Dutch tennis players face Australia in Davis Cup quarter-finals |  Currently

The Dutch tennis players will meet Australia in the quarter-finals of the Davis Cup at the end of November. The Australian team, without leader Alex de Minaur, lost the game to Germany to claim the group win in Hamburg on Sunday.

Australia and Germany won their first two matches and thus competed only for the group win. After the victories of German Jan-Lennard Struve and Australian Thansi Kokinakis in the singles, German duo Kevin Krawetz/Tim Potts scored the decisive point in the doubles.

Due to the loss, Australia finished second in Group C and will beat the Netherlands, who qualified for the knockout stage as the winner of Group D earlier this week. The Dutch national team won the Davis Cup this week in Glasgow against Kazakhstan, Great Britain and the United States, each time 2-1.

This is only the second time that the Netherlands have participated in the Davis Cup Finals. The only other time was in 2019. At that time, the group stage was the last stop due to the defeats to Great Britain and Kazakhstan.

Kyrgios may attend again in November

Australia may once again have Nick Kyrgios, number 20 in the world, in the knockout stage on the hard court in Malaga. The Wimbledon final, after a good season, passed the group stage of the Davis Cup finals.

Kyrgios wanted to spend time with his family after the US Open, as they were stranded in the quarter-finals. De Minaur is ranked 22nd in the world. He played in Hamburg this week during the group matches against Belgium (2-1) and France (3-0).
