Kei pulls out of Ja­pan’s Davis Cup tie

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Kei Nishikori says he will sit out Ja­pan’s Davis Cup quar­ter­fi­nal against the Czech Repub­lic this weekend due to a groin in­jury.

Nishikori beat Roger Fed­erer in the Sony Open quar­ter­fi­nals last week, but he had to with­draw from the semi­fi­nal against Novak Djokovic be­cause of pain in his left groin.

Nishikori has re­tired or with­drawn 14 times in his ca­reer, in­clud­ing three times in Grand Slam events. He said he won’t need surgery, but he’s un­sure how long he’ll be side­lined.
