2019 WTA Canadian Open Top Contenders
Simona Halep (6.00)
A season that was threatening to drift away after a disappointing clay court swing was given an almighty jolt when Simona Halep won her first Wimbledon title, producing a devastating display to thrash Serena Williams in the final. Halep, seeded fourth at the Canadian Open this week, is well rested having not played since Wimbledon. The lack of match practice on hard courts could be a factor, although given the dependability of her game, the Romanian has the ability to quickly adapt. Plus she is the defending and two-time champion.
Serena Williams (9.00)
Serena Williams came close to finally equalling Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles, but came up short against an inspired Halep in the Wimbledon final. Williams once again appeared to run out of steam at the back end of the tournament, and considering her overall lack of matches this season, similar could happen in Toronto if she goes deep into the tournament.
Ashleigh Barty (9.00)
Ashleigh Barty was the form player of the summer when she embarked on a 15-match winning run, claimed two titles – including her maiden Grand Slam at the French Open – and reached the No. 1 ranking for the first time in her career. Barty has not played since exiting Wimbledon in the fourth round, although she should have few problems getting up to speed on the Canadian hard courts. After all, her last appearance on a North American hard court ended with her winning the Miami Open. She has every chance of winning her fourth title of the season.
Naomi Osaka (9.00)
Naomi Osaka had a tough time of it when she scaled to the top of the WTA Tour rankings, but now back in her favoured conditions, she has the chance to reboot her season. Seeded second at the Canadian Open, Osaka’s three career titles have all come on outdoor hard courts, including the Australian Open and US Open. If she can rediscover her form, the World No. 2 can be a real threat this week.
Karolina Pliskova (11.00)
It has been a largely successful season so far for Karolina Pliskova, who despite falling short in the Grand Slams, does have three titles to her name. The Czech World No. 4 undoubtedly has the game to succeed at the Canadian Open, although she has never gone beyond the quarter-finals. Given her inconsistencies, we think she is worth avoiding this week.
2019 WTA Canadian Open Outsiders
Sloane Stephens (15.00)
Sloane Stephens endured a horrid start to the US Open series by losing in the first round of the Citi Washington Open in straight sets. However, few players can conjure form out of nowhere quite like Stephens and she has a fine recent record at the Canadian Open, reaching last year’s final and the 2017 semi-finals.
Kiki Bertens (19.00)
Kiki Bertens was the form player on the WTA Tour earlier this season, and while she has not added to her St Petersburg and Madrid Open titles, she has gone final-semi-final-final in three of her past four tournaments. The World No. 5 should be right in the mix this week in Toronto.
Aryna Sabalenka (26.00)
Aryna Sabalenka was denied her second title of the season last week when she was defeated in the Silicon Valley Classic final, but it was still a welcome return to form for the World No. 9. Sabalenka is one of the most dangerous players on the WTA Tour and if she builds on her San Jose displays, she can be a contender at the Canadian Open.
Johanna Konta (29.00)
After an 18-month spell where her form took a serious turn for the worse, Johanna Konta looks to be back playing to a similar level that made her a top-10 player. The World No. 14 has the ability and confidence to go far in Toronto.
Belinda Bencic (34.00)
Belinda Bencic endured a torrid time with injuries but appears to be close to her previous form. The Swiss World No. 12 won the Dubai title earlier this year in similar conditions and is a former champion at the Canadian Open having won the title in Toronto in 2015 on her only appearance at the tournament.

2019 WTA Canadian Open Betting Odds
An ultra-competitive field means plenty of opportunity to take advantage of longer odds, and we are backing Ashleigh Barty to take the Canadian Open title. She has been the best player of North American hard courts this year, and will be rested and focused following her break after Wimbledon. If her odds seem steep to win the title, get on the World No. 1 to reach the final at 4.50.
Value Bet: Winning Half – Top @2.25 at bet365 - 4 Units
Best Bet: Ashleigh Barty Reach Final @4.50 at bet365 - 2 Units
Winner: Ashleigh Barty @9.00 at bet365 - 1 Unit
