The Rogers Cup

The Canadian Open, also known as the Rogers Cup for long-time sponsor Rogers Communications, is the third-oldest tennis tournament in the world, founded after Wimbledon and the US Open in 1881. 

The Rogers Cup got its start at the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club, while today, it takes place at the Aviva Centre’s hard courts after almost a century on clay. That means the Rogers Cup is an excellent chance to see tennis players warm up for the hardcourt US Open, whereas in decades past, it was a good preview of how athletes were getting ready for the French Open, which is also on clay. 

Depending on which players you’re hoping to see in action, be careful to check who is playing where. Toronto shares its Rogers Cup hosting duties with Montreal — for example, in 2022, the women’s tournament will be held in the 6ix and the men’s in The City of a Hundred Steeples. The genders swap cities every other year.
