ROGER FEDERER CONFIRMS ITS PARTICIPATION IN THE ROGERS CUP PRESENTED BY NATIONAL BANK

The holder of 19 Grand Chelems titles will return to Montreal for the first

 

Tennis Canada announced on Tuesday that Swiss Roger Federer had just confirmed his participation in the 2017 edition of the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank. This will be his first visit to Montreal since 2011.

 

“I’m happy to return to Montreal, especially since I have not had the chance to play there for several years,” commented Federer. “The 2017 season is very exciting and I look forward to returning to the courts playing on the ATP Tour. ”

 

En effet, 2017 est, jusqu’à présent, une année remplie de succès, grâce notamment à ses 18e et 19e titres de Grands Chelems conquis aux Internationaux d’Australie et à Wimbledon. Le Suisse, qui occupe présentement le troisième rang mondial, a également été couronné champion des tournois de Miami, d’Indian Wells et de Halle.

 

« Nous sommes évidemment très heureux de pouvoir annoncer le retour du Grand Roger Federer, » a déclaré Eugène Lapierre, directeur de la Coupe Rogers présentée par Banque Nationale. « Nous célébrons aujourd’hui, mais les célébrations se poursuivront dans les prochains jours, d’autant plus que Federer fêtera son anniversaire chez nous, le 8 août prochain. Je suis persuadé que le public montréalais lui réserve tout un accueil. »

Federer sera en quête d’une troisième couronne à la Coupe Rogers, mais d’une première à Montréal. En effet, il avait raflé les grands honneurs des éditions de 2006 et de 2004 disputées à Toronto.

La Coupe Rogers présentée par Banque Nationale est un prestigieux tournoi que possède et administre Tennis Canada et qui attire, année après année, les plus grandes vedettes du tennis professionnel. En 2017, le volet masculin sera disputé du 4 au 13 août, au Stade Uniprix, à Montréal, tandis que le volet féminin se déroulera du 5 au 13 août, au Centre Aviva, à Toronto.
