Rusedski out of Davis Cup !!!!!!!!!!

Britain's Davis Cup hopes suffered a massive blow when Greg Rusedski pulled out with a heel injury.
Rusedski picked up the injury during his US Open third-round defeat to Pete Sampras.

Britain meet Thailand in a qualifying match to return to the World Group on Friday.

But with Rusedski absent, and British number one Tim Henman rating his chances of making the tie "no more than 50-50", the prospects look far from good.

Henman is still struggling with the shoulder injury that hampered him during the US Open earlier this month.


If Henman is forced to pull out, Great Britain skipper Roger Taylor will have to call on Martin Lee and Arvind Parmar to shoulder the challenge.
"At the moment my chances are no more than 50-50," said Henman.

"The arm feels a lot stronger than when I flew home from New York - but I haven't hit a ball yet and I'd be stupid to take any unnecessary risks.

"I play tennis for fun and things had not been at all enjoybale during my time in the States.

"It was tough for me to be positive."

Thailand have only one player ranked in the world's top 200, but the form of world number 31 Paradorn Srichaphan is of concern to the British team.

He beat Andre Agassi at Wimbledon, won his first tournament in August and has been steadily rising up the rankings all year.

This is terrible news. But I do seem to be the only one who's sad about it.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

That's very unfortunate news! Davis Cup would be more interesting and exciting with a prominent British team fighting for the Cup.

Remember the U.S versus Britain Davis Cup match in England from a couple of years ago? That was an incredible Tie!

Egalite!

That's a sad news for Britain, even if Henman can make it, I think paradon will still win his two ties putting Britain in really bad position, if Tim cannot play... I cannot imagine

go Paradorn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

sad news for GB, but now I understand why Rusedski thought Pete was one step and a half slower in the US Open...he was probably hallucinating and running a fever...

It is sad that Greg is apparently injured, and Tim is Tim, but..

Go Thailand

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Why call on british number 14 Miles Mclagan to join the team? makes little sense to me.
