It’s the last day in Montreal and Toronto and the excitement is at its highest. Who’s gonna take the big trophy home? On both the men and women side it’s gonna be a battle between the old, well established veterans Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal against the upcoming only 19-year old Bianca Andreescu and 23-year old Daniil Medvedev.
While the last day of Rogers Cup has come, it’s also the start of a new tournament which will take place in Cincinnati and the tournament played for both men as well as women. Look under the menu “livescore” for schedule. Now back to what is important today..
Will the new generation beat the old legends? That’s the big question for today matches. Both Medvedev and Andreescu has the potential to become a grand slam champion in the future, but it’s hard when you’re up against some who has 18 and 23 respectively.
In her only second tournament back after an injury which kept her out for 2 month and then again 2,5 month after French open she has already made it to the final, Bianca Andreescu, emphasize that she is in it for the long run, after her breakthrough winning Indian Wells earlier this year. But on the other side of the net Serena Williams must be so eager to get that first trophy after becoming a mother, after her defeat in three grand slam finals this past year – can she loosing up and forget how bad the three finals have been for her? It’s gonna be an amazing match that is for sure!
On the mens side Rafael Nadal had an walk-over to the final after Gaël Monfils had to pull out after he’s long quarterfinal match against Bautista-agut. Can he stand the pressure and become back-to-back champion again winning his 83th title? Daniil Medvedev is in his second straight final after loosing the past, he must really want the trophy this week both as he can reach a career high of no. 7, but also to be winning his tittle no. 5 and second this year. The two players have never met before and it’s gonna be really interesting to see if Medvedev can play his best and give us a dream match!
I know for sure it’s gonna be worth watching tonights matches
