Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal on Friday pulled out of the opening Davis Cup playoff singles against India owing to an upset stomach, the tournament's official website stated.

Nadal was to play Indian Ramkumar Ramanathan on Friday.

Feliciano Lopez will replace the former world number one who lost to Frenchman Lucas Pouille in the fourth round of the US Open earlier this month.

Nadal is hoping to feature in Sunday's reverse singles against Saketh Myneni at the RK Khanna stadium in New Delhi, Reuters reported.
