The doubles specialist Todd Woodbridge broke up the Woodies doubles partnership for Australia's Davis Cup quarter-final against the United States when he withdrew from the team this morning. Australia's captain John Newcombe said Woodbridge, who forms one of the world's top doubles units with Mark Woodforde, had decided to withdraw because of a minor arm injury and a loss of form. Woodbridge was replaced by Sandon Stolle, who is ranked No 3 in the world in doubles, but Patrick Rafter might be called in to partner Woodforde or Stolle.

John McEnroe was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame on Saturday.
