Millman leads Aussies to victory

Australia have qualified for the Davis Cup finals in November after a second John Millman outcome in as many days.

Brazil claimed the mixed doubles rubber to keep the tie alive after the Aussies started brightly winning both the singles matches.

Needing to win just one of the reverse singles rubbers Millman lost the opening set as he did on Friday but eventually prevailed 6-7, 7-6, 7-6.

Millman said he always believed he could get the job done.

“The body was a little sore; the emotion levels were perhaps a little bit down at times - it’s tough to be up the whole time." Millman said.

“But that is when you have really got to use your bench and use the experience that is Lleyton Hewitt and Tony Roche...they dragged me up when I was nearly down.”

Australia will look to go further in the Davis Cup finals this year after being knocked out of the quarter-finals of last year by Canada.
