Nishikori, Raonic lead Japan-Canada Davis Cup tie


TORONTO: Kei Nishikori, last year’s US Open runner-up, and Milos Raonic, a semi-finalist last year at Wimbledon, will provide star power to next week’s Japan-Canada first-round Davis Cup tie at Vancouver. The team line-ups announced on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) for the March 6 to 8 matchup on an indoor hard court at Thunderbird Sports Centre find fifth-ranked Nishikori joined by Go Soeda, Tatsuma Ito and Yasutaka Uchiyama leading the visitors. Sixth-ranked Raonic, on an eight-match home soil win streak in Davis Cup play, will spark a Canadian side that also includes Frank Dancevic, Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil.
