Roger Federer withdraws from the Rogers Cup

July 29, 2015

Montreal, July 29, 2015 – Rogers Cup presented by National Bank Tournament Director, Eugène Lapierre, announced today the withdrawal of world no. 2 Roger Federer of Switzerland.

“I am disappointed that I won’t be playing in Montreal because it’s a tournament and a city that I really enjoy and has incredible fans. My family and I have always received first class treatment from Tournament Director, Eugène Lapierre, and his team and I hope to be back in the future,” said Federer.

Federer has won the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank on two occasions in Toronto in 2004 and 2006. He also reached the Montreal final in 2007 where he fell to Novak Djokovic and finished runner up last year in Toronto to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Federer has played the Canadian ATP Masters 1000 event eleven times in his career.

“We are obviously disappointed to have Roger withdraw as it is always a privilege to watch him play,” said Eugène Lapierre. “We also understand his decision because, above all, he has always been very loyal to our event and we would love to see him play tennis for many more years to come.”

Jerzy Janowicz of Poland will take Federer’s place in the main draw.

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.

adidas Tennis men’s and women’s Fall 2015 apparel and footwear availability

July 24, 2015

An intense summer of action is about to begin at Wimbledon and will conclude at the US Open in New York. Ready for the demands that the grass and hard-court season bring forth, the adidas team of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Ana Ivanovic, Gilles Simon, Simona Halep, Dominic Theim and Caroline Wozniacki are all set to debut the Fall 2015 collection for adidas Tennis.

Beginning with the men, Tsonga, Simon and Thiem will look to carry their strong clay court form to the lawns of London and then the asphalt of NYC. Key men’s pieces to watch out for this summer begin with the Fall adizero Crew in blue with solar red and solid grey with solar red, as well the Fall adizero Polo in the same color ways. The Fall Barricade Chill Crew and Fall Barricade Crew will also be essential pieces this summer and you can never go wrong with some camo in wardrobe, courtesy of the Fall Response Camo Berm Short in black with white.

You’ll have an abundance of shoes to choose from this Fall by adidas, starting off with the Novak Djokovic’s adidas Novak Pro 2015 in navy (hard-court season) and red, white and blue for the US Open. Barricade 2015 will be out in full force this Summer with the latest yellow colorway for this shoe. Built to last the longest of five set matches, the Barricade 2015 is by far the best iteration of this shoe to date. Finally, players that are looking for even more court speed will be delighted with the all-new Ubersonic shoe in white, blue and black. Highlighted as the flagship sneaker for the Adizero line, the Ubersonic features light-weight materials, a sock like feel and spring frame technology to keep your foot in place during rigorous movement.

*****

The ladies of the court have a lot to look forward to as well during Fall 2015. Beginning with the ever-popular Stella McCartney collection, fans will be eager to try on the Fall Stella Wimbledon Tank in white for Wimbledon and wonder glow for the US Open. This slim and trim piece will keep even the most demanding player secure and cool during the Summer. Our personal favorite piece for Fall 2015 comes in the form of the Fall adizero Dress in both maroon with solar red and frozen yellow with silver metallic and midnight indigo. This eye-catching piece offers a handprint on each garment that isn’t duplicated and light fabrics that feel great under the racer back and scoop neck design.

Footwear for Fall 2015 also comes up big for adidas this year, courtesy of the Barricade 2015 aSMC in ice grey, legacy blue (navy), amber yellow, white. This great rendition of the Barricade features full mesh knit upper which provides breathability. A newly designed mesh upper provides overall comfort with an internal bootie to add stability for lateral movements.

Last but not least, the adizero CC Tempaia III in pink with white and green promises to bring you the same style that it does for Ivanovic. Loaded with great technology, the adizero CC Tempaia III provides a new climacool mesh upper, an adiWEAR outsole and a TORSION SYSTEM for a stable platform.

The complete Fall 2015 adidas tennis collection is now available for purchase at TennisWarehouse.com. For our European readers, the same great selection is currently available at TennisWarehouse-Europe.com. Here’s to looking your best during Wimbledon and the US Open in 2015!
