Roger Federer has been forced to withdraw from the 2017 Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, Ohio, due to a back injury.

\n

The 19-time Grand Slam winner announced the news Monday—the first day of the tournament—that he picked up a problem as he was runner-up in last week's Rogers Cup in Montreal, per the ATP World Tour: \"I am very sorry to pull out of the Western & Southern Open as I always enjoy playing here. Cincinnati has some of the best fans in the world and I am sorry I will miss them. Unfortunately, I tweaked my back in Montreal and I need to rest this week.\"

Novak Djokovic Illustrated His New Head Racquet

Freaky FrittersCorrespondent IFebruary 21, 2009

Ah! Finally! Novak Djokovic explains why he switched racquets from Wilson to HEAD at a crucial point in his career. It’s all about boobs, baby! And speed. Kind of like a hot rod magazine, but with a French waiter. Uh, okay—just watch the video and you’ll understand!

We’ll see how this improved head speed pays off today, when Djokovic faces Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the semi-finals of Marseilles. He’ll need all the help he can get, considering Jo-Dub leads the head to head 3-1 (Nole’s sole victory was in the finals of the 2008 Australian Open—hey, he has good timing, at least!).

Look forward to more videos from Novak Djokovic and HEAD racquets—this is the first video in a series of six. Visit www.speedlessons.com for more silly stuff and an opportunity to win a racquet like Novak’s.
