Unfortunate for him. We should all wish him well and a speedy recovery. He's important to the game.
It doesn't seem the same without him in the mix.

Add Nadal.

Almagro is doubtful.

Agreed. With his game, I think he needs about 10 matches on hard court to be ready against the top players. If he can't get 4 matches in at Cincy, then I doubt he'll be prepared enough for the US Open, unless he does play Winston-Salem.

But who knows, right? I think now his priority is to get healthy, not to rush himself to get back out there and do more damage.

Respectfully,

I congratulate his PR team if that picture is the one accompanying the message :barf:

Re: Confirmed. Nadal withdraws from Toronto.

Let me guess, he has an injury that dates back to Wimbledon?

Expected, Ferrer wouldn't lose against Nishikori at 100%.

Re: Confirmed. Nadal withdraws from Toronto.

tournaments director has to be thrilled. Fed is for sure out, finalists will be also 99% out, probably all semi finalist, Tsonga already looked exhausted in today's match and still has to play two doubles matches, ferrer also playing two doubles matches. should be decent quality Masters 250 tennis in Toronto

Really? One better than Borg and then follow him into early retirement? It would surprise me. I think he wants more titles more than he wants to escape the pain. He can manage pain.

Well, Ferrer is still in the doubles competition at the Olympics so the withdrawal makes sense.

Kohli could also withdraw I think (because he withdrew from the Olympics as well), then out of the guys who are still at London the most of them will probably withdraw, too.

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Wow, he really goes to great length to convince MTF of the seriousness of his problem

Re: Confirmed. Nadal withdraws from Toronto.

nadal's photo?! What kind of message is his PR team trying to convey? Poor, sad and lonely nadal.....

He's got millions in the bank, won all slams, a few months ago won his 7th RG.

As for the retirement talk, just wait and see nadal making at least the final in the US Open. You heard it here first.
