Sloane Stephens is aiming for her first win of the year, having lost to Liudmila Samsonova in the first round of Brisbane.
Although Ashleigh Barty was also knocked out in the first round of Brisbane, the WTA World No.1 made it to the final of the doubles alongside Kiki Bertens.
The Australian has a losing record against first-round opponent Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who edged the series 3-2. The last time they met, in 2018 Wuhan, Barty won in three sets.
Simona Halep opens her 2020 campaign against Ajla Tomljanovic, a player she has beaten on both previous occasions they have met. However, both went three sets.
Julia Goerges was unable to defend her Auckland title for the second successive year as she was beaten in the quarterfinals by Caroline Wozniacki.
No.6 seed Aryna Sabalenka has lost both previous meetings against Hsieh Su-Wei, though neither has been on a hard court.
Marketa Vondrousouva holds a 1-0 career record against Tatjana Maria, having defeated her in Miami last year. She has climbed 43 spots on the WTA Ranking to WTA World No.16 since then.
