Australia displays resilience as they defeat the Czechs to advance to the Davis Cup semi-finals.

Australia, last year’s runners-up, secured a hard-fought 2-1 victory over three-time champions Czech Republic, propelling them into the Davis Cup semi-finals. The pivotal win came from the Australian doubles pair, Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell, who clinched a 6-4, 7-5 triumph over Jiri Lehecka and Adam Pavlasek. Earlier, Alex de Minaur’s resilience helped level the tie at 1-1 with a 4-6, 7-6(2), 7-5 victory over Lehecka. Despite Tomas Machac giving the Czechs a 1-0 lead by defeating Jordan Thompson 6-4, 7-5, Australia advanced to face surprise semi-finalists Finland. Lleyton Hewitt’s team is eyeing their 29th Davis Cup title, with the United States holding the record at 32 titles. In the absence of Thanasi Kokkinakis due to an ankle injury, Australia displayed remarkable team spirit and fighting culture. Finland, who upset reigning champions Canada, awaits them in the semi-finals. The other quarter-final matchups feature Italy against the Netherlands and Novak Djokovic’s Serbia meeting Britain.
