Sania Mirza played in Auckland and lost in the first round of the qualifiers against American Coco Vandeweghe. Sania is the only Indian this year to represent her country in the singles competition at the Australian Open.

If Sania is able to cross the first round hurdle, she may be up against 28th seed Belgian Yanina Wickmayer, who will open her campaign against Kazakhstan Galina Voskoboeva.
