·

Lleyton Hewitt has revealed Nick Kyrgios opted to attend a business meeting in the United States rather than make a return to the Davis Cup side for Australia’s clash with Hungary, The Age reports.

Kyrgios has not played in the team event since 2019, but was approached by Hewitt about making a return.

“We wanted him back for this match. For us, it’s disappointing he wasn’t available for this particular tie. The top five players are in the team – he’s absolutely in the team [when available],” Hewitt said.

Hewitt and Kyrgios haven’t seen eye to eye at times during the latter’s career, but the Davis Cup captain insisted they are now on good terms.
