Pop quiz: where does the tennis term “love” as in “15-love” come from? Well, like the Rogers Cup, which returns to Toronto and Montreal again this year, it’s the perfect mix of English and French. Apparently, the term “love” comes from the French word “l’oeuf” or “egg”, shaped like the number zero.
Once again this year, tennis fans can catch all the rallies and powerful serves at the Rogers Cup men’s tournament hosted at Toronto’s Rexall Centre from August 4th to 12th, and women’s tournament at Montreal’s Uniprix Stadium from August 4th to 13th.
You can’t make a match? No worries, you don’t have to miss a second of Milos’ powerful serve or Sharapova’s blistering return. Just follow the action on courts in both Toronto and Montreal on your TV, smartphone and computer:
