Wimbledon finalist Marin Cilic has withdrawn from next week’s Canadian Open in Montreal due to an adductor injury.
In a Facebook post, the Croatian said:
With great regret I have to announce that I won’t be able to participate at the upcoming ATP Masters 1000 event in Montreal, to be played next week.
Until the very last moment I was hoping that improvement concerning my injury will be good enough, but I am forced to withdraw from the Coupe Rogers event.
During the Wimbledon tournament last month I have suffered aductor injury and the healing process is ongoing but it is slower than I would want to.
I believe I don’t need to underline how sad I feel now, not being able to participate in Montreal, after some great tennis I played during the last few months and reaching the Grand Slam singles final for the second time in my career.
Montreal is one of the biggest events of the year, it was meant to be my first event since the Wimbledon final, and it all made my decision to pull out of the event even tougher.
Hope to be back in full competitive mode very soon, thank you all for your support and see you soon!
Cilic is still slated to return to Cincinnati where he will be the defending champion.
Stan Wawrinka is also out of Canada as is Novak Djokovic who will miss the rest of 2017. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are both in and as of now so too is Andy Murray. Murray was bothered by a hip issue during the grass season leaving many to speculate the world No. 1 could miss some summer hard court events.
A decision or confirmation from Murray should come later today or tomorrow at the latest.
