We're excited about Rogers Cup and wanted to share an update with users who are also tennis fans.
After an impressive win over David Goffin, Milos Raonic is gone from the 2018 Rogers Cup. He lost to America’s Frances Tiafoe, on Wednesday, in a disappointing final set.
Shapovalov seems to be embracing being the star of this annual Canadian event. In his opening match, he defeated French veteran Jeremy Chardy then came back and dealt with Italian Fabio Fognini in straight sets on Wednesday.
Tonight, you can catch Shapovalov battle it out, against Robin Haase, on centre court. Following this promising showdown, it’ll be Spain’s own, Rafael Nadal’s turn, in a match against Stan Wawrinka.
While Denis won his second round at the Rogers Cup, Daniil Medvedev defeated Montreal-born tennis player, Felix Auger-Aliassime. The kid celebrated his 18th birthday on centre court last night, where he also suffered a heartbreaking loss. Still, the fans were cheering him on vigorously and those who’d stuck around long enough to catch the end of the match started singing: “Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you…” as he walked off the court. Auger-Aliassime definitely made us Canadians proud.
Almost a year ago, the stars were aligned for Denis Shapovalov when he defeated Rafa', at the 2017 Rogers Cup. Could it happen again in the semi-finals?
At IGA Stadium, in Montreal, the ladies are also playing to win the Rogers Cup. This evening, on centre court, Maria Sharapova is facing Caroline Garcia. The match will be followed by Simona Halep who is going against Venus Williams.
