Grass the likely surface for Cup quarter-final

TENNIS: Australia is likely to play its Davis Cup home quarter-final against Kazakhstan on grass in July, just a week after Wimbledon.

The Aussies, led by Bernard Tomic (pictured) who beat the Czech Republic's Lukas Rosol 7-6 6-3 7-6 to clinch the tie 3-1 in Ostrava, will host the quarter-final from July 17-19, the first time the team has made the last eight since 2006.

Kazakhstan, led by two players ranked in the top 100 in the world - Mikhail Kukushkin (58) and Andrey Golubev (91) - beat Italy 3-2 in its first-round tie.

Australia should regain its top-ranked player, world No.35 Nick Kyrgios, after he missed the tie against the Czech Republic with a back complaint. In other quarter-finals, Great Britain will host France, Canada will clash with Belgium and Serbia will take on Argentina or Brazil.

If Australia can beat Kazakhstan it will meet either Great Britain or France in the semi-finals.
