Nishikori advances to quarterfinals at Indian Wells
Australian star Nick Kyrgios withdrew from his ATP Indian Wells Masters showdown with Roger Federer on Friday, blaming food poisoning for a sudden illness that left him unable to play. "And I think Rafa knew that he had to do some of that, too", Federer said, as quoted on tennisworldusa.org. "At this stage we think it's food poisoning, and I'm praying it's nothing more".
Australian Kyrgios had beaten Djokovic in the quarter-finals in Acapulco nearly two weeks ago in their first career meeting, and repeated the feat on Wednesday to reach the last eight, where he will face Federer.
Federer, 35, goes on to face Jack Sock, who beat Japan's Kei Nishikori.
Everyone was left baffled by Rostov's bench against Man Utd
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Juan Mata returned to the United line up, with Marcus Rashford and Ashley Young dropping to the bench. First-choice goalkeeper Soslan Dzhanaev could be fit to return after missing last week's game with an injury.
"I don't take these decisions lightly, these are the matches we train for, but I'm in no fit state to take the court". Wednesday's match was just the fifth time they weren't opposing each other in a final.
However, Federer will have his task cut out against the 21-year-old Australian, who is in fine form on hard courts in the current season. "It was a really good performance by me, I thought", Federer added.
A break in the first game of the match was enough to give Kyrgios the opening set. I played one tournament where I felt normal past year and that was the Australian Open. Yes Kyrgios can easily switch to that mode; that's what he did against Novak Djokovic at Acapulco quarterfinals earlier this month (7-6 7-5), and at Indian Wells this week (6-4 7-6), when he put Djokovic's three years winning streak to an end, denying the defending champion even a single break point.

But their sudden transformation under Craig Shakespeare raises many questions. "Incredible. I can't quite believe it", Morgan said. "We've pulled off the impossible again".
The Australian tennis player won 6-4 7-6 and forced the reigning champion of this tournament to pass the crown to a new victor. "Even I was at 13 (in the world) previous year, but I wasn't in a good place mentally at all".
"Hope you feel better @NickKyrgios", said the Swiss ace, who took the court briefly on Friday to speak to disappointed fans.
The rivalry between 14-time Grand Slam and the 18-time winners is one of the most exciting in the history of tennis. "My mentality is improving, and I am trying really hard to fight for every point and just compete", the Aussie told reporters on Thursday. "When Roger has the advantage, his serve is so good, he has a lot of confidence with his serve, he's able to play much more relaxed".
