Grigor Dimitrov vs Jo-Wilfried Tsonga Rogers Cup: Live Stream, TV Channel, Time for Tennis Match

Grigor Dimitrov will take on surging Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the Rogers Cup semifinals in Toronto on Saturday, August 9.

The men are slated to start playing at 3 p.m. EDT.

The game will be broadcast on ESPN3 in the United States and CBC in Canada; channels for Bulgaria and France are unclear.

Live streaming will be available through Watch ESPN, CBC, and ATP TennisTV.

Dimitrov, ranked No. 7 in the tournament and No. 8 in the world, beat South African Kevin Anderson in the quarterfinals,  5-7, 7-5, 7-6. Anderson was unranked in the tournament and is ranked No. 21 in the world.

Tsonga, ranked No. 13 in the tournament and No. 15 in the world, is on a tear in the tournament after taking out No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the third round and No. 8 Andy Murray in the quarterfinals, 7-6, 4-6, 6-4.

Dimitrov and Tsonga have only met three times before–all in 2011–with Tsonga winning all three matches. The first and third were finished in two sets but the second, at Wimbledon that year, went to four sets, and was hard-fought.

Tsonga believes his momentum may continue.

“I don’t have a lot of confidence behind me,” he said after finishing off Murray. “I try to be consistent in my work, and I’m sure it will give me some rewards. This week is kind of rewards for me, you know, to play like this, to beat two guys in the top 10. It’s good, and I hope it will continue.”

Murray had reached the quarterfinals by walkover when Richard Gasquet withdrew.

“I thought it was a high-level match with a few games by both of us in the second and third sets that were a bit scrappy,” Murray said.
