Australian Davis Cup Team Captain – Lleyton Hewitt recently spoke about Davis Cup, saying that this team event will be overshadowed by other team events. The Laver Cup is set to commence next week with the World’s top players are set to battle it out in a team event style format.

"This has been here for over a hundred years," Hewitt said ahead of Australia's semi-final tie with Belgium on Thursday. "The Laver Cup is not country against country. This is where you get to put on a green and gold jacket.

“You get to play alongside guys you grew up with. It's a pretty special time and the home and away aspect of the Davis Cup is something we should never lose.” “It's the one unique factor about this competition.

Even though we are away this week we are really enjoying it. We get to bond as a team and a country.” “There is no greater honour in playing for your country.” He further added, “This competition has meant so much to me.

I've been a part of it for over 20 years now. As an orange boy as a 15-year-old. To playing for so many years and now as a captain of my country.” “We come from a country with a rich tradition in this competition and I don't say things lightly about the Davis Cup.

When I look at the players in my team who have put their hands up to play, I am so proud. I couldn't field a stronger team.” ALSO READ .
