Grosjean pulls out of France's Davis Cup tie

July 02, 2005 15:55 IST

Sebastien Grosjean has pulled out of France's Davis Cup quarter-final tie against Russia later this month in Moscow because of fatigue.

Grosjean said he made the decision after his Wimbledon quarter-final defeat by Andy Roddick on Friday and had informed France captain Guy Forget he would not be available for the July 15-17 tie.

"I feel tired, both physically and mentally," the Frenchman told Saturday's issue of L'Equipe. "I need a break."

New French number one Richard Gasquet is likely to lead France in Moscow with Paul-Henri Mathieu, Arnaud Clement and Michael Llodra the other probable selections.
