Holger Rune has withdrawn from the Laver Cup due to receiving treatment on his back. Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina will replace the Dane on Team Europe.

“As I am in treatment with my back it’s not possible for me to play Laver Cup next week,” Rune wrote on social media. “I would have loved to join the fight to get the trophy back to Europe and I will support my teammates from a distance.”

Davidovich Fokina will make his debut at the Laver Cup, which will be played from Friday through Sunday in Vancouver.

“You play against the best players in the world at Laver Cup,” Davidovich Fokina said according to the event’s website. “I am excited to be a part of Team Europe, to share the court with other great players and to have them supporting you.”
