Germany player Kohlschreiber out of Davis Cup

Philipp Kohlschreiber has pulled out of Germany’s Davis Cup

match against Argentina this weekend because of illness.

The German tennis federation says Kohlschreiber has a stomach

flu and won’t be able to play in the best-of-five series in

Bamberg. Kohlschreiber is ranked No. 31 and is Germany’s No. 2

player after Florian Mayer at No. 21.

Kohlschreiber’s absence could mean that veteran Tommy Haas gets

the chance to play singles.

Captain Patrik Kuehnen still has not said who will replace

Kohlschreiber.
