Roger Federer has withdrawn from next month’s Rogers Cup 2018 in Toronto as the 36-year-old continues to carefully manage his schedule.
The world No 2 announced on Monday that he will miss the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event, which is held from August 6-12
Federer said in a statement: “I’m so disappointed not to play at the Rogers Cup this summer.
“I wish the tournament every success and am sorry to miss it.”
Though Federer won’t be in attendance, other luminaries of the sport will still be in participation — such as Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev, and Canadians Milos Raonic and Denis Shapovalov.
The Rogers Cup runs from Aug. 4 to 12 in Toronto for the men, while the women’s tournament will play out in Montreal from Aug. 3 to 12.
