The 19-year-old Gauff will take on Austrian Julia Grabher in Friday night’s first singles match, beginning at 6 p.m. ET.

Pegula will play world No. 153 Sinja Kraus in the night’s second singles match, completing Friday’s schedule.

On Saturday, Pegula will meet Grabher at 2 p.m., with Gauff scheduled to play Kraus second.

Danielle Collins and Caty McNally are the nominated U.S. doubles team, scheduled to play Kraus and Melanie Klaffner after Saturday’s two singles.
