Aussies draw Brazil in Davis Cup qualifier

Alex de Minaur spearheaded Australia's campaign at the inaugural Davis Cup Finals in Madrid

Australia have been matched against Brazil in the draw for the 2020 Davis Cup qualifiers.

Lleyton Hewitt's men will host the South Americans on March 6-7, with the winners earning a place in the Finals next November.

In all, 24 nations will play off in March in traditional home and away ties to decide which 12 go through to the 18-team Finals in Madrid and join this year's semi-finalists and two wildcards.

The 12 home-and-away ties will consist of four singles matches and one doubles match in best-of-three sets.

Great Britain and Russia were the beaten semi-finalists while France and Serbia have been handed wildcards.

The Americans, the Davis Cup's most successful team with 32 titles, will have choice of venues for their tie with Uzbekistan.

Sunday's draw also matched 2018 champions Croatia with the winner of the Pakistan v India series while Colombia will face Argentina in an all South American affair.
