Slovenia's Blaz Kavcic retires from Davis Cup

Slovenian Blaz Kavcic has retired from the Davis Cup. The 31-year-old debuted in the Davis Cup in 2006 when he beat Rachid Baba-Aissa of Algeria. World No. 128 Kavcic featured in 19 ties during his Davis Cup career. The Slovenian finishes his Davis Cup career with a 17/8 singles record and a 5-3 doubles record, respectively.

Kavcic last played in the Davis Cup last year when he helped his side beat Monaco in a Europe/Africa Group II first round tie. The former world No. 68 was willing to help Slovenia against Poland this past February but was forced to withdraw from the tie after suffering an injury just days before the tie.

The Slovenian played in at least one Davis Cup tie from 2008 until 2015. Kavcic beat last year's ATP Finals champion Grigor Dimitrov in a Davis Cup match in 2010. Kavcic thinks that world No. 53 Aljaz Bedene and 166th-ranked Blaz Rola won't fail to deliver for Slovenia in the Davis Cup.

"I will always be a great fan of Slovenia and the national team. I want to join the team as many times as possible. With Aljaz Bedene and Blaz Rola, this is still a team that can achieve good results in the coming years," Kavcic said.
