INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (Reuters) – South African Kevin Anderson has withdrawn from the BNP Paribas (PA:) Open in Indian Wells before his opening match of the tournament due to an elbow injury.

Anderson has been replaced by 19-year-old Serb Miomir Kecmanovic, who will face Maximilian Marterer in the second on Saturday.
