No more Canadian content on the singles side, but Gabriela Dabrowski (as usual) survived on the doubles side. Until Saturday.

The story of the week is unseeded Beatriz Haddad Maia, whose return from a doping suspension has been hot fire and who could pull off a big title Sunday if she can beat Simona Halep.
