Who is playing the Canada Masters in Toronto in 2018?


The cream of the ATP World Tour return to Toronto in 2018 for the Canada Masters, which is played in Toronto and Montreal in alternate years. This year, it’s the turn of the Aviva Centre in Toronto to host the best in men’s tennis for one of the biggest events of the US Open Series, the Masters 1000 event known as the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank.

The first of back-to-back Masters 1000 Series events which constitute key battlegrounds in the run-up to the US Open, as well as being significant prizes in themselves in terms of ranking points, money and prestige, the Rogers Cup has been the almost exclusive property of the 'Big Four' over the past decade - only two men outside the leading quartet of men's tennis has captured the title in Toronto or Montreal since 2003.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was the first man to break the ‘Big Four’ stranglehold in 2014 when he conquered four top 10 players on his stunning run to the title, while rising star Alexander Zverev took advantage of a depleted field to capture his second ATP Masters 1000 title of 2017 in Montreal.

Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka were just some of the world’s best players to miss last year’s Canada Masters in Montreal through injury, with all three shutting down their respective seasons after Wimbledon. As a result, most of the remaining tournaments were wide open - but unlike most, it wasn’t Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal who emerged triumphant.

Current World No. 1 Nadal was the victim of one of the biggest upsets of 2017 when he was bundled out in the third round by Canadian teenage sensation Denis Shapovalov. The 18-year-old Shapovalov created one of the most memorable moments of the season when he toppled the top seed in a third set tiebreaker, with the Canadian riding his momentum all the way to his first ATP Masters 1000 semi-final.

But it was eventual champion and more established young gun Zverev who ended Shapovalov’s run in the final four, winning in straight sets, before the German saved his best tennis for last as he defeated Federer 6-3 6-4 to claim his second Masters 1000 crown of the year.

Barring injury problems, Djokovic, Murray and Wawrinka should all be back to contend the 2018 Canada Masters in Toronto, alongside local hope Milos Raonic and former runner-up Kei Nishikori - two more players who ended their 2017 seasons prematurely due to injury.

About the Canada Masters


The Canada Masters, also known as the Rogers Cup (or Coupe Rogers), is the fifth Masters 1000 Series event of the year and marks the beginning of the run-up to the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year, the US Open.

The Rogers Cup, formerly known as the Canadian Open, can trace its history back to 1881 when the men’s event was held at the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club. Of extant tennis events, only Wimbledon and the US Open have a longer history.

Played on clay until 1979, when it switched permanently to hard courts, the Rogers Cup used to be a combined men’s and women’s event with both genders playing at the National Tennis Centre in Toronto, before the event began alternating between the cities of Montreal and Toronto in 1981. Ivan Lendl holds the record for the most titles (six) and most consecutive titles (three, 1987-89), while Rod Laver, Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Andre Agassi  and Andy Roddick are among the greats who have triumphed at the Canada Masters. 

From Roger Federer’s first victory at the Rogers Cup in 2004, the ATP World Tour’s ‘Big Four’ established a nine-year hegemony over the Canada Masters with  Federer (2004, 2006), Rafael Nadal (2005, 2008, 2013), Andy Murray (2009-10) and Novak Djokovic (2007, 2011-12) taking every title. But the ebullient French player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga hit a rich vein of form with his powerhouse tennis in 2014, beating four top-10 players – Grigor Dimitrov, Murray, Federer and Djokovic – to claim his first title in Toronto. 

The 'Big Four' reclaimed Toronto in 2015, however, with Murray avenging his 2014 defeat to Tsonga in the quarterfinals and going on to beat Novak Djokovic in the final - his first victory over Djokovic since the 2013 Wimbledon final - to claim a third Rogers Cup title. Djokovic got his revenge the next year when he beat Kei Nishikori in the final to win his fourth Canada Masters title. But the ‘Big Four’ stranglehold was broken once more in 2017 - partly due to two of them, Djokovic and Murray, absent due to injury - with boom youngster Alexander Zverev beating Roger Federer to secure the second Masters 1000 title of his career.

Now one of nine Masters 1000 Series events, and the third of four played on outdoor hard courts in the USA, the Rogers Cup signals the return to action of the top players after Wimbledon and the beginning of the warm-up to the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year, which begins in New York at the end of August. It is also the joint-biggest event in the US Open Series, the sequence of tournaments played on US hard-courts throughout August which offer the chance for the player who accumulates the most points through the Series to compete for an additional $1 million in prize money at the US Open.
