men's top tennis players continue to fall to injuries

Further to that Federer (back injury sustained during the Montreal final), Raonic (wrist) and Cilic (abductor) have all withdrawn from the Cincinnati M1000 even this week, leaving Thiem, Zverev and Nadal (the new world #1) as the only top 10 players in the draw.
