Britain's top two men are to take a break from tournaments until the New Year. Tim Henman, who reached his highest world ranking of 98 last week, has announced his withdrawal from the circuit until the Australian Open in January. Greg Rusedski, who finished the year as World No 38, has followed suit although they will both play for Britian in the European Men's Team Championship in Dublin from 8 to 10 December.

Peter Fleming, who partnered John McEnroe to win the Wimbledon men's doubles title four times between 1979 and 1984, has been appointed the new coach to the Lawn Association Laing squad for 1996. He will be in charge of Andrew Richardson, the 21-year-old left-hander from Bourne in Lincolnshire, Jamie Delgado, the 18-year-old from Maidenhead, and 23- year-old Nick Gould, from Cleeve, near Bristol.
