The 2017 WTA Season Looking A Lot Like Early 2003
One of the major tennis storylines of 2017 has been the opening up of the field on the WTA tour.
With a number of former dominant players, like Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka, out of the game and others, like Maria Sharapova and Petra Kvitova, still early in their return, 2017 has presented a massive opportunity to the tour’s ‘rising stars. Out of 13 Premier and Grand Slam events completed this season, 10 different women have taken the title win. This has given tennis fans many possible picks for who will emerge as the next major threat on the WTA tour.
