Josh Goodall and Alex Bogdanovic to lose LTA funding

23 December 09 12:11 GMT

Berkshire tennis players Alex Bogdanovic and Josh Goodall have been dropped from the Lawn Tennis Association's (LTA) elite funding list.

It means Goodall will see his funding fall from £40,000 in 2009 to just £4,000 for the first half of 2010.

Bogdanovic, 25, is the British number two, but has failed to progress past the first round at Wimbledon.

Doubles specialist Goodall, who is 24 years old, recently won the Bangkok Challenger tournament.

Both players have featured in Davis Cup matches in the past two years.

Bogdanovic is nearly 100 ATP ranking places ahead of Britain's number three seed, Dan Evans, who has made it onto the LTA list.
