"The training that we did last week, that's the reason that they got the result tonight" - Australia's captain Lleyton Hewitt on new Davis Cup format

Former World No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt was delighted following Australia's victory over the Netherlands in the quarterfinals of the 2022 Davis Cup.

Hewitt, the captain of the Australian team, said that he was proud of his players for the effort they put in despite a long and tiring season.

"I can't be prouder of these guys. I know it's a bloody long year. You know, there have been changes and tweaks to this competition that we have had to adjust to the last three years. We're back to these guys making massive sacrifices to be playing for their country. This is the third time this year," said Hewitt during a post-match press conference.

The Aussie also spoke about the change in the tournament's format, adding that the training his team did last week was the reason they beat the Netherlands.

"Normally, you know, when it changed to this format, it was only ever going to be twice a year," added Hewitt. "So we have added on another week, it's been a bloody long year for everyone, and we are a long way from home, too. Don't forget that.

"I don't like the chances of this final series ever being played in Australia. My boys do a lot of hard work, they come together, and they back each other. The training that we did last week, that's the reason that they got the result tonight."
