College of Sports Media Game of the Night:

What’s great way to draw attention to a major sporting event? The Roger’s Cup has decided to channel some energy from an old Nike ad featuring Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi (check out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KniY8jx-LI8&feature=related, for a hint).  They’re flying in two of the top women’s tennis players in the world by helicopter and playing an abbreviated match smack dap in the middle of the city’s busiest intersection at Yonge and Dundas. To top it off they’re doing it in the middle of the day – high noon.

Today marks the official opening of the Rogers Cup at the Rexall Centre located on the grounds of York University. This year’s tournament has attracted the top women tennis players in the world including all the top ten women in the world. The qualifiers are out of the way and things will be underway at 11 am today. Canadian Heidi El Tabakh qualified for tournament play, making her the second Canuck to do so since the turn of the century. El Tabakh plays today against Australia’s Samantha Stosur. Another homegrown talent, Stephanie Dubois, battles Italian Roberta Vinci.

The match of the day is the last one of the day, featuring former number one Maria Sharapova taking on 10th seed and fellow Russian Nadia Petrova. Sharapova saw limited action last season, dealing with lingering shoulder injuries. This season she’s healthy and looking to add more hardware to her already full trophy case which includes US Open, Australian Open and Wimbledon wins. Over her career Sharapova has dominated Petrova. She has a 7-1 record against Petrova including two wins this year.
