Now, at least he gets another week to recover for USO, compared to him injuring himself in Cinci.
This sucks, but his USO hopes are not quite done yet.
Plus the USO is a Slam, old man always boosts himself at the big venues.

He still has at least a couple of years to win 7 titles (one being a slam), still plenty of time, no need to panic.

FFS, he's 36 yo!!!!!

Better if he put in a solid extra week of training and then play in much more game-friendly Cincinnati.

Now, no Montreal title. No Cinci AT ALL.
And put his USO title preparation at absolute risks.

So, many of us who believed he should not play Montreal have been justified.

We can't see future , Federer too. With early exit in Cinci he would't have any match practice , and he had couple of great example of early exit in Cinci just like glorious victories.
Now as Montreal goes wrong away , is't too severe ? I think he might be good even today , he have match practice , some light practice for a week and he would be ready..

BorgATP He'll complete 100 next year hopefully and I know I'm reaching here but with a clay master which has eluded him all the while

Like Rafa said in his interview today - this is pro sports.
