Rafael Nadal has become the latest high-profile player to withdraw from next week’s Rogers Cup in Toronto:
I am disappointed to announce I won’t be able to come to Toronto to play this year. I only started practicing a week ago after my wrist injury and I am not ready to play such an important event. I am very much looking forward to playing in Toronto in a couple of years since I have always been treated great in that tournament and have a lot of great Canadian fans.
“Roger and Rafa are two of the most popular players in the world and not having them in Toronto is extremely unfortunate,” said tournament director Karl Hale.
The Rogers Cup is set to begin Monday.
