Norrie got the tie underway with a 6-4, 2-6, 7-6(2) victory over Alex de Minaur. The Brit looked to apply the pressure from the get-go as he clinched an immediate break on de Minaur's opening service game to seal the first set. Despite the Aussie dishing out a strong response in the second to level the scoreboard, Norrie continued to strike with consistency in the third and decisive set, to eventually call for a tie-break to settle the opening rubber.

Looking to keep his foot on the gas pedal, Norrie found five breaks on the world No.12's serve to eventually wrap up the win in two hours and 35 minutes in front of a packed crowed at Perth's RAC Arena.

Then it was over to Boulter to secure the tie for Great Britain, after the 27-year-old produced an exceptional display over Ajla Tomljanovic which saw her prevail 6-2, 6-4.

Boulter kick-started the second match in a similar way to her compatriot, after finding an early double break on Tomljanovic's serve to race ahead to a 4-0 lead and convincingly take the opener.

The world No.56 continued to control and dominate in the second set - wracking up an impressive 14 winners to her opponents four and needing just one break to take the lead and close in on a triumphant victory on her first match point.

"I've been practicing really well coming into this event" Boulter said in her on-court interview, "I tried to work as hard as I could and compete and enjoy competing because it's been a whole month since we've been competing.

"It's a true privilege to represent my country and I don't take it light-heartedly, I think it brings the best out of me. It's great to be back here and have the team behind me."

Despite having already secured the tie, Boulter then teamed up with reigning Wimbledon champion Neal Skupski for the mixed doubles rubber. Despite a valiant effort in their first match together, the Brits eventually lost out to doubles world No.1 Storm Hunter and Matthew Ebden, 6-3, 7-6(5).

Next up, the Brits will take on defending champions USA on Sunday 31 December at 2:00am GMT.
