"I have some nagging injuries that I need to address and I look forward to returning to the ATP World Tour as soon as possible.

"I have very fond memories of Shanghai so I will miss this amazing tournament and all my loyal Chinese fans, but I look forward to returning to China next fall."

Federer is now is scheduled to return to action at the end of October in his hometown tournament in Basel.
