Lleyton Hewitt was recalled to Australia's Davis Cup team on Monday to play Belarus in next week's quarter-finals.

Hewitt missed the first-round win over Switzerland through injury but will replace Peter Luczak in the four-man squad.

He will be joined by towering left-hander Chris Guccione and doubles specialists Wayne Arthurs and Paul Hanley for the April 7-9 tie at Kooyong in Melbourne.

"I was so proud of all the guys in Switzerland, they all had a big role to play and really stepped up and did the job for us," Australia's non-playing captain John Fitzgerald said in a statement.

"Of course it will be great to have Lleyton back in the team, which will strengthen the mix and give us some more options," he added.

Belarus have yet to name their squad but are expected to be led by Max Mirnyi and Vladimir Voltchkov.
