Greg Rusedski, the British No 2, reached his fourth ATP Tour semi-final of the year yesterday with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Brazilian Gustavo Kuerten in the Peking Open.

The Austrian Tennis Federation said yesterday it would appeal against the International Tennis Federation's verdict that it must forfeit $59,000 (pounds 38,600) in prize-money for failing to complete last month's Davis Cup tie against Brazil, believing they are entitled to the advertising part of the money, some $40,000. The Austrians will not dispute the 4-1 victory awarded to Brazil by the ITF after their team's walk-out.
