This week, Canada is host to the Rogers Cup – the world’s third most prestigious ATP tournament. The class and refinement of tennis go hand in hand with some of the most expensive estates in the Greater Toronto Area. Tennis courts are staples of financial success and social grace, reflecting these qualities on any home that has them.
