Tipsarevic wins Singapore tennis exhibition event


Serbia's Janko Tipsarevic won the Clash of Continents tennis tournament on Sunday evening at the Singapore Indoor Stadium - courtesy of a walkover.

Japan's Kei Nishikori was due to play Tipsarevic, but withdrew earlier because of a wrist strain.

Tipsarevic, the world No. 9 who was representing the continent of Europe, had won both his matches on Saturday against Argentina's Juan Monaco and American Sam Querrey.

Monaco, representing South America, finished runner-up, while Nishikori - the Asian player - was third.
