Wimbledon semi-finalist Jerzy Janowicz has been forced to withdraw from the Poland team for this month's Hopman Cup in Australia due to a foot injury.

Janowicz was to partner Agnieszka Radwanska in the annual international mixed team tournament in Perth, which serves as a warm-up for January's Australian Open.

He will be replaced in the draw by Davis Cup team-mate Grzegorz Panfil.

Janowicz revealed he had injured his foot a couple of weeks ago and had lost his race against time to be fit in time to play.

"Poland will be making its debut at the event and I wish Agnieszka the best of luck," he said.

John Isner, Sloane Stephens, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Petra Kvitova, Sam Stosur and Bernard Tomic are among the field for the tournament which runs from December 28 to January 4.
