Ajla Tomljanovic could face her who has had a sterling week in Birmingham. She takes on Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the first round.
Second seed is Jessica Pegula who is still playing in Berlin. She could take on Emma Raducanu in the second round who faces Sloane Stephens to start. Daria Kasatkina is in the same section. As is Jasmine Paolini making her return after reaching the Roland Garros final. She faces either Elise Mertens or Lily Miyazaki.
