Best Bets Rogers Cup 2018. Since 1881, the best players in the world have showcased their skills on Canadian courts. Only Wimbledon and the US Open have longer histories than this important Masters 1000 Tour event. Every year, Montreal and Toronto share the task of hosting, in alternation, the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank. Last years champion Alexander Zverev is back to try and defend his title.

Recent Wimbledon Champion Novak Djokovic is seeded number nine.
Best Bets Rogers Cup
1. RAFAEL NADAL – the world number one has won the Rogers Cup on 3 different occassions, last year he lost in the round of 16 to Canadian NextGen Denis Shapovalov in a third set tiebreaker. This year Nadal comes into the Rogers Cup with a 35-3 win/loss record on the ATP World Tour (l to Cilic in Melbourne, Thiem in Madrid and Djokovic in Wimbledon) and feels like the best bet to win the trophy. However – Nadal has potentially a big challenge in his second match where we might collide with Australian Nick Kyrgios. That could be a defeat for Nadal.
2. NOVAK DJOKOVIC – the 13-time Grand Slam champion is the 9th seed in this years Rogers Cup. As Nadal he has won 3 times in Canada and is looking for a fourth win this year. After his Runner Up in Queens and sensational win at Wimbledon in July where he defeated Nadal in an epic semi final clash, Djokovic is my second pick for this title.The Serb is back at his very best after two years of struggling with his mental attitude, personal problems and injuries.
3. ALEXANDER ZVEREV – the young german seems to be destined to becoming world number one when the amazing all time greats Federer – Nadal – Djokovic finally gets to old. As the defending champion and world number 3 he looks like a good bet to win the title again. Last year Zverev won the final in straight sets against Roger Federer.
