Tim Henman, whose recent ATP Masters Series adventures took him from a final in Indian Wells to a defeat by Jurgen Melzer in his first match in Key Biscayne, can look forward to facing the Austrian left-hander again in the Davis Cup.

Britain yesterday drew an away tie in Austria next September in the World Group qualifying round after their 4-1 win in Luxembourg last weekend, when Henman won all nine sets in his three matches. Greg Rusedski, making a comeback after his drugs controversy, partnered Henman in the doubles and won the "dead" rubber.

Melzer, 59th in the world, is the Austrian No 1. The No 2, Stefan Koubek, ranked 89, won last year's ATP event in Doha.
