After knowing the draw of the men’s tournament in Toronto, it was the girls’ turn. From next Monday, August 9, the WTA in Montreal will be played in which the Spanish will participate Garbiñe Muguruza, Paula Badosa and Sara Sorribes.
Garbiñe, who starts as seed, awaits a rival in the second round. His first confrontation will be against the winner of the match between Jelena Ostapenko and Katerina Siniakova. In case of passing, in the second round we could experience the first confrontation between Spanish. For it, Sara Sorribes should beat Canadian Carol Zhao and his opponent in the second round of the tournament.
So much Barty as Naomi Osaka, numbers 1 and 2 of the WTA ranking respectively, will not be present in Montreal, hence Sabalenka, Andreescu, Svitolina or Pliskova, start as favorites.

Paula Badosa debuts against Golubic
The young Spanish tennis player also meets her first rival: the Swiss Viktorija Golubic, number 49 of the ATP ranking. Badosa, who had to withdraw from the Tokyo Games due to heatstroke, returns to the slopes in this way.
Both Badosa, Garbiñe and Sorribes will advance on the same side of the table, so in the best of cases, we could experience a Spanish semi-final. The tournament will be played on a hard court.
