2) Djokovic’s Agenda
World No.1 Novak Djokovic is the clear favorite to win the tournament. Playing his first tournament since a shocking 3rd round exit at Wimbledon, Djokovic will look to get back on track by eyeing the Rogers Cup as a preparation event for the Olympics. While others have chosen to withdraw, Djokovic can see this as a warm-up to his goal of winning the Olympics Gold. After capping an already splendid season, he will look to gain some more ranking points, and continue his established dominance at the top. A strong performance here would mean sending a message to the rest of the tour.
