July 17, 2013 â€“This year’s Rogers Cup tennis tournament in MontrÃ©al, presented by National Bank, welcomes back the best boys of summer from August 2 to 11 at the Uniprix Stadium. The Top 40 men of the ATP World Tour are all scheduled to play during a week that promises to be historic.
Classified as a Masters 1000 event on the ATP World Tour Schedule, the Rogers Cup is considered by the tennis world to be one of the best-run tournaments on the Tour, ranking only third in age behind Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. And what legends it has seen grace its courts over the years: Rod Laver, Bjorn Borg, Ivan Lendl, John McEnroe, Andre Agassi, and two-time defending champion Andy Murray have all thrilled MontrÃ©al crowds with their incredible athletic endurance and prowess.
New for this year is a one-of-a-kind culinary experience. Throughout the tournament, fans on-site can enjoy a healthy lunch box created by celebrity chef, Laurent Godbout.
So now the ball is in your court. Come cheer on your favourite athleteâ€”like Canadaâ€™s own Milos Raonic or the number one ranked Novak Djokovicâ€”and experience the thrill of watching the masters of men’s tennis in an electric atmosphere offering several special activities, ceremonies, and presentations.
