Hopefully Federer,Djokovic and Murray withdraw too.Would be great that someone else wins a Masters tournament.

it would be a great oppertunity for everyone else but on the other hand, as far as the tournament goes it would be a disaster really. No top players, they'd have a hard time selling tickets even with canadians in the draw

The calendar was set a long time ago,so the organisers have to expect that the top players might skip it this year,if they do well at the Olympics.
It certainly can be a strange tournament,like Bercy in the past

I do like a little unpredictability myself, i just hope that in the end we get a strong winner and not some fluke completely out of left field like monaco

yes, they have to expect it but that doesnt change the fact that it will make things hard on them if as many of the top players that are expected to withdraw do

And because if he reaches the final here in the Olympics (win or lose) and THEN plays rogers cup and cincy, his chances to defend the USO will drastically go down at some point. Does he want to defend USO or does he want to defend the #1 ranking and rogers cup? If he thinks he can do both after the Olympics.. and somehow pulls it off, more power to him. But in reality, he will probably be feeling it physically, you can bet on that, if he plays so much. Assuming your suggested scenario happens of course. He may just opt to skip rogers.
I agree with this. Djokovic is not known for playing every week. He is not Thomas Muster. To expect him to play to the end of three straight weeks, with a change both of surface and continent in the middle, and to do this as preparation for this year's last major, is to expect a lot. I don't think he will play in Canada.

The injury had to happen some time after the Rosol match because in the interview after that match Nadal said the Rosol loss was a big blow because he was in shape to win Wimbledon again.

Whatever, I hope to see Nadal in a good state of mind and back on court soon.

Re: Ferrer, Verdasco & Monfils withdraws from Toronto

some of you guys are over reacting a little bit. first of all, Rogers Cup is one of the oldest and most prestigious tournaments in the world. I'm pretty sure that Djokovic, Federer and Murray will be there, and there you go ... everyone is happy.

they have to prioritize. All 3 have made deep runs and will be playing this weekend at the olympics and all 3 will have commitments after they have finished. Its a tight turn around between the olympics, cinci and the US open and they wont want to tire themselves out before the US open.

If they have to cut a tournament then the rogers cup seems likely

Re: Confirmed. Nadal withdraws from Toronto.

Never in doubt that ignorant haters would insult Nadal's photo. He's sent out pictures like this ever since he joined Facebook. He's not sad or lonely. He looks like he does in most pictures.

The bulge in his pants is great in this photo.

Someone earlier posted that should Federer win over Delpo then Djokovic can't reclaim number one even if he wins Toronto and Federer skips it. Djokovic has 1,000 points to defend while Federer defends 90.

That bulge is the stinking banana that he carries to every tennis court.
