Other players who could take part include Victoria Azarenka, Sloane Stephens and Monica Puig.

The field will also include Amanda Anisimova, Jennifer Brady, Danielle Collins, Emma Navarro, Alison Riske and Shelby Rogers as well as Canadians Eugenie Bouchard and Leylah Fernandez and Australia’s Ajla Tomljanovic.
