Defending Champions


Elina Svitolina of Ukraine is the defending champion of the Women’s Singles in the Rogers Cup, while Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina of Russia are the defending doubles champions.


Favourites


Serena Williams withdrew from the tournament citing personal reasons. The 23-time Grand Slam winner made her return to competitive action just back in March this year, following the birth of her child and would have been one of the top favorites in Montreal.


While Elina Svitolina is all set to defend her title, the top seeds are World No. 1 Simona Halep of Romania and No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki. The latter was defeated in the finals of the last year’s edition by Svitolina, and the Danish star would be looking for a rematch.


Canadians Eugenie Bouchard and Carol Zhou have been handed tough draws, while Rebecca Marino is only a win away from the main qualification draw, who is also returning to competitive action after nearly five years. Similarly, 15-year old Leylah Fernandez is also a win away from the main qualification draw.
