Due to steady downpour on Day 4, not a single tennis ball was hit at the Rogers Cup. Andy Murray provided the darkest cloud when he pulled out of his third-round match against Milos Raonic because of a knee injury.
Murray playfully joked he was doing Raonic a favour by paving a way for the Thornhill, Ont., native to reach the final of his hometown tournament. And that is sort of true. The match against Murray had been a promoter's dream (organizers said the night session had been 80% sold). It was a chance for Raonic to test himself against an Olympic champion, a top-4 player in the world. It could have been something special.
Murray's absence leaves the tournament shy on star power and without three of the world's top four players in men's tennis. World No. 3 Rafael Nadal pulled out just prior to the tournament because of injury and announced Thursday he will also miss the ATP Tour's next stop in Cincinnati.
Federer withdrew from the Rogers Cup a day after Nadal, citing the schedule crunch with the Summer Games.
Top-seed and world No. 2 Novak Djokovic was set to play American Sam Querrey on Thursday but that match was delayed by a steady drizzle that wreaked havoc on the day's schedule.
All singles matches were postponed while some doubles matches were shifted to a nearby covered court.
Fans were left with little more to do than visit covered food courts and souvenir shops while they waited for conditions to improve. A helpful Djokovic tried to lighten the mood by sweeping water off the stadium court and even hit a few balls while holding an umbrella.
