British No.4 Naomi Broady of Cheshire leads the charge on the opening day of qualifying, taking on Belinda Bencic of Switzerland, in the third match on Centre Court (not before 12.30pm).

Broady will be joined in the Aegon International qualifying draw by four British wild cards. Tara Moore will face qualifying No.5 seed Lauren Davis (USA) in the fourth match on Court 2.

Samantha Murray takes on No.2 seeded Christina McHale in the fourth match on Centre Court, while Katie Boulter takes on Tamira Paszek (AUT) in the fourth match on Court No.1.

Jade Windley’s first round qualifying match against No.3 seed Ajla Tomljanovic rounds off the British contingent’s interest on the opening day of qualifying at the Aegon International, which also sees qualifying top seed Karolina Pliskova, 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone, and WTA Tour rising star Donna Vekic in action on the grass courts of Devonshire Park.
