Tomic, Hewitt to play Davis Cup

Updated January 26, 2012 19:24:18

Bernard Tomic and Lleyton Hewitt were both named in Australia's Davis Cup team to play China in February.

Captain Pat Rafter also included Australia's second-ranked men's player, Matthew Ebden, and Chris Guccione to play in the Asia-Oceania zone first-round tie in Geelong from February 10-12.

Tomic, Australia's top-ranked player, and Davis Cup regular Hewitt both declared themselves available, despite Hewitt having carried a toe injury into the Australian Open.

Hewitt's physical condition will be monitored in the lead-up.

Both Hewitt and Tomic reached the fourth round at Melbourne Park.

Australia must win the tie against China, then another tie in April against Asia-Oceania opposition, to qualify for a World Group play-off tie in September.
