Bulgaria's men's tennis team will not be able to replace the team of Austria at the ATP Cup tournament on January 1, 2022 in Sydney.

Due to the late refusal of Dennis Novak, we cannot gather at least three tennis players, which is the requirement of the organizers, Grigor Dimitrov's manager Georgi Stoimenov has told the TennisCafe website.

Dimitrov and Dimitar Kuzmanov are already in Australia, but the country's third and fourth players, Adrian Andreev and Alexander Lazarov, are preparing in Italy and cannot obtain visas to arrive on time for the tournament.

Listen to the daily news from Bulgaria presented in "Bulgaria Today" podcast, available in Spotify.
