INJURED NISHIKORI OUT OF JAPAN DAVIS CUP CLASH

0

TOKYO: Japan’s number one Kei Nishikori has been forced to pull out of this week’s Davis Cup quarter-final against holders the Czech Republic in Tokyo because of a groin injury. The 24-year-old aggravated the troubled area while beating Roger Federer in Miami last week, prompting him to withdraw from his semi-final against Novak Djokovic. Nishikori said on Wednesday he would not be fit to face the Czechs, dealing a crushing blow to Japan’s hopes of a major upset with world number five Tomas Berdych choosing not to travel to the Far East and Jan Hajek’s sidelining with a knee injury.
