Ana gets her North American hard court season underway in at the Rogers Cup in Toronto, which begins on 10 August.
Nine of the world’s top 10 players are currently entered into the tournament (only Simona Halep is scheduled to miss the event), with Ana set to be among the top eight seeds. Accordingly, she will likely receive a first round bye.
The winner of the June competition is Carl Miertschin of the USA.
He correctly gave "21" as the answer to the question, "Ana won the AEGON Classic in Birmingham last year. How many games did she lose in her five matches?"
Congratulations to him, he wins an adidas item signed by Ana.

With the season halfway complete, we take a quick reflection on Ana’s year so far:
* Ana’s win-loss record for 2015 is 18-12
* The 27-year-old has reached one final (Brisbane) and two semi-finals (Monterrey and the French Open)
* Ana has beaten one top 10-ranked player so far this season: Ekaterina Makarova at the French Open
* Caroline Garcia has been Ana’s tormentor-in-chief during 2015: the Frenchwoman has defeated Ana no fewer than three times
* Ana has already competed on four different surfaces: outdoor hard courts, indoor hard courts, clay and grass
Ana has entered the BGL BNP Paribas Open in Luxembourg, which takes place during October 19-25.
Ana won the tournament in 2007, something she alluded to in her Facebook post announcing her participation:
"It’s amazing for me to think back to the time I won the BGL BNP Paribas Luxembourg Open – it was eight years ago, back in 2007! It doesn’t seem so long ago, because I remember it very vividly.
Ana is the official celebrity supporter of StarCards and she has donated her signed Roland Garros credential badge (the "pass" that gave her access to the grounds during her run to the French Open semi-finals last month). Sales from the auction will benefit Great Ormond Steet Hospital Children's Charity.
Ana’s campaign at the Wimbledon Championships ended brutally in the second round as she lost 6-3, 6-4 to world No.158 Bethanie Mattek-Sands. The seventh seed never managed to settle on court and appeared to be hindered by some physical issues on what was the hottest day in Wimbledon’s 138-year history.
Ana clinched a routine 6-1, 6-1 victory over Yi-Fan Xu in the first round of the Championships at Wimbledon. The seventh seed dominated throughout and unleashed a phenomenal 29 winners during the 61-minute match.
Ana has become the global beauty ambassador for SHISEIDO'S WetForce suncare system. She will represent the cosmetic company's revolutionary new product, which offers an unmatched world first in sunscreen technology.
A leading figure in women’s tennis and the first brand in the world to launch UVA protection in 1986 – the partnership between Ana and SHISEIDO embodies a mutual dedication to expertise and craftsmanship.
WetForce is unique among sunscreens in that its efficacy increases when it comes into contact with sweat or water.
