Youzhny to miss Davis Cup final
Mikhail Youzhny
Youzhny will be out of action for the rest of the year
Russia's Mikhail Youzhny has confirmed he will miss the Davis Cup final against Argentina with an ankle injury.

The world number 23 broke a bone in his right ankle on Wednesday while playing at the St Petersburg Open.

Youzhny became a national hero after coming from two sets down to beat Paul-Henri Mathieu of France in the deciding rubber in the 2002 final.

Russia are already without Igor Andreev for this year's final, which is being held in Moscow from 1-3 December.

Nikolay Davydenko also withdrew from the St Petersburg event on Wednesday after hurting his foot.

But the world number five's injury is not thought to be serious and he is hoping to be fit for next week's Paris Masters.

However, two other leading players have pulled out of the Paris event.

World number three Ivan Ljubicic has a viral infection while fourth-ranked Andy Roddick is still suffering with an ankle injury he picked up in last week's Madrid Masters.
