Former champions Australia, Germany and Italy punched tickets to the Davis Cup finals today while Japan rallied from a 2-1 deficit as Taro Daniel won the decisive rubber to overcome China.
 
Australia romped to a 4-0 rout of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Adelaide, as John Peers and Jordan Thompson clinched the tie with a 7-5, 6-1 defeat of Mirza Basic and Tomislav Brkic in the doubles.

Teenager Alexei Popyrin, in his Davis Cup debut, followed up with a 6-1, 7-6 win over Nerman Fatic, while the fifth match was not played.

Germany, who won the last of three titles in 1993, eased to a 3-0 victory over Hungary as Jan-Lennard Struff and Tim Puetz strolled to a 6-2, 6-3 doubles triumph.

World number three Alexander Zverev had crushed Peter Nagy yesterday to put the Germans within touching distance of the finals after Philipp Kohlschreiber opened the tie in Frankfurt by outlasting Zsombor Piros 6-7,  7-5, 6-4.

Andreas Seppi guided Italy into the finals of the revamped competition after the 1976 champions dispatched India 3-1.

Seppi brushed aside India's number one Prajnesh Gunneswaran 6-1, 6-4 in the first reverse singles tie on Kolkata's grass court after India avoided a whitewash by taking the doubles.

Italy, who had led 2-0, overnight were forced to extend the encounter after Simone Bolelli and Matteo Berrettini lost to Rohan Bopanna and Divij Sharan 6-4, 3-6, 4-6.
