Nick Kyrgios has levelled the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas semifinal tie between Australia and Belgium 1-1. Kyrgios overcame Steve Darcis in a five-set thriller 6-3 3-6 6-7(5) 6-1 6-2 in a match that lasted three hours and 35 minutes.

Earlier today John Millman made his Davis Cup debut for Australia and fell just short to world No.12 David Goffin 7-6(4) 4-6 3-6 5-7.

Saturday will see John Peers and Jordan Thompson face Arthur De Greef and Ruben Bemelmans in the all-important doubles rubber. The reverse singles will be played on Sunday.

A win over Belgium would see Australia host the Davis Cup final at home in late November against the winner of France and Serbia.
