The US Open Tennis Series moved north of the border this last week, with the men’s ATP Masters 1000 tourney in Montreal, and its sister WTA women’s event in Toronto (fact: men and women switch between Toronto and Montreal each year).
Nadal cruised through his half of the draw and met the Russian up-and-comer Medvedev, who was no match for the veteran who cruised through making the best of 3 sets look like a warm-up match.
Bigger news in the women’s draw where native Canadian Bianca Andreescu played to her potential, making it to the finals, and outlasting Serena Williams who retired mid-match due to injury. If anyone hasn’t seen Andreescu play, she can be true lightning in a bottle. I had the opportunity to see her play and win her first Masters out in Indian Wells this past March.

But in even bigger news? We’re just about 30 days out from our charity tennis tournament on the lush grass courts in Chestnut Hill, MA. It’s our lucky 13th year, and would love to see both old and new players come out to play Davis Cup style, investors vs. operators, capped off with cocktails on the veranda, trophy presentation, and dinner.
The tournament has contributed to Tenacity all dozen years we’ve run it. For more on Tenacity—a dynamic program enriching at-risk urban youth in academics and “tenacity” using tennis as a fulcrum—see www.tenacity.org.
