The WTA Draw has been confirmed ahead of National Bank Open Toronto which will take place between Aug 8 - 14, 2022 and runs parallel with the men's tournament which is held in Montreal.
Iga Swiatek as World Number One is top seed and faces either Veronika Kudermetova or Shelby Rogers in the opening round. Leylah Fernandez makes her long awaited return to action and will face a qualifier and then potentially Beatriz Haddad Maia or Martina Trevisan, two stars of the grass and clay court season respectively.

Serena Williams could face Victoria Azarenka in a former rivalry renewed if she can get past a qualifier and the latter faces Belinda Bencic. Albeit the Belarusian is currently playing in the sweltering heat in Washington so may not be at her best.
Bianca Andreescu returns home after her famous run in 2019 where she beat Serena Williams in the final and then won the US Open. But faces Daria Kasatkina in her opener.
