Angelique is no.10 seed and has a first-round BYE. She will open campaign against either Ekaterina Makarova (RUS) or Kirsten Flipkens (BEL).
Defending champion Elena Vesnina is Angie’s potential opponent in R3, while Caroline Wozniacki (DEN, 2) might await her in quarter-finals.
Last year Angelique was stopped by Vesnina in R4 (3-6, 3-6).
