Tennis: Raonic Pulls Out of World Tour Finals With Injury

Canada’s Milos Raonic has withdrawn from the remainder of the ATP World Tour Finals citing injury.

The World number eight, who lost his two opening Group B matches to Roger Federer and Andy Murray, will not take further part in the tournament at London’s O2 Arena having suffered a quad tear.

“I am sad to announce that I have to withdraw from the rest of this competition, due to a low grade tear in my quad. It was a hard decision…,” he announced on Twitter.

Spain’s David Ferrer- the next alternative to the 23-year-old- is presently in court (2:00 GMT) to take on Japan’s Kei Nishikori.

Murray now has to win against Federer later in the day to keep chances of progressing to the semi-finals alive; otherwise, he will be eliminated.
