Rusedcki out of Davis Cup
Greg Rusedski has been ruled out of Britain's Davis Cup clash with Australia following foot surgery. Britain captain Roger Taylor, quoted by the BBC, said he was "extremely disappointed", adding: "It is a real blow."
The Lawn Tennis Association announced Rusedski's withdrawal from the world group first-round tie in Sydney in February on its website.
Rusedski said he still hoped to be back in action in January in time for the Australian Open but had made the decision because he did not want to unsettle the Davis Cup team with a last-minute withdrawal.
"i don't want to give (the team) last-minute notice if i had to withdraw" Rusedcki said .
