That meant a tough singles baptism for debutant Purcell, who’s been shining in the doubles with two victories, as he had to tackle big-hitting Jan-Lennard Struff in front of a partisan full-house in the Rothenbaum Arena.

In the second match, Hewitt took the chance to bring in Thanasi Kokkinakis, who had been unwell earlier in the week, to play Oscar Otte in a bid to rescue the tie.

Both Alex de Minaur, who won both his singles in the victories against Belgium and France, and Jason Kubler, victor on his debut against the Belgians, were given a rest.

It was a second victory of the Group Stage for the dynamic Purcell and Ebden, who were crowned men’s doubles champions at Wimbledon in July, as their stock continues to rise.

“Delivering on behalf of your nation in such tight matches, when it really matters, is what it is all about,” said Ebden. “I’ve been lucky to be around Davis Cup for 10 years now, while I’ve known Lleyton [Hewitt] since I was about 17.

“I have learnt all about Australia’s Davis Cup history and these moments, performing when the pressure is on, are what it’s about. At the same time, we were spurred on by the effort of Kubs [Jason Kubler] and then Alex [De Minaur], who turned it around and gave us a shot in the doubles.

“I was so pumped and inspired by them and felt really confident to go out there and get the job done. Credit to Max, we played two really clean sets and couldn’t have asked for more. This was a big team effort, a big team big day, and it was great to finish on top.”
