Not entirely surprising news but Roger has just withdrawn from the Rogers Cup in Toronto. You can see his statement below:
I have made the tough decision to withdraw from the Rogers Cup. Toronto is one of my favorite events on the calendar and I am disappointed that I won’t be able to compete in front of the great tennis fans in Canada. Looking ahead, it is best for me that I take more time after Wimbledon. I look forward to coming back to Canada next year and I wish Karl Hale and everyone at Tennis Canada a very successful tournament.
It goes against what he said in press after the Wimbledon loss to Raonic where he said he intended to play as he didn't want another long break. But obviously post Wimbledon he's not fit enough to play. There's no talk of an injury so who knows exactly what the reasoning is but it can't be purely scheduling reasons as he's not played any tennis this year.
What do you guys think?
