Ahead of  David's first match of the North American hardcourt swing, a brief look at the rankings: He moves up 3 places this week and is now ranked inside the Top40 again, at #38.

Apart from that, yesterday was of course the last day of the Olympic tennis competition at Wimbledon, with Andy Murray overcoming Roger Federer in the final but also with Delpo winning the bronze-medal match against Novak Djokovic.
And last night, the following tweet appeared on the Twitter of David's official site, congratulating Delpo on having won the first medal for their country at the London Olympics:

Meanwhile, David is training at Toronto, getting ready for his first match that will take place on Tuesday. And for his opponent, Tommy Haas, that means he'll only have one day between the final of Washington yesterday (which he lost in three sets to Alexandr Dolgopolov) and their encounter in the first round of Toronto, tomorrow.
Here's a video of David, practicing with Charly Berlocq (filmed on Saturday).

Another clip of that practice session here.
And tomorrow: David's first match of the North American hardcourt swing.
