Second seed up against former world number five
In what will no doubt be a highlight of day one, second seed Sara Errani, will meet one of the WTA’s most successful players – Daniela Hantuchova. The pair has met nine times in the past six years, and boast similar career titles.
2014 saw Hantuchova reach the third round of the Australian Open and Roland Garros, as well as the semi-final of Marrakesh; while Errani has had a strong season reaching the quarter-finals of both the French Open and the US Open, where she beat Venus Williams en route.
