What is the Canadian Open?

The Canadian Open is one of the oldest and most prestigious tournaments on the WTA Tour. The women’s competition began in her 1892 and has been held regularly ever since.

Over the years, the tournament has undergone many name changes. It began as the Canadian Championship before being renamed the Canadian Open in 1968. The tournament was known as the Du Maurier Open from 1997-2000 and was renamed the Canada Masters from 2001-2004.

It was called the Rogers Cup from 2005 to 2019, but its name was changed to the National Bank Open.

The Canadian Open has been held almost every year since its opening days, and only 2020 was not held due to the influence of the new coronavirus.

Lois Moyes Bickle is the most successful player in the history of the competition, winning 10 times. Monica Seles and Chris Evert have the most wins in the Open Era, each with his four wins.

Other celebrities who have won the tournament include Steffi Graf, Serena Williams and Martina Navratilova. Camila Giorgi is her 2021 women’s singles champion, and she beat Karolina Pliskova in the final, where she went 6-3, 7-5.
