The first balls of the 2018 edition of Rogers Cup presented by National Bank will be put in play tomorrow! Are you as excited as we are? While we wait, let’s get to know our top seed, Simona Halep.

For the Romanian ace, this season has been extraordinary. She won her first tournament of 2018 in Shenzhen, China and played in her third Grand Slam final at the Australian Open in Melbourne. After a few unsuccessful attempts, Simona finally lifted her first major trophy at Roland-Garros in June, thrilling her fans. In Fed Cup, the 26-year-old helped Romania qualify for the World Group in 2019 with her two singles wins in the nation’s battle against Switzerland. Since January, she has reached four finals, two semifinals and two quarterfinals at ten tournaments. Will she keep the momentum going at Rogers Cup?

We’ll all find out together but there’s no doubt that Rogers Cup has been kind to Simona. Her six Canadian appearances have led her to two finals, one semifinal and one championship.
