Federer to play at Montreal after 2011

Roger Federer confirms he will play in 2017 Rogers Cup returns to Montreal after six years

Federer last played in Montreal at the 2011 Rogers Cup, a tournament where he fell to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the early rounds.

The world No 6 says he suffered the injury at Wimbledon where he lost to Roger Federer 3-6 1-6 4-6 in the final.

Having not dropped a single set throughout the tournament, the win was Federer's fifth title of 2017 in what has been a major career resurgence for the 35-year-old.

'I'm happy to be coming back to Montreal, as I have not had the chance to play there for many years, ' Federer said.

British actor Robert Hardy dies aged 91
He played Churchill seven times, including in Winston Churchill: The Wilderness Years , for which he won a Bafta in 1982. He also befriended actor Richard Burton in a college theater club. "And I thought he was presumptuous and tiresome".

Despite missing out on the second Grand Slam event of the year, the French Open, Federer defied all odds to lift his eight Wimbledon title at SW19.

The Rogers Cup will be Federer's first hard-court event in the build to up to the US Open, and he said on Tuesday: "I'm happy to be coming back to Montreal, as I have not had the chance to play there for many years". For that reason, his participation in any event, except for the non-clay Grand Slams, is questionable until a formal statement on the matter is released. Tuesday marks his 36th birthday, and the 19-time major victor can expect a warm reception from his Canadian supporters.

Cilic's priority will surely now be to get as fit as possible before the US Open, which starts on August 28.

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. His first came in 2004 and then in 2006.
