Last Updated: Sunday, July 10, 2011 - 17:23

Beijing: Lleyton Hewitt has secured Australia`s passage into the Davis Cup World Group playoffs with a 6-2, 6-1, 4-6, 7-6 (2) win over China`s Zhang Ze to give Australia an unassailable 3-1 lead in the Asia-Oceania second-round match.

The 173rd-ranked Hewitt, originally only listed to play in Saturday`s doubles, replaced Marinko Matosevic for the first of Sunday`s reverse singles.

The former No. 1-ranked Hewitt repaid the faith of team captain Pat Rafter, recording his 37th win in 46 Cup singles matches.

On Saturday, Hewitt helped give Australia a 2-1 lead after a straight-sets win in doubles with partner Chris Guccione.
