Montreal, July 31, 2013 – Rogers Cup presented by National Bank Tournament Director Eugène Lapierre announced Wednesday the withdrawal of world no. 8 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France.
“I am sorry that I won’t be able to play in Montreal, a tournament and a city with friendly fans that I really appreciate,” said Tsonga. “I need to continue to rehab my knee that I injured at Wimbledon. I hope to be ready for the U.S. Open at the end of August. I wish everyone a great Rogers Cup and Canada, I will see you soon.”
Tsonga was forced to withdraw from his second round match at Wimbledon because of a left knee injury and has not played a match since June 26. The last time he came to Montreal in 2011, he reached the semifinals before falling to eventual champion Novak Djokovic of Serbia.
Tickets for the tournament are still available and can be purchased online at www.RogersCup.com, by phone at 1-855-TENNIS-0, or in person at Uniprix Stadium in Montreal.
