by IANS | Updated Jan 05, 2023
Cilic, who was scheduled to play Dutch player Tallon Griekspoor in the last-eight match, sustained an injury during the warm-up.
"Very sorry that I couldn't come out again today to compete. Today during the warm-up I injured my knee and unfortunately it didn't get better until I was about to go out on the court," Cilic said in a statement released by the organisers.
"Thanks to the fans for the great support this week, it was fantastic. I'm looking forward to return to India in the future to compete over here again," he added.
Griekspoor will play Aslan Karatsev in the semifinals, who has defeated Pedro Martinez 6-1, 6-2 in the quarterfinals.
