This is the second time I've heard/read that Mirka's due date is the first week in August.
MONTREAL -- Organizers of the Rogers Cup are hopeful Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will be able to play next month.
Nadal's chances of appearing at the Aug. 8-16 event in Montreal are good despite the knee injury that prevented the Spaniard from playing Wimbledon, tournament director Eugene Lapierre said at a news conference Wednesday.
Lapierre said he received word from Nadal's team this week that the defending champion will be ready.
Federer's wife, Mirka, is supposed to give birth just as the tournament gets going, and the Wimbledon champion hasn't indicated yet whether he will be at the event.
Players who are scheduled to play include Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and Andy Roddick.
