Feel sorry for Bencic, she probably wants a rest by now but is forced to play this, defending Taipei title last year.

LUX Tyler , Vegas and now Houston...

Plus she played 3 Q in Lux, must be feeling tired surely.

This is only happening because of the injuries last year , started her comeback in November 2017 after a long injury lay off to gain some match sharpness and needs to defend her points.

I was sad (5)Kucova v Chirico did play now, but both may get IN...? But KK is on winning way... we'll see!

She doesn't necessarily 'need' to defend these points. It's not like she will drop out of AO direct entry if she didn't, but if she doesn't want to drop 20-30 places, then obviously she could do with picking up some useful points, so playing these makes absolute sense.

It's also to do with not having a full season this year. After getting injured at IW, she missed Miami and all of April, probably coming back too early at the French and then not really finding anything until Wimbledon. If she had a full season this year and was a lot higher ranked, I doubt she would play many of these events, a bit like I'm sure Sabalenka isn't too bothered that she has 160 points coming off later this month.

She may get her match in the 2nd round against lookalike Haddad Maia which looked very likely to be the final in Tyler last week, before Bencic's shock defeat.

(8)Bouzkova v Gibbs - this is like 8th seed vs the 9th one, both lost to Bencic in Vegas. Tough draw.

Not attending today because of rain, but will definitely be there tomorrow.
I didn't know Sabs was going to be playing doubles, but glad to see her out there, practicing with Heather Watson.
Whitney looked good in qualifying so I'm watching out for her, along with Gibbsy, Bebe, Davis, Pegula.
Chirico lost her final round of qualies, but got in LL with the gal who lost to Whitney. Hoping she gets out of her funk.
