Team Australia defied a tough draw to clinch a 3-0 clean sweep over Germany in their ATP Cup opener in Brisbane on Friday night and are now intent on revenge against Canada.
Nick Kyrgios put the Australians 1-0 up with his 6-4 7-6 (4) win over Jan-Lennard Struff.
Alex de Minaur then produced a trademark performance, fighting back from a set and a break down to claim a 4-6 7-6 (3) 6-2 victory over Alexander Zverev and seal the tie for his country.
John Peers and Chris Guccione then took to the court in the doubles against Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies.
The pair didn’t miss a beat in their 6-3 6-4 win as the Australians remained undefeated.
Peers and his teammates next face Canada on Sunday.
Peers admitted the clash had been top of mind since the Canadians knocked them out in Davis Cup Finals in Madrid in November.
“It was a tough loss to take and hopefully we can get a bit of revenge,” Peers told the West Australian.
“Get the boys back going well together and seeing if we can get back on a roll, especially in Australia where we know we can get a lot of home support.”
