Andy Murray withdraws from Rogers Cup, Nadal & Federer becomes the Top seeds

Andy Murray withdraws from Rogers Cup, Nadal & Federer becomes the Top seeds

World number one Andy Murray has withdrawn from next week’s Rogers Cup in Montreal as he continues to recover from a hip injury, Tennis Canada has announced.

Murray has been in rehabilitation from the problem that ruined his Wimbledon campaign, but the tournament in Canada comes too soon.

 He said on the tournament’s official website: “I am sad to be missing the tournament in Montreal because I have many great memories from my time in Canada.

“I am doing everything I can to return as quickly as possible.”

His withdrawal casts further doubt on his fitness for the US Open, which begins later this month.

Tennis Canada announced Murray’s withdrawal Thursday, hours after No. 6 and Wimbledon finalist Marin Cilic pulled out and a day after No. 4 Stan Wawrinka announced he would not be participating because of a knee injury.

Murray said he needs more time to recover from a hip injury. This is the second consecutive year that Murray will miss Canada’s Masters 1000 event after competing in the tournament every year from 2006-2016.

Murray is a three-time Rogers Cup champion. Cilic posted his best Canadian result in 2008 when he reached the quarter-finals.

“We would have liked for Andy to be able to defend his title that he won here in 2015, but we wish him a very speedy recovery and to Marin Cilic as well following his great run at Wimbledon,” said Eugene Lapierre, the tournament director of Rogers Cup in Montreal, said in a statement.

Following the withdrawal of Murray, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer will now be the top two seeds in Montreal and will be placed at the top and bottom of the draw. Rising stars Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev will round out the top four.

Qualifying for the Rogers Cup begins Saturday, with the main draw starting Monday.
