Morocco has decided not to send a team to Israel for a Davis Cup tie later this month for security reasons. The decision was made in the wake of two Jerusalem bombings, one of which, on 30 July, killed 17 people and injured 170.

Greg Rusedski, having reached the semi-finals of the Samsung Open at Bournemouth last week, officially moved to No 10 in the ATP world rankings yesterday to erase Roger Taylor's 24-year-old British record. Taylor achieved the No 11 spot in September, 1973, so Rusedski, beaten in the US Open final in New York eight days ago, is the first British player to achieve a top 10 ranking since they began in 1973.
