Montreal et Toronto (en alternance) - Canada
2021-08-09 / 2021-08-16
Another historic entry on the ATP and WTA schedules, the Canada Open is unique in that it alternates each year between Montreal and Toronto, with a different city for men and for women. The surface is hard and the date is traditionally in late August to prepare for the U.S. Open. Among women, Chris Evert and Monica Seles hold the record for singles wins in the Open Era with four each. On the men’s side, Ivan Lendl has triumphed the most often (six times). Since 2004, only the members of the “Big Four” (Nadal, Federer, Djokovic, Murray) have won this Masters 1000 tournament, except for the German Alexander Zverev in 2017 and of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in 2014. To win his title in Toronto, “Jo” had to beat four Top 10 players in a row: Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Grigor Dimitrov and Roger Federer in the final. It was a tremendous performance!
