With the four top seeded men and the top two seeded women watching on from the stands after receiving byes, attention is on the likes of Germany’s Simon Rosner, a champion in 2017 and back on the world circuit after his retirement from the PSA World Tour in 2020, and France’s Coline Aumard, who called time on her World Tour career at the end of the 2021/2022 season.

For the home fans, there are five US representatives in action today, with Marina Stefanoni and Haley Mendez up against Colombia’s Laura Tovar and Japan’s Erisa Sano Herring, respectively, in the women’s draw and Christopher Gordon, Faraz Khan and Shahjahan Khan all featuring in the men’s draw.
