BRIS­BANE: Andy Rod­dick has pulled out of this year’s Davis Cup com­pe­ti­tion but could make a come­back for the United States in the fu­ture.

Rod­dick says he’s “not re­tir­ing from Davis Cup”.

The United States plays Ser­bia in Bel­grade in the first round from March 5-7.

The 27-year-old Rod­dick spoke yes­ter­day af­ter beat­ing Richard Gas­quet of France in the quar­ter­fi­nals of the Bris­bane In­ter­na­tional.

Rod­dick in­jured his left knee in Oc­to­ber. The top Amer­i­can on the ATP World Tour said he doesn’t want to risk dam­ag­ing the knee by chang­ing court sur­faces fre­quently.

Rod­dick has played 22 Davis Cup matches, in­clud­ing the 2007 fi­nal win over Rus­sia, and has a 31-11 record in sin­gles. – Sapa-AP
