Roger that, as Fed con­firms Canada

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Grand Slam king Roger Federer will kick off his North Amer­i­can hard­court cam­paign ahead of the US Open by com­pet­ing in the Aug 6-13 Rogers Cup in Montreal.

“I’m happy to be com­ing back to Montreal, as I have not had the chance to play there for many years,” Federer said on Tues­day.

Federer, who won a record 19th ma­jor at Wim­ble­don last month, is seek­ing his third Rogers Cup ti­tle but first in Montreal, where he has not played since 2011 in an event that al­ter­nates between the Que­bec City and Toronto, where the five-time US Open win­ner reg­is­tered his pre­vi­ous vic­to­ries in 2004 and 2006.
