his week officially begins the summer on the North American hard-courts, with the Rogers Cup, ATP/WTA combined event, which will be, before Cincinnati, the prelude to the upcoming US Open. In the men’s singles, sixth ATP Masters 1000 of the season, Rafael Nadal will lead the seeding.

There will also be Alexander Zverev, Dominic Thiem, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Kei Nishikori, Stan Wawrinka, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Fabio Fognini, Marin Cilic, Kevin Anderson and Milos Raonic. There will not be Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.

Juan Martin del Potro is still facing the injury. In the women’s singles (WTA Premier 5) Ashleigh Barty leads the draw. Serena Williams and Simona Halep are ready to challenge the Australian. With them, there will also be all the other stars: Naomi Osaka, Angelique Kerber, Karolina Pliskova, Johanna Konta, Elina Svitolina, Sloane Stephens, Maria Sharapova, Caroline Wozniacki and the young Amanda Anisimova, Dayana Yastremska, Aryna Sabalenka and Bianca Andreescu, who come back on the court after the injury.

These seven days will also include four ATP Challengers: the Nordic Naturals Challenger (USA on hard-courts), the Schwaben Open (Germany, on clay courts), the International Tennis Manerbio – Trofeo Dimmidisì (Italy, on clay-courts) and the Yokkaichi Challenger (Japan, on hard-courts).Rafael Nadal has returned to defend his Rogers Cup title in his first event since Wimbledon, while Serena Williams is aiming to claim a historic fourth women’s singles crown from current champion Simona Halep.

The Rogers Cup is the first major event of the 2019 hard court tennis season, as part of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) World Tour Masters 1000 and Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) Premier 5 series of events.

Both singles tournaments are start tomorrow and conclude next Sunday (August 11).

The women’s competition is taking place at the Aviva Centre in Toronto and the men’s tournament at the IGA Stadium in Montréal.

Eight of the men’s world ATP top 10 ranked players compete in Canada, with the only absentees being Switzerland’s Roger Federer and Serbia’s Novak Djokovic as they continue to recover from their epic Wimbledon final.

It leaves Spaniard Nadal as clear favourite, however, the likes of Austria’s Dominic Thiem, Germany’s Alexander Zverev and Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas should provide high quality opposition in the latter stages.

In the women’s singles, nine of the WTA top 10 are in action, including Australia’s world number one Ashleigh Barty and number four seed, Romania’s reigning champion Halep.

Williams is seeded eighth as she aims for her first Rogers Cup title since winning in 2015 at arguably the peak of her powers.

The top eight seeds in both the men’s and women’s singles get byes to the second round, meaning Nadal due to open his competition against either Alex de Minaur of Australia or a qualifier.

Barty’s competition is set to commence against either Sofia Kenin of the United States or Chinese Taipei’s Hsieh Su-wei, while Romanian Halep will play either Kristina Mladenovic of France or a qualifier.

American Williams meanwhile will be preparing to take on Elise Mertens of Belgium or Aliaksandra Sasnovich from Belarus in her second round match.

Barty, who has struggled with pain in her right shoulder, could be dethroned as world number one in Canada by either second ranked Naomi Osaka of Japan or third seeded Czech Karolína Plíšková.

Osaka must reach at least the third round to have a shot of overtaking Barty, while Plíšková needs to at least reach the semi-finals.The 18-year-old from Richmond Hill, Ont., had just burst on the scene. Canadian tennis fans couldn’t get enough.

Nadal, meanwhile, was on the cusp of once again becoming the top-ranked player in the world. He instead walked off centre court wondering what had just happened.

“A great match,” he recalled Sunday. “Honestly, I lost plenty of opportunities. He played great … he played with the right determination.”

Nadal, who would reclaim the No. 1 ranking a few weeks later, is back in Montreal after winning his fourth Rogers Cup with a victory over Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas in the 2018 tournament’s final.

“I have a good memory in terms of atmosphere,” the 33-year-old added of the abrupt end to his last appearance in Quebec some 24 month ago. “Not a good memory personally for me because I lost a match I had under control.”

Shapovalov, who has struggled recently, said Saturday he sometimes goes back to watch the tape of that night to find inspiration.

“You can play at that level, you can beat these guys,” the now-20-year-old said of reliving his victory over Nadal. “I was so fearless, so confident, going up against a beast like Rafa.”

Nadal, who beat Shapovalov handily in their only subsequent meeting on clay, again figures to be a beast at this year’s Rogers Cup.

He’s 37-6 this season with two tournament wins, including his 12th French Open, and is ranked second in the world behind Novak Djokovic and one spot ahead of Roger Federer, who are both skipping the tournament.

“I cannot be thinking if Roger or Novak are here or are not here,” Nadal said. “Tennis is more than only three players.”

With that in mind, eight of the world’s top-10 will compete at IGA Stadium, including 2017 champion and third-seeded Alexander Zverev (ranked fifth in the world) of Germany and a Canadian contingent headlined by Milos Raonic (20th) of Thornhill, Ont., Montreal’s Felix Auger-Aliassime (22nd) and Shapovalov (31st).

The women’s bracket of the Rogers Cup, meanwhile, is being played in Toronto.

Nadal said he’s been especially impressed by Auger-Aliassime, set to turn 19 on Thursday and under an intense hometown microscope. He’s already won 28 matches this season and holds a 12-4 record over his last four tournaments.

“I like his character,” Nadal, an 18-time Grand Slam winner, said. “He’s passionate about his sport.
