Great Britain's Davis Cup team face a hectic weekend after the first day of their World Group play-off in Austria was washed out.

Play was officially abandoned at 3.15pm BST and the opening singles schedule was moved forward to an earlier start time of 8.30am - 9.30am local time - on Saturday morning.

That means Tim Henman will have to be an early riser, as his match against Austrian number two Stefan Koubek is first up.

Provided neither of those singles is extended beyond 45 games, Henman and Greg Rusedski will also - weather and light permitting - be required to contest their doubles rubber.

Saturday's weather was forecast as more promising, with no rain predicted, but the teams faced a race against time to bring the programme back up to date before the final day.
