MATCH POINTS

Svetlana Kuznetsova was the 2014 champion here, beating Kurumi Nara in the final, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4.

Belinda Bencic has been the doubles champion here, though, alongside Kristina Mladenovic in 2015, when the pair beat Lara Arruabarrena and Andreja Klepac 7-5, 7-6(7) in the final.

That year was Bencic's only previous appearance in the singles competition here, when she made it to the Round of 16 but lost in straight sets to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, 6-2, 6-4.

All the singles matches that begin today are first-time encounters except for Yulia Putintseva and Jennifer Brady. The pair met a few weeks ago at the French Open, when Putintseva won 6-4, 6-3 in the Round of 64.
