Fourth seed Alekandra Wozniak could be a major contender at this week's Bell Challenge, one of the few events to be played in Canada. It's also one of the only events to still be played on carpet though, so we can't necessarily rely on the formbook here.
This has been a successful year for Wozniak so far. She's climbed inside of the top fifty, amassing an encouraging 34-19 match record in the process. Sure, this statistic is padded out by a few results at ITF level and in WTA qualifiers, but it genuinely looks like the Canadian is making progress.
Wozniak's seeding hasn't spared her from a tricky first round clash in Quebec City. She'll take on Elena Vesnina, a former world No. 22 this evening. Vesnina has finished the past two seasons just outside the top fifty, so she shouldn't be ruled out.
That said, with the home advantage, and riding a wave of form, there's little reason to doubt Wozniak's status as the favourite.
