More players have withdrawn from the upcoming National Bank Open. The tournament is set to be played in Toronto from August 5.
As per recent reports, some big names have already ruled themselves out of the competition.
The most notable name is the current world number Serbia’s legendary tennis Novak Djokovic.
Other than him, the likes of home favourite Canada’s Denis Shapovalov is now also out of the competition.
The other three big players who will not take part in the event include Russia’s Karen Khachanov, Croatia’s Marin Cilic and Australia’s Nick Kyrgios.
Khachanov has not played in the recent past because of a stress fracture and it seems that the same injury has ruled him out of the upcoming competition as well.
On the other hand, Cilic has already announced that he will not take part in the North American tour because of a knee injury.
Out of all those players, Kyrgios' absence remains the only one who would’ve definitely surprised many as the 2022 Wimbledon finalist has suffered from fitness concerns and has not played in any of the major competitions this year.
