The Olympic gold medallist did it due to a knee injury ahead of his third round tie against Milos Raonic.

His withdrawal follows a string of pullouts at the Rogers Cup in Toronto. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal withdrew before the tournament began.

In the women's event at Montreal, Roberta Vinci routed former champion Ana Ivanovic 6-0, 6-0.

The 28th-ranked Vinci needed only 45 minutes to eliminate 12th-ranked Ivanovic and advance to the third round of the hardcourt tournament. Ivanovic won the Rogers Cup in 2006.

Carla Suarez Navarro upset Sabine Lisicki 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, while No. 10 Marion Bartoli advanced with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Shuai Peng.
