Venus won’t be competing in the Canadian city for the first time since 2019, but it’s likely that she’ll use it as a warm-up for her first US Open since 2020.

“I’m so excited to be back playing the National Bank Open,” said Williams.

“I love the city, the tournament, and I look forward to being back in Toronto.”
