Rumor has it that there have been a couple of Rafael Nadal sightings so far this week.

Kei Nishikori said sayonara after arriving on site as did Gael Monfils and Milos Raonic. Roger Federer’s unexpected announcement that he tweaked his back in Montreal and needed to rest this week capped off the volley of bad news. Continue reading Tennis is Served
