Re: Ferrer, Verdasco & Monfils withdraws from Toronto

Almagro should withdraw as well, or has he already? I don't know what he's been thinking playing these last few tournaments injured and clearly in pain, though at least the effort in the Olympics was understandable and I think worth it.

He definitely proved that he can manage the pain before
but the pain isn't the issue, IT'S the movement that can't be helped.

No it's not official. Toronto it's still in Roger's schedule although he has said in an interview that he would revise his schedule after the olympics because he has played a lot of tennis in the first half of the season.

Imo Roger skipping Toronto it's almost a lock since Roger will now play 2 more matches, the last one on sunday.

lol you think team Nadal is ready to retire when this season he won a grand slam, dominated the clay season, and finaled at AO? Not a chance.

I think what you are misunderstanding is how seriously Nadal takes being prepared for a Grand Slam. he is unwilling to not be ready and in perfect shape for the US OPEN because he is not wiling another "Rosol' tournament occur

This looks worse than Hamburg 2006.

that is well known and obvious..... you are a fool if you doubt a player when they actually are missing events and well recorded of seeing doctors and doing recovery methods.

it has been a very slow healing of his body, which often happens as players age more

Pretty sure everybody will be at Toronto. Roger is trying to push the weeks at #1 record as much as possible.


Seeing Ferrer as a top4 seed in big tournaments makes my blood boil, hope he draws Tsonga.

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.
Don;t get why they will withdraw cause the earliest they are going to play is wednesday.
