The Russian is followed in Stadium 1 by Canada's Bianca Andreescu who takes on the USA's Alison Riske.

Number 21 seed Cameron Norrie will aim to continue his fine 2021 form when he locks horns with American Tennys Sandgren. The 26-year-old is currently in 14th place in the race to Turin and will be hoping to bolster his bid to make the men's season finale with a good run in the desert. The British No.2 reached his fifth ATP Tour final in San Diego last week and has lofty ambitions of taking his game to another level in the months and years ahead.
Speaking on the eve of his clash with Sandgren, he said:
Being British number one is not the goal. I am more focussed on getting to number one in the world. That is my dream. Of course I would love to play a Wimbledon final, but I just want to get that number one spot. I believe I can do it, there are areas of my game I would like to improve."

Match of the day

Meanwhile, current British No.1 Dan Evans meets Japan's Kei Nishikori in what is an eye-catching round two affair.
Nishikori leads the match-up 3-1 and has triumphed in their last three encounters, including a 6-3 6-4 victory at Indian Wells back in 2017. It's also worth keeping tabs on Cori Gauff's showdown with Caroline Garcia and the all-American match between Frances Tiafoe and Sebastian Korda.
