Raonic with­draws from Mi­ami

New Straits Times - - Sport -

MI­AMI: Third-seeded Mi­los Raonic of Canada with­drew from the Mi­ami Open on Sun­day with a ham­string in­jury.

Raonic had been sched­uled to play Amer­i­can qual­i­fier Jared Don­ald­son in a third-round match.

“It’s re­lated to the pre­vi­ous in­jury I sus­tained al­most four weeks ago... in Del­ray Beach,” he told reporters. “It’s the same mus­cle in the ham­string up high.

“It got pro­gres­sively worse af­ter my first round. It seemed like it was not pos­si­ble for me to com­pete to­day with­out putting my­self at sig­nif­i­cant risk.”

Raonic said he would not re­turn un­til he felt 100 per cent fit again. Reuters
