The seventh seed Juan Carlos Ferrero is out of next week's Heineken Tennis Open in Auckland,

The Spaniard's still recovering from surgery to his right wrist and also has a knee injury,

Tournament director Richard Palmer says Robin Haas from the Netherland will replace Ferrerro.

Palmer says there's a possibility that the world number five Robin Soderling could return to Auckland if the Swede loses overnight in Brisbane
