David Ferrer announced on Wednesday that he will not take part in the Coupe Rogers, the Canadian Masters 1000 in Montreal, due to an ongoing elbow injury.

The Spaniard, number seven in the world’s rankings, made the announcement through his Twitter account:


Ferrer has not played a match since his second-round defeat in the ATP250 of Nottingham, the week before Wimbledon. Because of his injury, he was forced to skip the third Grand Slam of the season (his first absence at a major since 2003), the tournaments of Båstad and Hamburg, as well as the Davis Cup tie against Russia.
