Hewitt just announced the squad for the DC R1 tie against France on air:
I don't see what Guccione does to earn his spot when Matosevic and Ebden can't even make the team! Don't even talk about doubles because they didn't even play together when they had the chance at the Aus Open where Hewitt and Guccione both played but with different partners! He's there because he's Hewitt's mate and that is it! Ridiculous.
Thompson has never played an ATP MD match. He had R1 against Janowicz at AO and played well but let's not trip here; Janowicz was dismal and hitting drop shots on every third point in those first two sets. I don't understand this one most of all!
Matosevic makes QFs in Sydney and Brisbane, and took Nishikori to 5 sets @ AO. He's almost TOP 50 and ranked above Tomic yet can't make the squad; when Guccione (517), Kokkinakis (570), Kyrgios (183) and Thompson (319) make the squad. Ebden also won as many matches and Kokk and Kyrgios at AO!
Kyrgios is fair enough IMO, but the others
