The ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event, which is now known as the Rogers Cup is a tournament which switches between venues each year. So it is a little unique there, being hosted across two venues. The Canadian Masters tournament is shared between Toronto and Montreal and it is part of the Emirates US Open Series, a run of tournaments which builds up towards the US Open Grand Slam.
So there is a lot of prestige around the Canadian Masters, which is also just known as ATP Toronto or ATP Montreal, and the Canadian tournament has been around since 1881 so has a pretty rich history. It is one of the eight ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events on the calendar year and it is played in August.
Some big names have landed this title before, everyone from the elite of the men’s game like Ivan Lendl, John McEnroe, And Again and Bjorn Borg, to the likes of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Again, it is a tournament which is steeped in massive history and in its current guise, the hard court tournament (in both locations) has taken a place of precedence late into the season, simply because it is a high profile even used as a build up to the US Open.
Spaniard Rafael Nadal won the tournament for the third time in his career in 2013, crushing the dreams and hopes of young home grown Canadian talent Milos Raonic. Raonic became the first Canadian to reach the final since 1958. Being an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event and therefore second only in precedence to the Slams, the Canadian tournament has largely been dominated by the best players in the world.
Serbian Novak Djokovic, like Nadal, has won the even three times during his career, first landing the win in 2007 and then running up back to back wins in 2011 and 2012. He was stopped in the semi finals by Rafael Nadal in 2013, just as he was eying up a shot at winning the title three times in a row, a feat last achieved by Ivan Lendl in the late 1980’s. Roger Federer lifted the title for the first time in 2004 and in the nine editions since then, the winner has either been Nadal, Djokovic, Federer or Andy Murray. Britain’s Andy Murray won it in back to back years in 2009 and 2010.
This is an important tournament held at the Stade Uniprix in Montreal and the Rexall Centre in Toronto, simply because of the proximity to the US Open. Out of the nine current ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events, none of them have been around longer than the Canada Masters has. The prize money at the event stands at around $3,000,000 and the draw is a 56-man field. In each of the last three editions between 2011 and 2013, the winner of the Rogers Cup had gone on to reach the final of the US Open later in the season.
