Bouchard, who is due to fly out of Perth on Friday to compete at the Hobart International, was hopeful rather than confident the injury wouldn't affect her Australian Open hopes.

"I'm hopeful but you never know," Bouchard said.

"You always get little muscle pulls here or there. But this one specifically, no (I've never had it before)."

World No.7 David Goffin can secure the tie win for Belgium with victory over Vasek Pospisil.

However, even if Belgium win the tie 3-0, Germany are in the box seat to reach the final.

Germany are yet to be defeated at the mixed-teams event, and will qualify for Saturday's final with victory over Australia on Friday night.

If Germany lose, then it opens the door for Belgium to scrape through.

Switzerland's pairing of Roger Federer and Belinda Bencic have already secured their spot in the final by topping Group B.

Mertens required treatment on her eye during her win over Bouchard, but she said it wasn't anything serious.

"There was some sunscreen in my eyes," Mertens said.
