No.2 seed Kiki Bertens is playing in her 26th tournament of the season – more than any other player. She has an opening-round record of 21-4.
Kaia Kanepi is chasing her second Top 10 win since 2014. Her only other such success was her shock victory over Simona Halep at the 2018 US Open.
Bertens has faced Kanepi only once before, losing 6-4, 6-4 in Seoul in 2012.
Elina Svitolina, the top-ranked player in the draw at WTA World No.4, has confirmed her presence at the Shiseido WTA Finals, where she is the defending champion, but has not won a title since picking up that crown nearly 12 months ago.
Veronika Kudermetova is chasing her second Top 10 win of recent weeks, having scored a career-best success over WTA World No.10 Belinda Bencic in Wuhan last month. She has never faced a Top 5 player before.
Anastasija Sevastova, who was a semifinalist in Moscow last year, scored her first victory since the US Open by beating Aliaksandra Sasnovich in the first round.
Kristina Mladenovic, beaten both times by the Latvian in their previous meetings, is seeking to break a run of five-straight second-round losses at the Kremlin Cup.
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova reached the final of Osaka last month, where she lost to Naomi Osaka. That was the only occasion she has negotiated a second-round match since Monterrey in April.
