So much happened at Rogers Cup last week – especially for Canadians. Didn’t have your finger on the pulse of Canada’s biggest tennis tournament last week? Well, we can forgive you. Here’s what you may have missed in the world of social media.
FYI… Bianca Andreescu became the first Canadian to win Rogers Cup in 50 years. When the dust settled a bit, she took time to reflect on the amazing accomplishment.
A sad moment came in the second round of Rogers Cup in Montreal. Milos Raonic had to retire midway through his match against countryman Félix Auger-Aliassime due to back issues.
He thanked Montreal and fans for a great tournament afterwards.
At just 16 years old, Leylah Annie Fernandez played a singles match on Toronto’s centre court and teamed up with Wimbledon champion Simona Halep in doubles at Rogers Cup.
Even though she didn’t have the best results, her mindset remains positive.
Sticking with Canadian content, Ottawa native Gaby Dabrowski thanked Rogers Cup and the fans for a great week in Toronto.

Thanks @rogerscup for organizing yet another superb event. And thank you to all the 🇨🇦 fans who came to support all of us. #rogerscup #womeninsport #canadiansummer #toronto #teamwork #tennis • PS: Swipe to the end to see what I thought of our semi-final performance. 😒😞 #sorry
2015 Rogers Cup champion Belinda Bencic enjoyed many sights and sounds of the city during her stay in Toronto, one being the CN Tower (obviously).
Who’s excited for the Laver Cup – especially with these two captains?
Side note… Canadians Raonic and Denis Shapovalov will be competing on Team World.

After 18 years on tour and five Grand Slam titles, Maria Sharapova still enjoys the fight that tennis offers.
Is Andrey Rublev the next karate kid?
He’s doing something right since he beat Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka and Nickoloz Basilashvili at the Western & Southern Open this week.
