MATCH POINTS

Sabalenka is the top seed here. The 20-year-old is currently the World No.20, her highest ranking so far.

The Belarusian played Lepchenko for the first time earlier this year - at Indian Wells, where she won 7-5, 6-1.

Safarova and Jabeur have never played each other before; nor have Marino and Safarova.

Wildcard Marino reached the final of qualifying for the Rogers Cup last month, but lost to fifth seed Qiang Wang.

Abanda is now ranked inside the Top 200 - her current position as World No.196 is a new career high.
