It will be the first match for Dasha after Wimbledon and the second appearance at the Canadian Premier 5 tournament in her career.
The first opponent is an experienced Italian player Roberta Vinci. Last year both players met at the same tournament (which took place in Montreal, though) and Daria managed to beat the Italian. However, Vinci still has a 2-1 lead in the overall head-to-head statistics. Last year Dasha managed to reach the quarterfinal of the Canadian Premier where she lost to Angelique Kerber from Germany.
Dasha has already won her maiden WTA title this year (triumphing at the Premier tournament in Charleston) and she is currently No. 36 in the WTA ranking.
