Dan Evans has withdrawn from Great Britain’s team for the Davis Cup Finals with a calf injury.

The 33-year-old had been named alongside Cameron Norrie, Andy Murray, Jack Draper and Neal Skupski to face Serbia in Malaga in November.

However, the British number two limped off court at the Erste Bank Open on Tuesday after sustaining the injury.

“I will be working hard with my support team to get back to full fitness as soon as possible,” Evans said.

Britain take on Serbia in the last eight on 23 November, with the semi-finals and final taking place later that week in Malaga.

“Unfortunately, as a result of the injury sustained in Vienna, I will not be fit to compete at the Davis Cup finals in a couple of weeks,” Evans wrote on social media.external-link

“I am extremely disappointed but wish the rest of the GB team all the very best in Malaga.”

Evans in helping his nation qualify for the knockout stages earlier this year.

On Saturday, British number one Cameron Norrie pulled out of next week’s Paris Masters with a knee injury, but is expected to be fit enough for the Davis Cup.
