World No. 7 Marin Cilic on Friday pulled out of next week’s Maharashtra Open tennis tournament, citing a nagging knee injury.

Portugal’s Pedro Sousa will now enter the main draw after the withdrawal of the second-seeded Croatian, who made the announcement through Instagram.

“I am sad to announce I have had to pull out of the Tata Open Maharashtra. My sincerest apologies to the fans and organizers,” posted Cilic.

“I will miss celebrating New Year’s in India this year as I have done for so many years now, but I hope to continue my New Year’s tradition there next year!

“Happy Holidays to all and I look forward to seeing many of you in Australia,” he said.
