Re: Confirmed. Nadal withdraws from Toronto.

Sad to see him WD. Good for Federer and Djokovic when looking at the race for nr.1 though...

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Re: Ferrer, Verdasco & Monfils withdraws from Toronto

There's an article in a non English language where federer commits to playing Toronto next week. even if he wins Olympics the field should be so weak it'd be mental not to pla it. Top guys can vulture too.

Agreed. It's difficult to see him not playing. He's defending 1000 points.
Federer only defends 90 and Nadal 10 there.
If Federer does better than Djokovic in the Olympics, I would say he is a lock to skip Toronto and focus on Cincinnati and the US Open.

Re: Will Toronto be a washout?

nadal and ferrer are a loss for sure
but its still a strong field
and nole,fed, muzzah are still the 3 strongest HC players

If he, in fact, does that then the Serb is really playing high stakes poker with his own season. Because he also has a final in Cincy to defend and Cincy happens to be the best practice for USO not Rogers cup. Is he going to risk skipping Cincy then?

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.

Well,all the top guys are commited to play but the decision to actually play the tournament will be made at the end of the week.
It`s tough to say right now how tired the players will be after Sunday.He can easily change his mind if he has to play 5 sets and then do lots of promotional stuff the next day.

Yup, no doubt. The poor injured warrior is barely walking yet watch him win the USO in 3 weeks' time

I doubt he is thinking of points and defending a title right now.He surely doesn`t want to make a mistake like last year playing Davis Cup after Us Open without any preparation and getting himself injured.
The decision if he will play will probably be made Sunday or Monday.If he has to play 5 sets and then travel to Serbia to present a medal it will be tough to regroup and with the travel and fast surface change it can easily result in an injury

Re: Will Toronto be a washout?

If Djokovic plays here and manages to play in Cincy as well, then he'd be quite tired for the USO, peak or no peak. I reckon he should skip, so I hope he doesn't .

Re: Will Toronto be a washout?

I think an event like Rogers Cup is prime stuff for Milos to win cuz A) its slow hard court and it gives Raonic time to bash that ball and B) its in Canada and C) all the top players will be tired from the Olympics and D) he's rested.

I say Milos will reach the semi-finals at the very least. He will either reach semis, finals or win the whole thing!

He should do well, but it depends on his draw. Milos is prone to getting the worst possible draw though
