WTA Quebec City 2018 players

The 2018 edition of the Coupe Banque Nationale boasts another strong player field as it begins on Monday 10 September, although Alison van Uytvanck is not returning to defend her title.

The WTA Tour's newest sensation, Aryna Sabalenka, will be the headline act as the Belarusian looks to extend the supremely successful summer she has enjoyed. It started with her run to the Eastbourne final, but the bulk of Sabalenka's success has come on American hard courts: Four wins over top-10 players in the course of making the semifinals of Cincinnati, the fourth round of the US Open and winning her first title at the Premier-level New Haven event.

Can Sabalenka keep her brilliant summer going in Quebec City? The Belarusian will be joined by former French Open semifinalist Lucie Safarova, who was the Coupe Banque Nationale champion in 2013 and is always a dangerous player on indoor hard courts which suit her left-handed power game so well. 

Another new name on the WTA Tour this year, former college player Danielle Collins, also heads to Quebec City for the Coupe Banque Nationale as Collins aims to back up the success she had in Miami, where she made the semifinals as a qualifier, and San Jose. Mallora champion Tatjana Maria, rising stars Sachia Vickery and Sofia Kenin, and Olympic gold medalist Monica Puig are also in the field for the 2018 Coupe Banque Nationale, live from Quebec City from 10-16 September.

About WTA Quebec City

The US Open may be over and the champion of the last Grand Slam of the year may have been crowned, but there’s still plenty of tennis to be played in the season and before the WTA Tour moves on to Asia for the build-up to the season-ending champions in Singapore and Zhuhai, there’s one last tournament to be played in North America – the Coupe Banque Nationale in Quebec City.

Played on the other side of the US Open from the Premier-level and prestigious Rogers Cup in Montreal or Toronto, WTA Quebec City is a more intimate affair. An International-level event featuring a 28-player singles draw, the Coupe Banque Nationale is one of the few remaining WTA Tour events played on carpet and takes place at the 30,000-capacity Universite Laval-PEPS venue in the capital of the Canadian province of Quebec.

The Coupe Banque Nationale was first played in 1993, when third seed Nathalie Tauziat took the title – and played a small but significant role in tennis history, when future legend of the game Serena Williams played her first WTA Tour match as a professional at WTA Quebec City in 1995, losing in the first round of qualifying. Serena, then 14 years old, earned $240 and one ranking point for her 1-6, 1-6 defeat!

Over the following years, a number of well-known WTA Tour stars and future stars captured the title at the Coupe Banque Nationale, including Katerina Maleeva (1994), Jennifer Capriati (1999), Maria Sharapova (2003), Marion Bartoli (2006) and Lindsay Davenport (2007). The WTA Quebec City tournament was also honoured as the WTA’s International Tournament of the Year no fewer than eight times – a record – including every year from 1995 to 2000.

In recent years a number of WTA Tour players have shone at the Coupe Banque Nationale, which has never been won more than twice by any player. Czech stars Barbora Strycova (2011) and Lucie Safarova (2013) have claimed the title as well as Belgian’s Kirsten Flipkens (2012). In 2014, seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams made a popular return to the tournament but although she reached the final, she was defeated by Mirjana Lucic-Baroni. Lucic-Baroni, a former teenage phenomenon driven away from the sport by an abusive parent and injuries, had struggled for years to make it back to the sport and her WTA Quebec City title set a new record for the longest gap between titles on the WTA Tour – 16 years and four months, breaking the previous record held by Kimiko Date-Krumm.

Annika Beck, Oceane Dodin and Alison van Uytvanck followed Lucic-Baroni in becoming Coupe Banque Nationale champions in recent years, with 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko featuring in the 2015 final.
