Tennis Canada’s premier tournament invites racketeers from around the world to whip up cross-court flurries with $2 million in prize money on the line. Since 1892, the tournament’s taut nets have ensnared some of the brightest stars in the women’s game, from Venus and Serena Williams to 2009’s winner and Olympic Gold medalist Elena Dementieva. The tournament—hosted in alternating years by Toronto and Montreal—returns to Toronto with a caravan of players featuring past champion Kim Clijsters and followed by 576 confused members of France’s Third Estate. Join the crowd of 10,300 spectators that surrounds the Rexall Centre’s main court while anxiously waiting for the action to heat up.
In addition to the Centre Court matches, the venue also hosts the Rogers Cup Hall of Fame, practice courts where fans can watch their favorite players up close, and a retail village awash with the light of neon-green balls. Acknowledged by the tennis world for its extensive history and seamless scheduling, the Rogers Cup gives Canada’s up-and-comers a home-court advantage in the quest toward stardom.
