Kyrgios Outduels Darcis to Even Australia with Belgium

France takes a 2-1 lead

France takes a 2-1 lead

Queensland's John Millman will open the first day of play against world No.12 David Goffin in the blockbuster Davis Cup semi final between Australia and Belgium this weekend.

Despite his strong form on the world stage, Peers was overlooked by a succession of Davis Cup captains until Hewitt took over and gave him his debut against the U.S. a year ago.

In the second semi-final, France pulled a point clear of Serbia after they recorded doubles success in Lille today.

Kyrgios credited Australian team captain Lleyton Hewitt with fostering that team spirit, before claiming that the Davis Cup has helped rekindle his motivation for the sport.

The 12th-ranked Goffin, who led Belgium to the 2015 Davis Cup final where it fell to Great Britain, had been slowed by an ankle injury that forced him out of Wimbledon earlier this summer.

The next day, when another teacher was in his homeroom class, Stone was working on a work sheet when the pledge was being recited. The Supreme Court ruled in the 1943 case of West Virginia State Board of Education v.

The combustible Kyrgios came back from 2-1 down to defeat 33-year-old Steve Darcis 6-3, 3-6, 6-7 (5/7), 6-1, 6-2 in 3 hours, 36 minutes on the clay courts of Brussels' Palais 12 Arena.

"We combine well together and played together at Hertogenbosch on the grass where we got to the semis but played out some tight wins".

Kyrgios has had his fair share of off-the-field issues himself, but as he prepares to lead Australia into their Davis Cup encounter in Belgium, the 22-year-old believes Tomic has even bigger problems to address.

There was no such drama in the second rubber as top-ranked Frenchman Tsonga had little trouble racing past world no 95 Djere with a routine 7-6 (7-2) 6-3 6-3 victory. France captain Yannick Noah was critical of his own performance.

"I know that he plays some really good Davis Cup matches. I was a bit stressed and I think I passed my stress to Lucas", he said.

Teen In Slender Man Trial Ruled Mentally Ill
After deliberating for the day on Friday the jury determined that Weier was mentally ill at the time of the attack. Weier told authorities she believed Slender Man would harm herself and her family if she didn't stab the victim.

Earlier in the day, Belgian number one David Goffin beat John Millman 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 6-3 7-5. "I'll have to improve our communication for the next rubber".

"He put me under real pressure and I had to dig in at times".

"I can honestly say winning a grand slam would not make me the happiest person on earth", he writes.

Belgian's medical team have been working round the clock to ensure Goffin's presence after the Belgian star injured his left knee at the US Open.

"Playing with Thommo and in front of this crowd and perform the way we did is just incredible", said Peers after Saturday's win in Brussels.

New Zealander Ben McLachlan, who has switched allegiance to play for Japan, is expected to make his Davis Cup bow in the doubles. "We still have to finish the job".
