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.
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.
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.
The recently crowned Wimbledon men’s singles champion is also the defending champion of the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank.
