Will Toronto be a washout? Federer, Nadal, Ferrer, Verdasco, Monfils out
 
Rafael Nadal says in his facebook page that he is out of Toronto.

Hi all, wanted to let you know that I won't be playing Toronto this year. I am not ready to play and I hope to be back in 2014 at that great tournament that has always treat me very well. I am continuing with my recup and practice. Thanks!


Unfortunate for him. :sad: 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.

Respectfully,
masterclass

Expected. Do think he will be in Cincy, though.

No surprise, sad news nonetheless.

Nadal's only priority should be winning five more French Opens.

Looks like he's sitting off on Wirral Cycle Path there :lol: Green benches an' all.

He looks homeless there :sad:

I expect he'll be in Cincy, no way would he go into US with no prep. Courts aren't the best for him there, but he definitely needs matches. Maybe he'll ask for a Winstom-Salem WC :eek:

:sad: He had the best shot at Toronto since he wasn't playing the Olympics. News on whether he'll be in Cincy or not?

That bench is full of bird shit. Our hero is sitting on white goo. :sad:

I have a feeling retirement might be on the horizon... He's established himself as the GOAT on clay (at least in terms of achievements), and ended the losing streak to Novak. If his body is telling him it's time to retire then he should listen to it, because really, he has nothing left to prove. :shrug:

Ferrer, Verdasco & Monfils withdraws from Toronto
 
not surprised about Monfils, but Verdasco and Ferrer a little. One more withdrawal in the top 20, and Roddick will be seeded. Also Ferrero is out, sadly i think it's done for him.

With Djoko, Federer, Murray, and Tsonga still playing in Olympics and has to play 2 matches each, Berdych could be the top seed. I think they should have done what Montreal did of a Monday Final and seeds not playing til Thursday.

Fed will most likely withdraw

Give him a chance. It might not be a career threatening injury. Some time off will help. He can still play ;)

Thought that nadal would try and vulture toronto for sure.

Major chance in toronto. Who will step up to the plate and take the title.

Imo Roger won't play there, don't know about djokovic and murray though?
