Tomas Berdych has a shoulder injury and will miss the defending champion Czech Republic's Davis Cup quarterfinal against Kazakhstan next month. The sixth-ranked Berdych says on the Czech team's Facebook page that he felt pain Friday morning, a day after he lost 6-3, 6-3 to Richard Gasquet in the quarterfinals of the Sony Open in Key Biscayne.
