Jerzy Janowicz: Poland star to miss Hopman Cup
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.
