Top Seeds

[1] Simona Halep

Like many of the world’s elite, this week is Halep’s first outing after an early exit in Wimbledon, following her Roland Garros triumph. So grass might not be the most natural surface for the first-time Slam winner, but many feel that now she has gotten over the hump of grabbing her first Slam title, more will follow – most likely on the hard courts.

Halep’s Path to the Final (Ranking/Seeding)

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova
  • R3: Venus Williams [13]
  • QF: Caroline Garcia [6]
  • SF: Angelique Kerber [4]
  • F: Caroline Wozniacki [2]

 

[2] Caroline Wozniacki

On the subject of first time Slam winners, hopes that Wozniacki might have had that awkward questions would stop now that the former ‘slamless No.1’ had started the year with the Australian Open were stifled when the next pattern of questions focussed on how she had never got past the fourth round of Wimbledon.

Her second round exit at SW19 did nothing to ease that burden, and she comes into Montreal ready for some form on the hard courts.

Wozniacki’s Path to the Final (Ranking/Seeding)

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Aryna Sabalenka
  • R3: Elise Mertens [11]
  • QF: Elina Svitolina [5]
  • SF: Sloane Stephens [3]
  • F: Simona Halep

If the previous few years have shown us anything with the newly crowned Slam champions, the period of warm-up events ahead of a first major defence is a true test of will for many players. Now the ground-swell of questions will pick up for Stephens as she prepares to defend her US Open title.

However her run to the Roland garros final, and in fact leading Halep a set and a break before registering her first loss in seven finals proved this was not a one trick pony.

Stephens’ Path to the Final (Ranking/Seeding)

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Kirsten Flipkens
  • R3: Naomi Osaka [16]
  • QF: Garbiñe Muguruza [7]
