[1] Angelique Kerber

Three-time Slam champion and the reigning Wimbledon champion, Kerber moves into the top spot here, due to Simona Halep’s withdrawal due to a back injury. Her partnership with Wim Fissette helped shun the memories of a forgettable 2017 season after her outstanding ascent to Slam-winning form in 2016.

Since her win at Wimbledon, her US and Asian swing seemed pretty short lived by comparison and many were surprised at the abrupt end to her coaching relationship with Fissette, with the announcement stating it was effective immediately.

Kerber’s best at the WTA Finals is a run to the final in 2016, where she lost to Dominika Cibulkova.

 

[2] Caroline Wozniacki

Spurred on by her win of what was her biggest title to date in Singapore last year, Wozniacki went on to get rid of the monkey on her back in winning her first Slam at the Australian Open. Injuries in the second half of the season threatened to derail the rest of her season, but her resurgence in Beijing saw her pick up another title, together with Eastbourne.

Her best performance was of course winning the title last year.

Winner of the Rising Stars 2015 as a pre-cursor to the WTA Finals, Osaka claimed the Indian Wells crown in the spring, before winning her maiden Slam at the US Open, keeping her head and her focus as everything spin out of control for the returning Serena Williams this year.

She will be making her debut in the Singles tournament.

[4] Petra Kvitova

As if her return to active duty after the knife attack that almost halted her career was not triumphant enough, Kvitova’s form in the early part of the year through to the grass court season was impressive, winning the most titles (five) this year including two sets of back to back wins which gave her the longest unbeaten streak in 2018, with 14 matches won on the bounce – her title run to St Petersburg, Fed Cup, the title in Doha and then reaching the third round of Indian Wells.

She won the WTA Finals title in 2011.

The BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore will take place between the 21-28 October.
