Lesia Tsurenko signed up for the event ranked at 42, highest from all players before wild cards. Along the Ukrainian, Lin Zhu is another player to watch out for. Peyton Stearns is a rising star of the American tennis, and she will also compete at the tournament, attempting to be a contender to reach the later stages of the competition.

Young Czech player Linda Fruhvirtova will also be one to keep an eye on as she's among one of the rising teenage stars. But fans will also want to see Ajla Tomljanovic, who spent the majority of the 2023 season sidelined and will finally want to get some wins behind her belt in Osaka.
