They are aiming to join three Australian contenders already in the main draw – Ajla Tomljanovic, Astra Sharma and wildcard Daria Saville.

Storm Sanders, who qualified in Paris last year, has been handed one of the toughest first-round assignments. The 27-year-old faces world No.99 Zhu Lin of China.
