The seven-time Grand Slam champion and former world number one Venus Williams will make her comeback in singles event after nearly a year at the Canadian Open, which will take place from August 6 to 15.

Williams received a wild card into the main draw at Toronto. The 42-year-old’s last singles outing was at the Chicago Open in August last year, when she crashed out in the first round. Williams’s last victory in singles event was in the first round of the 2021 Wimbledon.

The American returned to action in the mixed doubles at the Championships earlier this month, when she partnered Jamie Murray to reach the second round at Wimbledon.

“I’m so excited to be back playing the National Bank Open presented by Rogers, said Williams in a statement. “I love the city, the tournament, and I look forward to being back in Toronto.”

Venus will join her sister Serena Williams in Toronto. Serena entered the tournament using her protected ranking in the field, along with Bianca Andreescu, who has also received a wild card. The Top 10 slate will be led by the world number one Iga Swiatek.

“We are thrilled to have both Venus and Serena playing the National Bank Open presented by Rogers this year,” said Karl Hale, Toronto Tournament Director, in a statement.

“They have meant a great deal to our sport and having them at a tournament really puts a spark in everyone from the fans, tournament staff, and even the other players. They’re two of the greatest players in history and we look forward to hosting them in Toronto.”
