Team Australia will see Marinko Matosevic step in for Matt Ebden at Hopman Cup 2015.
27-year-old Ebden sustained a mild calf strain during his match against Poland’s Jerzy Janowicz on Sunday night and has been forced to withdraw from the event.
“I’m disappointed to withdraw from the Hopman Cup, an event I love so much,” Ebden said today.
“While my calf has recovered really well it’s probably not match fit to be able to play on Wednesday night. I don’t want to take that risk for the tournament and my health.
“I plan to be fully recovered by the end of the week and be fit and ready for upcoming tournaments,” added Ebden.
Matosevic will team up with Casey Dellacqua when they face defending champions France tomorrow evening,
