Top 8 Singles players

As tennis season approaches, we bring you the top eight Singles players to look out for

Angelique Kerber

Angelique Kerber

This left-handed world number one from Germany plays an aggressive game. Kerber is also the winner of the Australian Open and US Open in 2016, making her the one to watch in the competition.

Agnieszka Radwanska

Agnieszka Radwanska

She’s known for her unpredictable playing style as she disguises drop shots and delivers unexpected slices to keep her opponents on their toes. This has led to her being hailed as the ‘Magician’ of pro tennis.

Simona Halep

Simona Halep

Described as the ‘anti-diva’ of the courts, Halep is a class act that will never throw a racquet-obliterating tantrum. Her equally calm and intelligent style of playing has also garnered her much popularity.

Karolina Pliskova

Karolina Pliskova

Pliskova often outplays her opponents with dead-accurate serves. This tall Czech Republic stunner also plays well with identical twin sister Kristyna – they are the first pair of twins to have won a WTA Doubles title together. 

Garbine Muguruza

Garbine Muguruza

Best known for her powerful groundstrokes, this WTA star would ace any strength test. A testament to her prowess: she scored a perfect winning record in the round robin stage. 

Madison Keys

Madison Keys

Keys is set to make her debut appearance at the WTA Finals, and she's one to watch out for as the 21-year-old has been in top form the past year. Not only did she break into the WTA Top 10 in June – the first American to do so since Serena Williams’ placement in 1999 –  she also made a strong showing at the Rio Olympics, where she advanced all the way to the semis.

Dominika Cibulkova

Dominika Cibulkova

Known for her nimble movements and signature phrase ‘Pome!’ (meaning ‘come on’ in Slovak), Cibulkova is an energetic competitor on court. She has already blazed to eight wins in her career – six from WTA and two on the ITF tour.

Johanna Konta

Johanna Konta

Konta got lucky with Serena William’s withdrawal from the WTA Finals due to injury – she was ninth and in the first alternate placing after the top eight qualifiers. But don’t write her off just yet, the British lady is a fighter and has persevered through health scares in the past to emerge strong.
