Emphasizes ATP Scheduling
Citi Open just concluded its second year as a joint ATP-WTA event but

Open champion, who was forced to withdraw from Wimbledon after suffering
a painful fall and is again sitting out this week’s Rogers Cup in
Toronto, is in no doubt defending champion Serena Williams will be the
player to beat in New York.
