Two-time BNP Paribas Open champion Daniela Hantuchova and American Melanie Oudin at the draw.
The All-Access Hour took place on Wednesday afternoon. Petra Kvitova was among those in attendance.
Maria Sharapova at All-Access Hour. The Russian won this Premier-level tournament back in 2006.
Angelique Kerber at All-Access Hour. Kerber made a dramatic run to the semifinals here last year.
Sara Errani at All-Access Hour. The Italian is the match win leader on the WTA this year with 18.
Agnieszka Radwanska was among those who took part in the WTA's live stream from All-Access Hour.
Radwanska wasn't finished there, either - she got a birthday cake from WTA Supervisor Donna Kelso.
Sílvia Soler-Espinosa beat Vania King in three sets in the first match of the day on Stadium 1.
Svetlana Kuznetsova was next up but only needed two sets, defeating Andrea Hlavackova, 63 61.
Kuznetsova is a two-time finalist here at Indian Wells, finishing runner-up in both 2007 and 2008.
Flavia Pennetta, who returned from left wrist surgery a few weeks ago, fell to Francesca Schiavone.
Part of Sharapova's pre-tournament engagements included an event to promote her candy, Sugarpova.
