Leylah Fernandez returned from a prolonged injury absence at last week's National Bank Open in Toronto.
And while the 19-year-old was ousted in the second round in her homeland, Canadian fans were still appreciative to see the phenom back on the court for the first time since the French Open back in May.
Now, less than a week after her return to the WTA Tour, Fernandez is back for another tournament. This time it's the Western & Southern Open, also known as the Cincinnati Masters, which serves as the final preparation for the U.S. Open.
World No.14 Fernandez will be presented with a stiff challenges no matter how long her stay in Cincinnati goes on for, first facing 27th-ranked Ekaterina Alexandrova on Monday. The duo have met once previously, in Adelaide earlier this year, with Fernandez winning in straight sets.
