Schedule: Shapovalov, Raonic Feature Monday In Montreal; Felix/Vasek Team Up

Court Central features four Canadian-French matches

Canadians headline Day 1 of the Coupe Rogers, with Milos Raonic and Denis Shapovalov opening their singles campaigns at the ATP Masters 1000 tournament in Montreal. Raonic, the 2013 finalist, kicks off the action against Lucas Pouille — the first of four Canadian-French match-ups on Court Central. Denis Shapovalov, returning to the site of his big breakthrough in 2017, features in the evening session against Pierre-Hugues Herbert.
