The former world No 7 has seen his ranking slip to 47 after missing four months of the season with a right knee problem, an absence which included the French Open, Wimbledon, Olympics and the US Open.

He returned in September, making the semi-finals in Metz before pulling out of the Asian ATP swing and losing in the first round in Stockholm this week to Sweden's Patrik Rosenholm, the world No 436.
