Bouchard was then given a wildcard to compete in the Chennai Open, where she faced Joanne Zuger in the first round. She had a 4-1 lead in the first set, but her opponent fought her way back into the match to regain serve. Bouchard prevailed in the ensuing tie-break to win the set. The second set was more one-sided, with Bouchard dominating the final five games to take the match.
Karman Kaur Thandi, who received a wildcard to compete in Chennai, was drawn in the first round against eighth seed Chloe Paquet.

Thandi saved a break point in the sixth game of the second set and then broke Paquet’s serve in the next game to take a 4-3 lead. After a few games, the 24-year-old served out the set to force a tiebreaker. The Indian trailed 2-0 in the third set but quickly tied it up. Thandi won the match 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 after winning four consecutive games from 3-2.
