Tennis: Berdych to miss Davis Cup quarterfinals

Top Czech tennis player Tomáš Berdych will miss the Davis Cup quarterfinals against Kazachstan next weekend. The 28-year-old player, ranked sixth in the world, said he could not play due to a shoulder injury he suffered during his US tour. The defending champions Czech Republic will rely on Radek Štepánek, who returns after a two-month break caused by neck surgery, along with Lukáš Rosol, Jan Hájek and Ivo Minář.
