Yes, the food is amazing and the off-court entertainment is out of this world.

But let’s not forget the main reason why you should attend the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank the exceptionally good tennis.

So you’re not a huge tennis buff but still want to know who to keep an eye out for? Here’s a quick rundown of some of the top-ranked players that will be touching down in Toronto and Montreal this year.

Milos Raonic
Though he couldn’t quite nab the top prize at Wimbledon, Ontario’s own Milos Raonic still made history as the first Canadian man to reach a major singles championship match. We can’t wait to see what he does when he returns to home soil.

Serena Williams
Serena Williams simply dominates on the court. She transcends the sport, with many hailing her as not just one of the best tennis players in the game, but one of the greatest athletes of all time. Just getting to witness her thunderous strike of a serve in person would be a bucket list achievement for any fan.

Eugenie Bouchard
Another hometown hero, Eugenie “Genie” Bouchard will be making an appearance at the women’s tournament in Montreal. While her career has been on the rocks the past couple of years, her aggressive and unpredictable style makes her an interesting player to watch.

Novak Djokovic
Currently the world’s top-ranked men’s singles player, Djokovic is a beast on the court. Not only will fans get to see his impressive backhand shot up close, they’ll also get to experience the extremely rare occurrence of witnessing him compete in doubles.

Andy Murray
The recently crowned Wimbledon men’s singles champion is also the defending champion of the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank. While it was tough watching him beat our Milos, with the way his career has been going lately, Murray is well on his way to that number one spot. Djokovic better watch his back.
