SERENA WILLIAMS hit back from a set down to progress at the expense of Flavia Pennetta in the Rogers Cup and today sees a battle of two former Grand Slam champions.
Fourth seed Petra Kvitova has struggled for form this year, failing to make an impact at any of the majors, and will be looking for a confidence boost ahead of the US Open when she faces No.7 seed Victoria Azarenka.
Ex-world No.1 Azarenka is the 8-13 favourite at Coral while Kvitova is a 13-8 shot at Paddy Power and over 2.5 sets pays 7-5 at StanJames.
Beaten Wimbledon finalist Garbine Muguruza takes on Lesia Tsurenko and fellow seeds Angelique Kerber and Agnieszka Radwanska also look for smooth progress into round three.
In the men’s singles in Montreal the likes of Rafa Nadal, Stan Wawrinka and Kei Nishikori are all in action while the first-ever meeting between Gael Monfils and Gilles Muller should be worth a watch.
