August 2023

The tennis summer continues with the American hard court swing, with some key events before the final Grand Slam of the year, the US Open. 


Novak Djokovic is choosing to skip the ATP 1000 event in Canada in order to give himself more time to recover from Wimbledon. Apart from that, Toronto has a stacked field, with Carlos Alcaraz, Daniil Medvedev, Casper Ruud, Stefanos Tsitsipas, and the rest of the top 20 scheduled to play. Defending champion Pablo Carreno Busta will not play, however, as he is still struggling with an injury that has kept him side-lined since February. Canadians Gabriel Diallo, Vasek Pospisil, Alexis Galarneau and Milos Raonic have received widcards, but Denis Shapovalov will miss his home event due to injury.

Montreal sees a whole host of female stars entered: Iga Swiatek, Aryna Sabalenka, Elena Rybakina and Jessica Pegula are all in, as well as Wimbledon champion Marketa Vondrousova. Wildcards have been given to Venus Williams, as well as Canadians Bianca Andreescu, Rebecca Marino and Leylah Fernandez. Former world number 1 Caroline Wozniacki will make her comeback here, having retired from the tour and become a mother a few years ago. Defending champion Simona Halep is still serving a suspension for testing positive for banned substances.


Novak Djokovic’s only pre-US Open event will be in Cincinnati, which begins two weeks before the Grand Slam. He will also play in the doubles with compatriot Nikola Cacic. The rest of the top 20 are also currently entered, including defending champion Borna Coric. J.J. Wolf and Stan Wawrinka have received wildcards.

Cincinnati boasts a strong WTA field, like Montreal all of the top 25 women are entered, in a field that includes four former winners: Madison Keys, Victoria Azarenka, Karolina Pliskova, and last year’s winner Caroline Garcia. Williams, Andreescu and Wozniacki have received wildcards here too, as have Peyton Stearns and Sloane Stephens.

We had a great time on Saturday

"Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time on Saturday and that it all went smoothly. I didn't realise it was better than making a booking in a restaurant, but even then we were very lucky to get a beautiful table for 6 at the Wingfield restaurant. It was the only one available! Thanks for helping me organise this nice day with the family and let's stay in touch for future years."
