TORONTO, ON (August 1, 2023) – Canadian Denis Shapovalov is withdrawing from the National Bank Open presented by Rogers in Toronto due to a knee injury, Tennis Canada confirmed on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old most recently played at Wimbledon, where he reached the round of 16. Shapovalov’s best performance at the National Bank Open came in 2017 when he reached the semi-finals as a wild card, beating No. 1 seed Rafael Nadal in an epic third round match at IGA Stadium.

Despite being unable to play, Shapovalov will take part in the on-court ceremony just prior to the night session of Monday, August 7 to honor Team Canada presented by Sobeys’ Davis Cup champions.

Nick Kyrgios and Pablo Carreno Busta have also confirmed their withdrawals. As a result, Emil Ruusuvuori, J.J. Wolf and Kei Nishikori will now gain automatic entry into the main draw.
