Canada's Milos Raonic is heading to the second round at the French Open, we profile some older Olympians that will represent Canada in London, and the Blue Jays got back on track in Toronto.
Here are your top five stories from Monday:
1. Milos Raonic is heading the second round of the French Open. The 21-year-old Canadian tennis sensation took down Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo of Spain in straight sets (6-4, 6-2, 6-2) to help erase the disappointment of last year's early exit at Roland Garros. Fellow Canadian Frank Dancevic (back) had to retire during his match against Martin Klizan of Slovakia.
2. For many of Canada's Olympians, age is just a number. Chris Brown of CBC's The National profiled many of this country's veteran athletes that will represent their nation in London this summer in a documentary titled "Faster, Stronger... Older" which you can watch by clicking here.
3.The puck drops on the Stanley Cup final on Wednesday night on Hockey Night In Canada (8 p.m. ET, CBC, CBCSports.ca) but the two teams are already analyzing one another. Devils coach Peter DeBoer called the Kings a "three-or-four-headed monster." One of those monsters is captain Dustin Brown, whose teammates say they're inspired by his no-talk, just action type of leadership.
4. Ryder Hesjedal is still basking in the glow of his win at the Giro d'Italia. Well, Canadians are, anyway. The 31-year-old from Victoria, B.C. chatted with CBC on Monday and said while many had him favoured to make up the 31-second difference on the last day of the race, it was no sure thing for him.
5. The Toronto Blue Jays rebounded at home after getting whooped in Texas by the Rangers over the weekend, but their 6-2 win over the Orioles wasn't without its tense moments. Homers from Edwin Encarnacion and Kelly Johnson helped Toronto to a six-run lead, but their own bullpen gave the Jays (and their fans) a scare in the ninth.
