FEDERER PULLS OUT OF ROGERS CUP PRESENTED BY NATIONAL BANK

Due to withdrawal, Milos Raonic moves into seeded position in Toronto

Toronto, August 3, 2012 – Tennis Canada announced Friday that world No. 1 Roger Federer has withdrawn from Rogers Cup presented by National Bank in Toronto.

"I am very disappointed that I have to withdraw from Toronto as I love the city and the Canadian fans are amazing. I have always enjoyed playing there but after a long stretch of tournaments, I will need some time to recover,” said Federer. "I look forward to coming back to Canada next year." 

Due to Federer’s withdrawal, Canada’s Milos Raonic now moves into the No. 16 seed position and will receive a first-round bye. The draw to determine first-round match-ups will take place on Saturday.
