Frenchman Benneteau out of Davis Cup final
Julien Benneteau of France will miss the Davis Cup final because he has not recovered in time from a left wrist injury sustained at the U.S. Open.
France will play Serbia in the Davis Cup final next month.
The doubles specialist made his Davis Cup debut this year. He was 4-0 in singles and doubles with Michael Llodra. Arnaud Clement may partner with Llodra in the final.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has been ruled out of the Dec. 3-5 final with a knee injury, while Gael Monfils is likely to play singles.
Llodra is vying with Gilles Simon and Richard Gasquet for the other singles spot. Captain Guy Forget will announce his squad on Tuesday.
