Elina comes back on tour after a month's break to play at the Premier 5-level event in Canada. As the fifth seed Elina gets a bye in the first round and will play in the second against a winner of the match between Roberta Vinci (Italy) and Daria Kasatkina (Russia). 

Elina starts her third campaign in Canada. Last year she reached the third round, where she lost to Angelique Kerber, who was the World No. 2 at that time. 

This year Elina Svitolina leads WTA tour in terms of number of titles. She has won four trophies in 2017: Taipei, Dubai, Istanbul and Rome. Also for the first time in her career Elina reached No. 5 in the WTA rankings and currently is No. 5 of the WTA Porsche Race for the spot at the season-ending WTA Finals in Singapore.
