The owner of a record 17 Grand Slam titles did recently complain about a bad back, however. Federer, who turns 32 next Thursday, made the unusual move of participating in a pair of minor clay-court tournaments in the period between playing on Wimbledons grass and shifting to the North American summer hard-court season. A loss to 116th-ranked Sergiy Stakhovsky in the second round at the All England Club ended Federers streak of reaching the quarter-finals at 36 consecutive major tournaments. It also marked Federers earliest Grand Slam exit since 2003.

I look forward to competing there in the future." He won the Rogers Cup when it was played in Toronto in 2004 and 2006. Federer lost to Novak Djokovic in the 2007 final at Montreal.

In addition, the tournament announced Friday that Viktor Troicki and Marin Cilic wont compete. Troicki was recently suspended for 18 months by the International Tennis Federation for failing to provide blood for a drug test. He is appealing that ruling. Cilic pulled out of Wimbledon, citing an injury; he reportedly is facing a doping suspension, but the ITF has not confirmed or denied whether that is true. Ivan Dodig of Croatia and Pablo Andujar of Spain were added to the Montreal field. Nike Air Max Mädchen . -- Ryan Clady rejected both a $50 million offer and the chance to talk about it.
