Rogers Cup presented by National Bank is a prestigious professional tennis tournament organized by Tennis Canada. Since 1881 for the men and 1892 for the women, the best players in the world have showcased their skills on Canadian courts. Only Wimbledon and the US Open have longer histories than this major Canadian stop, which is acknowledged by the tennis world to be one of the best-run tournaments on the Tour. Classified as a Masters 1000 event on the ATP World Tour calendar, Rogers Cup presented by National Bank offers over US $3 million in prize money and attracts the biggest stars in tennis year after year.
Andy Murray is the defending champion, as he defeated world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the championship match last year to claim his third Rogers Cup trophy (he also won in 2009 and 2010). In 2014, the last time the men visited Toronto, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga ousted four Top 10 players – Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Grigor Dimitrov, and Roger Federer – en route to winning one of the biggest titles of his career.
The impressive list of past champions for this Canadian stop on the professional tennis circuit includes Djokovic, Federer, Rafael Nadal and other such legendary names as Andre Agassi, Ivan Lendl, John McEnroe, and Bjorn Borg.
