As the tournament comes to a close, Tennis Canada announced a world record for attendance at a one-week tournament. In fact, a total of 216,097 fans were on-site throughout the tournament to attend matches between the best players in the world at Rogers Cup presented by National Bank.

“There was a tennis craze in our city in the last few weeks and it shows in our attendance numbers,” stated Eugène Lapierre, Tournament Director of Rogers Cup presented by National Bank. “There were compelling storylines throughout the tournament and the Montreal crowd once again demonstrated their love of tennis. It has been a while since we experienced such excitement for our sport.”
