Andy Murray to miss Rogers Cup in Toronto

Andy Murray will not be in Toronto next week to defend his Rogers Cup title. The British number one won the title in Montreal last year but won’t be returning to the tournament which begins a few weeks early this year as on Wednesday the Wimbledon champion will be travelling to Mallorca on a training schdule ahead of defending his Olympic Gold medal in Rio in a few weeks time.

Because of this Andy will lose points on Djokovic dropping 1000 for not turning up to defend his title but will still be just under 3000 ahead of Roger Federer in third place on the rankings.

The Olympics is one of those big opportunities to represent your country outside Davis Cup and Fed Cup and Murray took advantage of this in London four years ago winning the Gold in singles and the silver in mixed doubles with Laura Robson and I believe it is the right decision to focus the Olympics.
