Australia and US withdraw from World Youth Cup
Following the recent terrorist attacks on the United States, both Tennis Australia and the United States Tennis Association have pulled out of the NEC World Youth Cup Final in Chile, October 16-21.
The reason given was that "players, managers and parents involved were hesitant about travelling internationally at this point in time, given the uncertainty that exists in the world".
Both nations were to be represented by a boys' and girls' teams. Australia won the boys' event last year.
