Nadal pulls out Cincinnati for US Open preparations

Rafael Nadal 'Federer and Djokovic withdrawals do not make things easier'

Rafael Nadal 'Federer and Djokovic withdrawals do not make things easier'

Rafael Nadal withdrew from the Cincinnati Masters for the second year in a row after polishing off his US Open preparation with a Montreal title yesterday.

"I will not be alone there".

"I knew how it was going to be, I was kind of ready for it". "I did a lot of things well: changing directions, changing rhythm during the point".

Top seed and defending champion Rafa Nadal overcame a slow start to beat British qualifier Dan Evans 7-6 (6) 6-4 while Stefanos Tsitsipas and John Isner both fell in second-round upsets at the Rogers Cup in Montreal on Wednesday.

The world No. 1 Serb has clashed with many fellow players with disagreements centered on the decision to dispense with the services of ATP chief executive Chris Kermode, a popular figure in tennis.

Gimelstob, who has sat on the council, earlier this year pleaded no contest to assault charges in Los Angeles for attacking a man in front of his wife and children last year.

"I have friendly relationship with Justin", said Djokovic at Wimbledon.

Video games aren't to blame for real-world violence, experts say
Gov Dan Patrick , a fellow Republican, who pointed the finger at a "video game industry that teaches young people to kill". The trade body said more than 165 million Americans enjoy video games, and billions of people play video games worldwide.

"[There have been some] tough moments in terms of discussions - a lot of important things to have to be done", Nadal said in vague reference to various ATP situations.

Nadal took a 4-3 lead by breaking to 15 when Pella sent a forehand well long, as he eased into the last eight and past Federer for most ATP Masters 1000 victories. But I didn't manage to probably show my best tennis.

"It's just trying to help the game to be better".

Neither of the pair have played since their Wimbledon final a month ago won by Djokovic. We have been there in the past.

Nadal, playing his first match since losing to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon semi-finals, fell behind 5-2 in the tiebreak before roaring back to prevail in his first career meeting with world number 53 Evans.

Tsitsipas was angry that he could not challenge the call since there was no Hawkeye review system available to the players on the outside court. "That's why we are there now".
