Australia's two leading stars Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios are at odds forcing new captain Lleyton Hewitt into a peacemaking role after an extraordinary post-script to Australia's Davis Cup loss to the United States Sunday.Tomic challenged the commitment of Kyrgios to the Davis Cup competition after his team-mate's withdrawal from the Kooyong tie with illness and back trouble.Tomic later did not resile from his comments and questioned the legitimacy of the virus that ruled out Kyrgios if he was competing as planned in an American tournament this week.Hewitt, who came out of retirement for Saturday's five-set doubles loss to the crack Bryan brothers in Kyrgios's absence, said he did not share Tomic's sentiments.
