National Bank Open 2021: Monday Scores, Results and Updated Canadian Open ScheduleAugust 10, 2021
The National Bank Open—formerly known as the Rogers Cup—may have been spread across both Toronto and Montreal on Monday, but the upsets and thrilling play fed off each other despite being in different provinces.
On the women's side, it was Rebecca Marino besting No. 16 seed Madison Keys in two sets (6-3, 6-3). The No. 26th-ranked women's player in the world couldn't keep up with the Toronto native, who is now sure to see her ranking jump up from No. 220 in the WTA.
