No.4 seed Carla Suárez Navarro and Christina McHale have not played each other in six years. Both of their career meetings came in 2011 on hard courts, and they split them - Suárez Navarro winning 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the first round of the Australian Open, and McHale gaining her revenge 6-2, 6-2 in the second round of New Haven.

No.1 doubles seeds Chan Yung-Jan and Chan Hao-Ching are reuniting for just the second time since February. Between 2013 and 2017, the sisters won nine titles together - the second highest tally of trophies for a team of sisters on the WTA Tour after Venus and Serena Williams. Following their victory in Taipei in February, though, they have gone largely separate ways. Yung-Jan has teamed up with Martina Hingis to take the doubles game by storm, compiling a 19-3 win-loss record with the Swiss player. Hao-Ching will be hoping some of that success rubs off on her, as her record with various other partners in that time is just 5-6.

24-year-old wildcard entrant Amandine Hesse is playing the second round of a WTA Tour event for just the third time in her career. Prior to her first-round win over Natalia Vikhlyantseva here, her previous WTA-level victories had come in 2015 - over Jarmila Wolfe at Roland Garros and over María Irigoyen in Québec City.

No.9 seed Monica Puig has played Kristyna Pliskova just once before - and she must be hoping it’s slightly easier today than her 4-6, 7-6(6), 9-7 win in the second round of the 2016 Australian Open, which took her two hours and twenty minutes and necessitated saving five match points.

The Australian duo of Ashleigh Barty and Casey Dellacqua were a significant force in the game in 2013, reaching three Slam finals together. Now that Barty has returned to the Tour full-time, they've resumed their partnership - and have already scored a title in Kuala Lumpur and a quarterfinal showing at the Australian Open this year.
