Bolt and Peers grab Australia win over Hungary in Davis Cup
The Aussies had to come from 0-1 down to win the tie
Alex Bolt and John Peers were Australia’s heroes as they pulled off an amazing Davis Cup doubles win over Hungary.
The Australians beat Fabian Marozsan and Zsombor Piros 6-3, 6-7(11), 6-3 – but they cannot progress from Group D as one of the best runners-up because they failed to win the tie 3-0.
Earlier on Saturday, Piros beat John Millman 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 in the first singles match of the day before Alex de Minaur secured his own three-set victory. In a mammoth encounter with Marton Fucsovics that lasted three hours and five minutes, the Australian levelled the tie 7-5, 2-6, 7-6(2) – leaving it all down to the doubles.
Australia had lost their first tie in these finals, beaten 3-0 by Croatia.
