Former US Open semifinalist Peng Shuai, second on Center Court against Spain's Paula Badosa, is the owner of two titles in Nanchang.
She won the event in 2014 when it was a part of the WTA 125 Series, and later won her second proper WTA title at the event in 2017. She is 10-0 in her career in Nanchang.
The top two seeds in Nanchang this week are both home favorites, as Zhang Shuai and Acapulco champion Wang Yafan both start their campaigns on Tuesday against a pair of Serbians in Aleksandra Krunic and Nina Stojanovic, respectively.
Ironically, each of those matches have taken place on Chinese soil once before: Stojanovic beat Wang in straight sets of the W60 ITF event in Liuzhou in 2016, while Zhang beat Krunic to win the title at the WTA event in Guangzhou in 2017.
Former US Open champion Samantha Stosur is looking for her first hard court win since the Miami Open in March, having lost in the first round of the NYJTL Bronx Open and US Open as she takes on compatriot Arina Rodionova.
Though they have never played, Stosur owns a 36-25 career record against other Australians at all levels. She lost to eventual champion Ashleigh Barty in Miami in her lone match against a compatriot so far this year.
Seventeen-year-old Wang Xinyu will be contesting her fourth WTA main draw of the season, as she faces 21-year-old wildcard Gao Xinyu.
A two-time junior Grand Slam doubles champion in 2018, Wang qualified for the US Open, and gave Maria Sharapova all she could handle in her last main draw appearance on Chinese soil this year at the Shenzhen Open.
