. "My biggest weapon (serve) was not really there and that affects the rest of my game", he said.

The image of Nick Kyrgios this summer has been that of a maturing young star; increasingly personable, upbeat and better able to handle the demands placed on a professional tennis player of his rank and profile.
