Canadian teens Felix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov took on Kevin Anderson and Novak Djokovic in what was a packed doubles match on Grandstand. The youngsters fell in straight sets, but the four treated a standing-room-only crowd to a delightful afternoon doubles.
On Tuesday, three-time Slam champion and wild card recipient Stan Wawrinka meets Nick Kyrgios for a fifth time on tour, the pair having a 2-2 head-to-head leading in. It’s perhaps the most anticipated first -ound match of Rogers Cup this year.

TORONTO

Milos Raonic a amorcé son parcours en signant un gain aux dépens du 10e mondial David Goffin. Il s’agissait de son premier match depuis Wimbledon. Il se joint ainsi à son compatriote Peter Polansky, qui a atteint le deuxième tour du tournoi canadien pour la sixième fois de sa carrière.
Les jeunes Félix Auger-Aliassime et Denis Shapovalov ont croisé le fer avec Kevin Anderson et Novak Djokovic dans un Grandstand plein à craquer. Les deux adolescents se sont inclinés en deux manches, mais les quatre joueurs ont offert un magnifique spectacle de double.
Jeudi, Stan Wawrinka, détenteur de trois couronnes de Grands Chelems et récipiendaire d’un laissez-passer pour la Coupe Rogers, affrontera Nick Kyrgios pour la cinquième fois. Les deux rivaux possèdent une fiche de deux victoires l’un contre l’autre. C’est possiblement le duel de premier tour le plus attendu à Toronto.
Novak Djokovic, quadruple champion de la Coupe Rogers, sera en action en simple, mardi, alors qu’il tentera de se départir du jeune Sud-Coréen Hyeon Chung qui l’avait battu aux Internationaux d’Australie, en janvier dernier.
Shapovalov et Auger-Aliassime reviendront aussi sur le terrain mardi, mais cette fois, en simple. Shapovalov sera opposé au Français Jérémy Chardy — contre qui il avait gagné à Wimbledon — alors qu’Auger-Aliassime se mesurera à Lucas Pouille, un autre Français.
