Emma Raducanu is set to play American Shelby Rogers when she makes her Grand Slam return at the Australian Open following an eight-month injury lay-off.
The 21-year-old Briton, who had wrist and ankle surgeries last May, could play British number one Katie Boulter in the Melbourne third round.
Boulter starts against China’s Yuan Yue, with 12th seed Zheng Qinwen looming in the second round.
The Australian Open, which is the first Grand Slam event of the 2024 season, starts at Melbourne Park on Sunday.
The tournament has been extended to 15 days, in a move which organisers say will alleviate late-night finishes, and culminates with the finals weekend on 27-28 January.
