Tennis Betting: Federer pulls out of Rogers Cup
By Andrew Scott Wednesday, 7 August 2013 01:07
Roger Federer announced that he pulled out of the ATP Montreal tennis tournament, leaving many of the player’s tennis betting fans very concerned about his fitness.
The player – very famous for his great talent and tennis odds – had problems with a back injury since his loss to Sergiy Stakhovsky at Wimbledon in the second round, and in two clay-court events he made additional early exits to low-ranked players.
Tennis betting fans saw that last week Federer suffered a 6-3 6-4 loss to German Daniel Brands in the Swiss Open’s second round in Gstaad, after which he said that the back problem was proving to be difficult to beat.
“I am disappointed not to be playing in Montreal next week,” Federer said on his Facebook page. “It is a great tournament with amazing fans. I look forward to competing there in the future.”
Pay per head services saw that earlier this week, the Swiss ace, who was testing a new larger racket since his exit at Wimbledon, said that he first complained of pain in his back in Germany last month, where was defeated by Federico Delbonis, world No 114 – and many tennis betting fans wonder how his fitness will continue.
“I’ve had serious problems with the back; I had to get some anti-inflammatories in Hamburg due to the pain,” he said.
“I will have to do a lot of exercises and see how it all feels. My main priority now is to fix my back. I would love to be able to train at 100 percent.
“I’ll have to see if the rehab is enough to let me play in Montreal. If it is, I’ll go; if not, then it gives me another week.”
Tennis betting fans and pay per head services can’t wait, as in Montreal, Novak Djokovic will defend his Rogers Cup title, as Andy Murray returns to action for the first time since he defeated the Serbian in the final at Wimbledon.
