The Brisbane International is about to start and the top 4 players to follow are Ashleigh Barty, Naomi Osaka, Elina Svitolina and Karolina Pliskova.
The world no.1 will kick start her 2020 in Brisbane where she is widely considered as the favorite to win the title according to bet365 whose odds are 4.33. Barty ended last season on the WTA Tour in the best possible way after she conquered the WTA Finals.
The Japanese seems to have found the motivation again. Last year, she won the home tournament in Osaka and Beijing back to back. She was stopped by an injury during the WTA Finals after she defeated Petra Kvitova in a 3-set battle. The odds of Naomi winning Brisbane are 5/1.
Even if the Ukrainian is “only” ranked no.6, she is considered as the favorite no.3 to conquer Brisbane. She ended last season on a high note being the runner-up at the WTA Finals
The Czech is ranked no.2. However, according to bet365 she is “only” the favorite no.3 alongside Svitolina.
