The very best tennis players in the world are heading to Canada for the 2016 Rogers Cup presented by National Bank. This year, 60 of the Top 65 players will be hitting Canadian courts. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, the current holder of all four Grand Slams, headlines the entry list in Toronto where all of the Top 43 men’s players will be present. In Montreal, No. 1 Serena Williams will attempt to win her fourth Rogers Cup crown in a field that features 30 of the Top 35 players and nine of the Top 10.
Among the many other top athletes travelling to Canada this July are defending champions Andy Murray and Belinda Bencic, who will try and claim the titles once more. Other past winners at the tournament making a return are Roger Federer (2004, 2006), Rafael Nadal (2005, 2008, 2013), Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (2014), Agnieszka Radwanska (2014), Petra Kvitova (2012), and Caroline Wozniacki (2010).

Two Canadians have also earned their place in the main draw – Milos Raonic in Toronto and Eugenie Bouchard in Montreal. Raonic became the first Canadian to make the Rogers Cup final since 1958 when he finished runner-up in 2013, while Bouchard will be looking to advance past the second round for the first time. World No. 46 Vasek Pospisil, a former semifinalist, will also be competing in Toronto as the recipient of a wild card.
