In Brisbane, Steve Johnson and Jack Sock kept American hopes alive with a 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, 2-6, 6-3 win over Australia's John Peers and Sam Groth.

"What Federer has accomplished this year is admirable and it shows that one can play at the top level even at his age".

"It's really incredible, it gives you goosebumps", Benneteau said of the win. "I now wish my players good results on the ATP Tour and hopefully we will be at full strength in the semifinals".

Djokovic will take on Ramos-Vinolas in the tie's opening singles rubber on Friday, followed by a clash between Viktor Troicki and Carreno Busta. Bemelmans and de Loore had a match point to win the tie in the fifth set tiebreak but the Italians nicked it 8-6.

"I have lost matches in my career before, I'm going to lose more", said Edmund.

Nine-time winners France have gambled by handing the second singles spot to veteran Jeremy Chardy despite the world number 68 not having played in the tournament for six years. "It was a great responsibility, and I felt as I had no right to make a mistake, that I have to win", Zimonjic said, explaining that until the second set the pressure affected on his performance while Troicki was in great shape from the start of the match.
