Canadian stars to be honoured semifinal Saturday of Rogers Cup presented by National Bank Tennis Canada and Rogers Communications Inc. announced Thursday that Canadian tennis greats Grant Connell and Glenn Michibata have been named the 2010 inductees into the Rogers Cup Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony will take place Saturday, August 14, 2010 at Rexall Centre in Toronto. Connell and Michibata will also be on site for autograph sessions and promotional events.

"Canadians are renown for their doubles tennis and so it is fitting that Glenn and Grant be inducted into the Rogers Cup Hall of Fame," said Peter King, Senior Director, Sponsorship and Events, Rogers Communications Inc. "For several years, the tandem was among the best in tennis. Champions both on and off the court, these two men deserve to be enshrined among the game's greats."

One of Canada's best doubles teams on record, Connell and Michibata competed together from 1988-92, winning four doubles titles together (Livingston, Washington, Seoul and Singapore). During their five-year partnership on the ATP World Tour, they were finalists in 12 events, including the Australian Open and Rogers Cup in 1991. The duo defeated John McEnroe and Mark Woodforde at the 1990 Rogers Cup quarter-final in three sets. As a team, Connell and Michibata reached a career-best No. 4 in the world rankings in 1991 and were named Tennis Canada Doubles Team of the Year in 1987. After Michibata retired from the game, Connell went on to become the No. 1 ranked doubles player in the world in 1993 and 1994. Connell also served as tournament director of Rogers Cup in Toronto during the 2006 event.

"The tandem of Connell and Michibata are synonymous with excellence in Canadian sport circles," said tournament director Karl Hale. "These two champions blazed the path for the next generation of great Canadian doubles players such as Sebastien Lareau and Daniel Nestor. I join the rest of the Canadian tennis community in congratulating them on this worthy distinction and look forward to celebrating their accomplishments during Rogers Cup presented by National Bank."

In 2006, Rogers created the Rogers Cup Hall of Fame in celebration of the 125th anniversary of the tournament. Inductees include Carling Bassett-Seguso (2007), Boris Becker (2008), Bob Bédard (2006), Roy Emerson (2006), Ivan Lendl (2006), Sebastien Lareau (2007), John McEnroe (2007), Martina Navratilova (2006), Monica Seles (2009) and all past Rogers Cup Montreal tournament directors (2009).
