Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

DEL­RAY BEACH, Fla. – Topseeded Mi­los Raonic with­drew from the Del­ray Beach Open fi­nal Sun­day af­ter in­jur­ing his ham­string a day ear­lier, giv­ing the ti­tle to Jack Sock.

Raonic slightly tore his right ham­string Sat­ur­day night, feel­ing a sharp pain while chas­ing down a drop shot in his semi­fi­nal vic­tory over Juan Martin del Potro.

Raonic tried to ig­nore the dis­com­fort, opt­ing to go to sleep and hop­ing he would feel fine in the morn­ing. In­stead, af­ter get­ting two hours of treat­ment, the 26-year-old Cana­dian ranked fourth in the world hob­bled onto a prac­tice court where Sock was warm­ing up and an­nounced he would be un­able to play.

The third-seeded Sock wound up with his sec­ond ti­tle of the year and moved up to a ca­reer-best 18th in the ATP rankings. The 24-year-old also won last month in New Zealand and helped the U.S. reach the quar­ter­fi­nals of the Davis Cup.
