Recently, Roger Federer revealed his schedule for the 2020 season and the Rogers Cup was not included in his schedule.
However, the Canadian Open pleaded the Swiss maestro in a series of tweets to participate in their Masters 1000 event in Toronto. While the Cincinnati Masters and Rogers Cup engaged in a raillery for Federer on Twitter.
Earlier, Roger Federer revealed his plans to play the French Open 2020 and divulged that won’t play much before the big-ticket event in Paris. The Swiss divulged that he’ll play the French Open, Halle Open, Wimbledon Championships, Tokyo Olympics 2020 and then maybe Cincinnati Masters and the US Open.
After the 20-time Grand Slam champion disclosed his schedule for the next season – where he is set to miss the Toronto Masters, the Rogers Cup tweeted, “Roger please we’re your cup”.
They also re-tweeted Federer’s schedule and asked Cincinnati Masters to share him.
The Western and Southern Open replied to the Rogers Cup and wrote: “Blame Drake” – Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, actor, and businessman.
The Rogers Cup replied back with memes –
Earlier, the 38-year-old had withdrawn from the 2019 Rogers Cup, after losing Wimbledon Championships 2019 finals against Novak Djokovic as he decided to take some time off the court before commencing the summer hardcourt season in the USA.
The Swiss maestro has now missed the Masters 1000 event in the past two seasons. It will be interesting to see if Federer accepts the request from the Rogers Cup and play the tournament in the next season.
