Almagro out of Spain's Davis Cup with Canada
MADRID -- Nicolas Almagro has withdrawn from Spain's Davis Cup first-round tie against Canada because of an injury.
The Spanish tennis federation said Saturday that Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, ranked 85th, will take Almagro's place in his debut for Spain's national team.
Media reports said Almagro, who reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, has a leg injury.
With Nadal out, Ferrer led Spain to last year's final and lost to the Czech Republic.
Canada will be led by 15th-ranked Milos Raonic.
