Montreal, Wednesday, July 30, 2014—From August 4 to 8, RDS and RDS2 will together offer fans over 90 hours’ coverage of the ROGERS CUP, Canada’s number-one tennis event, live from the courts of Uniprix Stadium (Montreal) and the Rexall Centre (Toronto). 

For the women’s tournament, to be held in Montreal, all eyes will be focused on the new rising star of the tennis world, Quebec’s own Eugenie Bouchard, a finalist at this year’s Wimbledon and currently ranked seventh by the WTA. On the men’s side in Toronto, Milos Raonic, ranked seventh in the ATP’s standings, will seek to avenge his defeat in last year’s final against Spain’s Rafael Nadal.
  
Yvan Ponton and Hélène Pelletier will be on site at Uniprix Stadium to provide play-by-play and analysis of matches in the women’s bracket of the ROGERS CUP. Matches held in Toronto will be handled by François-Etienne Corbin and Marie-Ève Pelletier, a former professional player on the WTA tour. 

RDS INFO will provide special coverage of the ROGERS CUP. For the occasion of the tournament, Patrick Mahoney will host SPORTS 30 LE MAGAZINE, broadcast live from Uniprix Stadium. He will be assisted by reporters Anouk Grignon-L’Anglais and Martin Leclerc, not to mention various guests invited to talk about what’s happening at the tournament.  

Meanwhile, RDS.ca will feature a special section devoted to the ROGERS CUP. Online fans will be able to enjoy content such as a photo gallery, videos, a social media wall for the event and columns by Aleksandra Wozniak.
