Roger Federer confirms his participation but STAR Player withdraws of Rogers Cup

Roger Federer confirms his participation but STAR Player withdraws of Rogers Cup

Roger Federer will make his first appearance in Montreal since 2011 at next week’s Rogers Cup, when he begins his North American summer swing.

The Swiss superstar has not competed in Canada since a 2014 final loss to Tsonga when the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament was held in Toronto.

“I’m happy to be coming back to Montreal, as I have not had the chance to play there for many years,” said Federer. “This 2017 season has been very exciting and I am really looking forward to being back on the court on the ATP Tour.”
In preparation for the U.S. Open, Federer will head to Montreal eyeing his third crown at the ATP 1000 event.

Federer, who holds a 31-2 win-loss record this year, turns 36 on Tuesday – a day after the tournament begins. The Canadian hardcourt event alternates between Montreal and Toronto with a WTA event every year.

Stan Wawrinka withdraws of Rogers Cup 

Stan Wawrinka announced on Wednesday that he has withdrawn from the Montreal event and also the Western & Southern Cup in Cincinnati – due to a knee injury.

“After much consideration and consultation with my doctors and my team, I have decided to skip Canada and Cincinnati to be on the safe side, although I’ve been battling hard to be fit for these events,” said Wawrinka.

“It’s hugely disappointing for my fans and for myself that I have to make this decision. But I need to be 100 per cent confident before I resume competition that the injury that has plagued at Wimbledon has been resolved. My team and I are doing everything to make this a speedy recovery.”

Wawrinka, who is currently No. 4 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, struggled with knee problems during the grass-court swing at the Aegon Championships & Wimbledon.
