Australia Davis Cup Captain Lleyton Hewitt recently spoke about Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic’s prospects at the Australian Open, saying one of them is fit while the other is not yet ready for it.

Speaking about Tomic, Hewitt said, "With the limited preparation (Tomic's) had, with the lack of matches, I think it would be the right move to come down and play," Hewitt told reporters on Wednesday.

"But I haven't heard one way or the other."

Kyrgios' season finished prematurely due to a persistent hip injury, but Hewitt is hopeful that he would be back on track for the first slam of the season.

"(Nick's) done a lot fitness-wise and also on the tennis court," Hewitt said. “He finished his season slightly early so it's about trying to get some point play into him really.”

"He starts in Brisbane where he had some success in the Davis Cup this year and he'll be excited about that. Hopefully come (the Australian Open) both of those boys will have had a fair few matches."
