Another experienced German player awaits Azarenka in the second round after Kerber swept past qualifier Misaki Doi 6-2, 6-1.

Veronika Kudermetova eliminated the eighth-seeded Karolina Muchova 7-6 (5), 5-7, 6-2 in a first-round match lasting two-and-a-half hours. Her next opponent is qualifier Liudmila Samsonova.
