Nick Kyrgios refused to be drawn on his Rogers Cup preparations, having joked that Pokemon Go took up more of his time than tennis before losing to world number 370 Denis Shapovalov. A dispirited Kyrgios appeared to stop trying in his fourth-round Wimbledon defeat to Andy Murray and, returning to the court for the first time since, things had seemingly not improved in Canada. Just a few hours before taking to court, Kyrgios tweeted "Eat, sleep, Pokemon Go", having claimed a day earlier that he was playing the mobile game sweeping the world more than he was practising tennis.
All seven Russian tennis players have been cleared to compete at the Rio Olympics, the International Tennis Federation (ITF) said on Sunday. "The seven Russian tennis players who have been nominated to compete in Rio have been subject to a rigorous anti-doping testing programme outside Russia," the ITF said in a statement. "The ITF believes that this is sufficient for the seven Russian tennis players to meet the relevant requirement of today's decision of the IOC Executive Board." The International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided on Sunday not to impose a blanket ban on Russia competing at the Rio Games, leaving decisions on the participation of athletes to individual sports federations.
