Mario Ancic withdrew from Croatia's quarterfinal with Argentina on Friday because of a back injury, hitting his country's Davis Cup title defense. Ancic had to be carried from the court Wednesday after pinching a nerve in his back during training. He felt better Thursday, but said his chances of playing the second match against David Nalbandian were slim.
