The SportChek Face-Off will return to Canada in November with a new roster of superstar tennis players. Joining Canada’s No. 1 singles player Milos Raonic will be former world No. 1 Andy Roddick, who recently retired from tournament play at the US Open, 15-time Grand Slam champion and recent US Open titlist Serena Williams and current world No. 4 and 2012 Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanksa. The Sport Chek Face-Off will be held in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre on November 16 at 7 p.m.

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to play this unique event again this year,” said Raonic. “Other than at Rogers Cup once a year and the occasional Davis Cup tie in Canada, I don’t get to play in front of the home crowd very often. This event gives me the chance to play in front of my Toronto fans, friends and family while showcasing some of the all-time great players like Pete Sampras last year and now Andy and Serena. It’s going to be great to give Toronto fans another chance to see world-class tennis again this year.”

“Milos, in a very short period of time, is already one of the big names in tennis,” said Roddick. “This event is a great showcase for him and for tennis and I’m really looking forward to being part of it. I always loved coming to Toronto throughout my career and I missed the chance this summer due to injury before I retired. It will be great to get back there in November for the chance to thank all the fans who supported me over the years.”

In addition to the marquee match-up between two of tennis’ biggest hitters, Raonic and Roddick, the evening will feature a re-match of this year’s Wimbledon final between Williams and Radwanska. The foursome will also pair up for a mixed doubles match, as well as with some special celebrity guests who will join in on the action.

“Milos reminds me so much of Andy and what he did for American tennis when he burst onto the tennis scene with such a huge serve and powerful game,” said Williams. “I am really excited to play in this event with him, Andy and Aga and help support the huge growth of tennis in Canada.” “It is really an honor for me to play with Andy, Milos and Serena in this event,” said Radwanska. “It was a dream come true playing in the Wimbledon finals against Serena and I am so glad I get a chance to play her again in Toronto.”

The Sport Chek Face-Off will be a time for Radwanska and Raonic to seek revenge, as she lost a close three-set match to Williams in the final of Wimbledon this year. Raonic and Roddick only met once on the ATP tour, with Roddick edging Raonic in a dramatic final in Memphis with a diving passing shot on match point to win 7-5 in the third set. With Roddick having a very emotional retirement at the US Open this year and Raonic just reaching a career high world ranking of No. 14, the match will be sure to bring a lot of excitement and competitiveness to Toronto!

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I am now diabetic per my recent lab results. My question is, is it safe to take phentaslim along with other prescription meds such as simvastatin (cholesterol lowering drug) and evista. I don’t want to go back to the clinic coz it’s kind of far from where I live.

    I just ordered 2 bottles. I have wasted a LOT of money in the past on false hopes. I’m 35 and my job requires me to workout a minimum of 3 times a week. 2-3 mile runs and calisthenics. After my bAby almost e years ago. I lost 25 pounds over the first year then bottom out. It’s quite frustrating.I try and work out at least 4-5 times a week total and I go up and down like 5 pounds all the time (last 2 years) I eat fairly well (not a food nazi,but not a junk food junkie either) I hope this product helps me get down 10-15 lbs. I’m 5’4and around 160lbs. I was 185 months after my kid till I gotta serious. But I would like to get down to 145 again. Running and pulling all this weight hurts the joints. I will try and keep.updated. I read all the comments and my biggest disappointment is people who say they will follow up, do once but never again. If this helps I will take before and after pics and send to the acts company and try to update every couple weeks. Best regards in everyone’s weight loss journey
