Also in action will be Venus Williams, who is unseeded this tournament after falling to 21 in the world ranking, as she takes on Great Britain's Laura Robson in her opener. The two have never played before this with Williams not featured in any competitive tennis since her Fed Cup win over Johanna Larsson four weeks ago. 

Also taking court today will be 16th seeded Kei Nishikori, who defeated Roger Federer last week in a Madrid Masters match. He will take on Italian wild-card Paolo Lorenzi in his first round match, having never faced him before. 

11th seeded and Croatia's Cilic will be up against a Kazakh qualifier Andrey Golubev while Su-Wei Hsieh will look to challenge ninth seeded Stosur. 

Cilic will need to overturn his three-match losing streak on clay as he looks to take on his 197th-ranked opponent in his first round match. The story isn't too different for Australia's world number nine Stosur, who has now lost in the first round at both, Stuttgart and Madrid and needs to get some solid boost in the lead-up to the French Open.
