Vienna:

Stefan Koubek will return to Austria's Davis Cup team for next month's first-round tie against France, six months after retiring from the squad.

The Austrian Tennis Federation says the 171st-ranked Koubek will replace Andreas Haider-Maurer, who is sidelined with pneumonia.

Koubek did not miss a Davis Cup tie for Austria in 12 years before pulling out last year, saying "I've got the feeling I can't match the performances from my Davis Cup career anymore."

The 34-years-old Koubek won three ATP tour titles and was ranked a career-high No. 20 in 2000.

Austria plays last year's finalist France from March 4-6 in a hangar at Vienna's main airport.
