France's Amelie Mauresmo has pulled out of next week's FedCup tennis finals in Moscow with a groin injury.
France, Spain, Russia and Austria have qualified for the finals.
"It's hard to turn down a call-up for the national side but if I want to start 2005 in the best condition then it's the only way," said the world No.2
who has been carrying the injury for most of the season.
Mauresmo, who rose to world No.1 for five weeks this year, has set her sights on winning a Grand Slam.
Mauresmo was keen to be fit for the Australian Open in January, having reached the final as a 19-year-old in 1999.
She was on target to reach this year's final when she pulled out after her fourth round win over Australia's Alicia Molik with a back injury.
I don't know she withdraw this match because she originally has an injury!!
I misunderstanding her!!
