Federer Withdraws from Cincinnati, Assuring Nadal's Return to No.1

Rafael Nadal was thrilled on Monday to learn he would return to world No. 1 for the first time in three years but felt sorry it came because Roger Federer withdrew from this week's Cincinnati Masters tournament.

Zverev, who had lost 6-1, 6-3 to Federer in the Halle final in June, is now tied with Federer for the most titles this season at five.

Roger Federer has withdrawn from the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati. "Unfortunately, I tweaked my back in Montreal and I need to rest this week", he added. It's the first time Nadal has been number one since July of 2014.

Nonetheless, Nadal is nearly certain to enter the US Open as the world No 1, looking to add a second Grand Slam to the French Open he claimed in June.

The men's tennis became real competitive with the championships being won by these players along with Federer and Stan Wawrinka.

"I am very sorry..." The German is yet to reach a Grand Slam quarterfinal, but is expected by many to do well at the upcoming US Open and could be confident heading into Beijing. He had won his last 16 matches, but Zverev, he also knew of great times with nine consecutive wins, including that obtained in the final of the tournament of Washington last Sunday, against the South African Kevin Anderson.
