PLAYERS TO WATCH

Sofia KENIN (#4)

Kenin was announce the Player of the Year in 2020 thanks to her maiden grand slam (Australian Open) and her runner up at Roland Garros. She has proven to be a contender at every event she plays and only weeks away from her title defence in Australia she will need a strong showing.

Aryna SABALENKA (#10)

Sabalenka finished the 2020 season with 2 titles (Ostrava Open & Linz Open) finishing the year in the Top 10 for the first time in her career. She is in very good form and with her big hitting game on the fast courts of Abu Dhabi she could prove tough to beat.

Ons JABEUR (#31)

Jabeur had a break out year in 2020 reaching a career high 31 in the world and making the QF of the Australian Open, R4 of Roland Garros and R3 of the US Open. She is yet to win a title but with strong performances on the big stage she is primed for a break through in 2021.
