MATCH POINTS

This will be the first meeting between Donna Vekic and Chloe Paquet. Vekic, the 2017 Nature Valley Open champion, owns more wins at Nottingham than any other player in the draw. She improved that total to nine after her first round-win over Dalila Jakupovic.

Top seed Caroline Garcia will face wild card Maia Lumsden for the first time. Garcia, who is making her Nottingham debut, seeks her second career WTA grass-court singles title after triumphing at Mallorca in 2016. Lumsden is currently ranked at a career-high World No.280.

This will also be the first meeting between Ajla Tomljanovic and Harriet Dart. Six British players started in the main draw, and Dart and Lumsden are the two Brits who have successfully advanced to the second round.

Maria Sakkari and Ivana Jorovic will square off for the first time. Sakkari reached the quarterfinals in her only prior appearance at Nottingham, in 2017, where she then lost to eventual champion Vekic.

Tatjana Maria, who will take on Bernarda Pera in their first meeting, picked up her maiden Nottingham match victory over former finalist Monica Niculescu in the first round on Wednesday, in a final-set tiebreak. Maria won her first-ever WTA singles title last year, on the grass courts of Mallorca.
