Milos Raonic and Novak Djokovic weren’t the only ones walking off Centre Court winners on Thursday night. At Rogers Cup presented by National Bank, lucky attendee Kevin Alexander was handed a racquet and hit the very same court as the stars.
Alexander geared up to Serve for a Million, the marquee event on National Bank Day, which also included a handy fan giveaway for all guests at the entrance gates. Stationed on the service line, he could serve the ball any way he liked – so long as it landed over the net. The opposite side of the court was covered in square tiles, all of which had an envelope containing a different prize taped underneath, including a grand prize of one million dollars!
Alexander hit two balls before nailing the $1,000 prize courtesy of National Bank. Though he didn’t hit the million, it was still an ace of a serve!
