2022 Australian Open finalist, Danielle Collins is the fourth-seeded player and she will start against Magdalena Frech from Poland. Another Polish player appears on the line 1 of the draw, as Magda Linette, this year's Australian Open semifinalist is the first-seeded player. She will start against Varvara Gracheva.
