Actually you can never be sure about the date of a birth : if the baby is born 2 or 3 weeks before (I hope not), the fact is that Federer might maybe take part.

Anyway there's a press conference in Montreal tomorrow : maybe we will know a little bit more
Well, actually there is a rumour that the birth date is around Montreal. Probably that's where all the speculation about withdrawal comes from. It is likely that Fed has already made up his mind about whether or not to participate, but usually this kind of information comes from his official website. So we just have to wait until official announcement (if the is one).


Why there is no official information about Ancic's withdrawal? At least I cannot find it.

Why is Gasquet still in the list. Surely he is out.

I thought he was included in the list automatically, as a Top30 player. Maybe the officials want to wait till the announcement of the verdict.

Oh I guess. I just thought that because he was suspended he couldn't enter anything or be entered but I suppose he would still qualify automatically by ranking you're right.

Well, you know that the current suspension ends on July 12th, so I guess that's why he was included in Montreal and Cincy entry lists, since there is no official information about the length of the probable ban yet.

Thanks, but I meant articles/announcements which include the reason of withdrawal. Sorry for not making myself clear.

I only post official entry/withdrawal information. The ATP doesn't send out a press release every time a player withdraws. That's up to the tournament/player.

I know that. That's why I asked here, maybe some of the board members found articles on this topic. It will be much appreciated if they post them here or in the player forum, that's it.
But thanks anyway.

If you have no more information, I guess he still has the same illness which had prevented him from playing in the last months, including this week Davis Cup

Well, while withdrawing from Roland Garros, Wimbledon and Davis Cup Mario said that he wasn't fit enough to play five-setters. That's not really the case with Masters 1000, so that's why I'm wondering. I'm afraid that something bigger than "not fit enough" is going on wrong with him lately.

Here's a link to yesterday's press conference by the tournament director
http://www.montrealgazette.com/sport...194/story.html

Not very optimistic concerning Federer However, I have to admit he's right: the baby must take precedence over the Masters

Federer might give up because of the birth of the child

They've got Ancic, Nalbandian and Gasquet removed from the list (Ancic officially withdrawn).

Next in will be (in order): B Becker, Seppi, Tipsarevic, Nieminen and Clément.

Hewitt and JC Ferrero have asked for wild cards, and most probably will get them - especially Hewitt.
Baghdatis asked, but there's no chance and the Vancouver 100K Challenger is going to try to get him to play there.
