Simona Halep is back. The Romanian, former number one and current ten in the WTA ranking, will return to compete after three months of inactivity in the circuit.
The tournament that will see her return will be the WTA 1000 in Montreal. “I have worked hard to get ready for the North American tournament series and that is why I am delighted to accept this invitation from the organizers. Also, Montreal fans always create an electric atmosphere. I was very happy to know that we will be able to count on your presence in the stands “ expressed the Romanian about her participation in the contest.
Halep, who has not competed since the WTA 1000 in Rome, was inactive with a calf injury. The European missed the Roland Garros, Wimbledon and Olympics tournaments.
In Montreal, the Romanian will look for her third trophy in the Canadian city. There he won in 2016 (against Madison Keys) and in 2018 (Sloane Stephens). This contest will also have the losses of Ashleigh Barty (1st), Angelique Kerber (21st) and Venus Williams (109th).
