As the clay and grass court tournaments wind up, the hardcourt Masters events will be soon getting on board at Rogers Cup 2019 and the draw for the tournament will be out in a few hours. The defending champion and the top-seed, Rafael Nadal is the only ‘Big Three’ contender in the tournament as Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic decide to take an extended break from tennis before they commence their US Open Series.

Besides them, there are few others from the tour who will be missing the Canadian event due to their on-going injuries and other engagements in life.
