"We are not over confident, we've got an enormous amount of respect for this team (Serbia) which has a lot of very good players", said Pouille, who was beaten in the fourth round at the US Open.

Lajovic had cramps in his right foot towards the end of the fourth set and needed some help from Serbia player and captain Nenad Zimonjic to put his shoe back on after hitting an overhead victor for a 5-4 lead in the fourth-set tiebreaker.

The World No.20 added that he hates losing and that his performances were largely based on his mental state - which the media plays a big role in. Switzerland are without Roger Federer or Stan Wawrinka in a tie with Belarus, Canada minus injured Milos Raonic host India, Germany face Portugal, the Czech Republic clash with the Netherlands, and Russian Federation play Hungary.

Ruben Bemelmans and Arthur De Greef will play the doubles rubber for Belgium on Day 2.

Neither of the Belgians play a great deal of doubles but with Peers' regular Davis Cup partner Sam Groth not in the team, the Aussies will field a new-look doubles team. I made it my objective this week to get a win for Australia.

"I can't relate to anything (Tomic) says anymore", said Kyrgios, who met Steve Darcis in the second singles match yesterday.

Captain Lleyton Hewitt said Millman's late call-up follows his strong form over recent weeks.

Goffin, returning from a knee injury and who took some three-and-a-half hours to defeat Millman on Friday, has lost his three encounters with Kyrgios, although the match will be their first meeting on clay.

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 US past year. At the Rio 2016 Olympics, winning his opening match 6-0 6-0, the first man to do so.

Australia and France have moved in front in their respective Davis Cup 2017 semi-finals following victories in today's doubles matches. Peers owns a 2-2 Davis Cup doubles record, while Thompson, 3-0 in singles action, will be making his doubles debut.

If you compare Nick Kyrgios with Bernard Tomic, you're doing the former a disservice. That week in Perth, Australia, he went undefeated in singles matches including wins over Alexandr Dolgopolov, Alexander Zverev, and Andy Murray.
