The National Bank Open, formerly Rogers Cup

BMW Player List: ATP Athletes set to cruise into Montréal as the National Bank Open presented by Rogers returns

July 14, 2022
Shapovalov and Auger-Aliassime

It’s been some time, but the Canadian Open is set to return in style. The NBO player list presented by BMW includes the best of the best, that truly are in a class of their own. With the tournament set to kick off in August, a luxurious cast of tennis’ best players bring this tournament to the forefront of the national sports stage.

After a nearly three-year wait, the National Bank Open presented by Rogers makes its official return at full capacity and will once again welcome fans in Montréal to the IGA Stadium (August 5 to 14). To mark the occasion, the tournament will have the privilege of presenting exceptional draws, as the vast majority of the members of the ATP Top 50 are slated to compete!

In Montréal, the legendary Rafael Nadal, who holds the men’s all-time record of 22 Grand Slam crowns, will be in action. He has raised five winner’s trophies in Canada and is the current titleholder of the men’s event in Montréal. The Spaniard will be out to equal Ivan Lendl’s record of six Canadian Open titles set in 1989.  

Canadian tennis fans in Montréal will also be thrilled to see Félix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov back on the courts. Currently ranked No.9, Auger-Aliassime won his very first ATP title last February in Rotterdam. As for Shapovalov (No.24), he is always one to watch. In 2017, he took everyone by surprise when he defeated Nadal at IGA Stadium to reach the semifinals. Still, our Canadians will have their work cut out for them as they contend with the young guns of the world’s elite, including No.4 Stefanos Tsitsipas (23 years old), No.5 Casper Ruud (23 years old), No.6 Carlos Alcaraz (19 years old) and No.10 Jannik Sinner (20 years old).

World No.1 Daniil Medvedev reigns supreme at the top of the list. A 2019 finalist in Montréal, he will be intent on defending the Canadian title he secured last year in Toronto. 

“We are very excited to announce the Player List for the 2022 National Bank Open presented by Rogers,” affirmed Eugene Lapierre, Tournament Director of the National Bank Open in Montreal. “In addition to this fantastic draw, our tournament will finally be returning to full capacity with a sensational program for everyone, from the young to the young at heart. Personally, I’m really looking forward to it, and I am far from the only one judging by the sales that promise to be a record high. The Open will be the must-see event of the summer!”
