Canadian Open 2012 Women’s Singles Draw: 1st Round

The 2012 Canadian Open women’s main draw singles 1st round matches begin on Tuesday 7 August at 12 noon local time in Montreal, Quebec in Canada. The Canadian Open in Toronto has 48 players vying for this prestigious WTA Premier FIVE title, the trophy, a maximum of 900 WTA ranking points and US$ 360,000 for the winner.

The Toronto 64-sized main draw is divided up between 16 Byes, 8 Qualifiers [Q], 3 Wild Cards [WC] and 45 Direct Acceptances. The Top 16 ranked players amongst the 45 Direct Acceptances become the seeds. The 16 seeds ranged in rankings from World No.1 Victoria AZARENKA through to No.22 Milos RAONIC.

Please leave a comment below this article regarding anything YOU would like to know about in tennis, have explained or suggest for me to write about here at OnCourt Advantage. To watch the tennis in Singapore you need to add 12 hours to the local time in Montreal to work out the equivalent Singapore time for the daily 2012 Canadian Open Order of Play.
