The 29-year-old was handed a wildcard for this year's event and will now face Pennetta in the first round.

Ipswich tennis star, Elena Baltacha says she is considering her future on a 'week-by-week' basis after being knocked out of Wimbledon in the second round yesterday.
She struggled from the off against defending champion Petra Kvitova, the Czech taking the first set 6-0 in just 22 minutes.
Baltacha put up more of a fight in the second set, but eventually went down 6-0, 6-4.
Speaking last night, she said: "Last year I said I was going to retire after the Olympics, but I think I'm going to take it on a week-by-week basis.
"If I still really enjoy it, if I still believe I'm improving and I still love it, then I'll carry on.
"I still enjoy competing and at the moment I want to keep going, but I don't want to put any pressure on myself."
