Stan Wawrinka (ATP 288) will kick off his North American tour with a first round at the Masters 1000 in Montreal against Emil Ruusuvuori (ATP 46). The Vaudois will meet the Finn for the first time.
The winner of this match will be opposed in the second round to the Pole Hubert Hurkacz (ATP 11), the seeded No. 6 in a table led by Daniil Medvedev and Carlos Alcaraz. Daniil Medvedev could face Nick Kyrgios (ATP 63) from the start if the Australian beats Argentinian Sebastian Baez (ATP 31).
The Swiss against the Williams sisters
In Toronto in the women’s version of this Canada Open, Belinda Bencic and Jil Teichmann will be on time for Williams. Jil Teichmann (WTA 21) will indeed be opposed to Venus Williams and Belinda Bencic (WTA 13) could cross paths with Serena Williams. Titled in Toronto in 2015, the Saint-Galloise will open the fire against a “lucky loser” or a player from the qualifications. The visa request of Victoria Azarenka (WTA 20), who was to face the Saint-Galloise in the 1st round, was indeed rejected on Sunday by the Canadian authorities.
