History

The Tournoi de Québec, last sponsored as Coupe Banque Nationale (or also known as National Bank Cup in English-language media), was a professional tennis tournament played on indoor carpet courts. The tournament was known as Challenge Bell from the first edition to 2013. It was part of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) Tour as a Tier III event from 1993 to 2008, and as an International event from 2009 to 2018. It was held in Québec City, Québec, Canada from 1993 to 2018.

In 1997, Dutchwoman Brenda Schultz-McCarthy defeated Belgian Dominique Van Roost to win her second title in Québec City (also won in 1995 and finalist in 1994), the only woman in the history of the tournament to do so. The following year, American Tara Snyder won her first WTA Tour title with a hard fought victory over fellow American and former top-10 player Chanda Rubin (Rubin was also runner-up in 1999 and won the tournament in 2000), as she saved two match points during the match. In 2006, top-seed and 2013 Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli of France defeated Russian Olga Puchkova 6–0, 6–0, the first double bagel in a WTA Tour final for 13 years. Players who have won the event and gone on to win Grand Slam titles include 1999 champion Jennifer Capriati, 2003 champion Maria Sharapova, who both went on to become World No. 1, and 2006 champion Bartoli. American Lindsay Davenport, a three-time Grand Slam champion, won the event in 2007, in only her third event after returning to the tour after giving birth to her son.
