Nick Kyrgios not focused on eventually facing Rafael Nadal in Davis Cup

Nick Kyrgios was asked in a press conference if he would like to face Spain and Rafael Nadal in the Davis Cup final on Sunday in Madrid. The Australian is only focused on the next match. "You realize I can't play him; right?", said Kyrgios to the journalist.

"We have to play Canada tomorrow. So it's a good question." The team captain Lleyton Hewitt was asked if he would like to see ATP and Davis Cups combined: "Right now, mate, I'm not going to answer it.

We're after midnight and I've got to get ready for a quarterfinal tomorrow. We're here to try and win the Davis Cup, that's what we're here for. At the end of the week, I can answer other questions."

Asked if he has time to watch other ties and opponents, Hewitt replied: "Obviously, we had the first day off so me and the rest of the coaching staff and a couple of the players were able to go and watch our first two opponents, Belgium and Colombia, play.

Apart from that, we haven't seen a whole heap. The odd point here and there in the locker room. But trying to organize all these guys' practices and warmups and everything else that goes with it, no, there hasn't been a lot of downtime."

John Millman believes Australia is ready to achieve big things: "Some of these boys are also keen to, you know, write another chapter in that history. Because we're very proud of what's happened in the past."
