Tokyo: Milos Raonic has pulled out of Canada's David Cup World Group tie against Japan with of a left foot injury.
   
Raonic, who withdrew Thursday, will be replaced by Peter Polansky who was in Tokyo as a reserve but now will be counted upon heavily.
   
Polansky will face a tough task in the opening singles match Friday against world No. 18 Kei Nishikori.
   
Nishikori will be looking to improve on his current four-match Davis Cup winning streak and an overall 10-2 singles record in the team tournament.
   
Frank Dancevic, a 29-year-old veteran of 19 Davis Cup ties, will face Go Soeda in Friday's other singles match at Ariake Colosseum.
