Nadal Medvedev US Open 2019

Daniil Medvedev and Rafael Nadal headline strong field in Toronto

World number two Daniil Medvedev and Rafael Nadal both feature at the Toronto Masters 1000 as they prepare for the US Open later this month.

Rafael Nadal, who has lifted the Canadian title on five occasions, beat Daniil Medvedev in the final of the most recent edition in 2019.

Stefanos Tsitsipas, who recently ousted the Spaniard from the top three in the rankings, will also compete alongside Andrey Rublev, home favourite Denis Shapovalov and Italian star Jannik Sinner.

Two-time champion Roger Federer has withdrawn from the event due to injury, whilst world number one Novak Djokovic is also absent after his exploits in Tokyo.

Should Nadal lift the title, his first since Rome in May, he would go level with Ivan Lendl for the most Toronto Masters titles with six.
