Their match will be followed by Garbine Muguruza (5) of Spain versus Katerina Siniakova of Czechia.

In the third match, Petra Kvitova of Czechia will try to outdo Fiona Ferro of France.

Later, the day’s can’t-miss match featuring current titleholder Bianca Andreescu (2) and Harriet Dart of Great Britain is slated for 7 p.m.

To close out the evening, veteran champion Victoria Azarenka (8) will battle Sorana Cirstea of Romania.

There will be four other matches on the outer courts. Elise Mertens (9) of Belgium will challenge Camila Giorgi of Italy on Court 9, and Elena Rybakina (12) of Kazakhstan will have to contend with Liudmila Samsonova of Russia.
