2020 will be an extremely interesting season for the WTA Tour. Many women players are ready to challenge each other across the world to win titles and become queens. Starting from the Australian season to the WTA Finals, the stars will be able to give new emotions to media, insiders and fans.
Ashleigh Barty, Bianca Andreescu and Naomi Osaka are the three players who start as favorites. Women tennis is often unpredictable but for what we have seen, the Australian, the Canadian and the Japanese will have the chance to win both in the Grand Slam tournaments and in the Premier Mandatory. Simona Halep is currently the only tennis player who can compete with the three rivals for the final victory in a Major.
Halep showed, with the victory at Wimbledon, that she could now compete on every surface with the ambition to win. Perhaps this year Serena Williams will have the last great chance to win the much-dreamed 24th Slam: it won't be an easy goal but the American, if in a good psycho-physical shape, can beat anyone.
After a season full of ups and downs, Elina Svitolina and Angelique Kerber will have the opportunity to start again with new ambitions and new goals. Karolina Pliskova has the necessary weapons to be able to triumph on fast surfaces; the one last step is still missing could eventually arrive in 2020.
Next season will also serve to understand the progress of all the other young women: Amanda Anisimova, Marketa Vondrousova, Sofia Kenin, Dayana Yastremska and Cori Gauff. In 2019 these young girls showed their qualities; now it's time to confirm all these skills.
Will Petra Kvitova have the strength to come back to a Slam final? At Wimbledon, she is one of the few who knows how to play on grass courts, but her discontinuity limits her performances. I honestly don't see many chances for Garbine Muguruza, Sloane Stephens and Maria Sharapova.
Women's tennis needs these three champions, but between injuries and negative performances, there are not many possibilities for them. At least for now.
