Recap of the Rogers Cup - Montreal/Toronto

Hey everyone, been away a while but decided to get back and give you guys an update in the tennis world. As you all know the US Open is only a few weeks away and I'm pretty excited about it. It would be cool to see Djokovic win and continue his amazing record of 50 something and one. But honestly I'm tired of him winning. I'd like to see Rafa win it.

Anyway this past week I watched quite a bit of the Rogers Open up in Canada. The women played in Toronto and the men in Montreal. I liked seeing Serena win her first tourney back from her injury.

I watched a good amount of the men's side and was really impressed with Mardy Fish. He is playing the best tennis of his life which is odd given he is almost 30. He defeated guys like Feliciano Lopez, Ernest Gulbis, Stan Wawrinka and Tipsarevic only to lose to Novak in the final 2-6, 6-3, 4-6.

Mardy lost in the final of the Farmers tourney in Los Angeles a week or so ago to Ernest Gulbis but the week before that won the Atlanta Tennis Championships.

Anyway there were quite a few upsets in this tourney with Andy Murray, Rafa and Federer all losing early. Murray lost His opening match to the American, Kevin Anderson 3-6, 1-6. Rafa Lost his opening match as well. Losing 6-1, 6-7(5-7), 6-7(5-7) to Ivan Dodig. Federer won his first match but lost his second 6-7(3-7), 6-4, 1-6 to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
