Players to watch in 2021
There is plenty of talent in both the men’s and women’s games, but who are the major contenders in every event? Find out who is playing the best tennis at the moment right here.
The Men’s World number one has had a big season that could end with the ‘Golden Slam’ if he wins the US Open later in the year. Another positive, if he wins in the States, would be that he would overtake Roger Federer and become the most successful Grand Slam title winner in history with 21 wins.
Ashleigh Barty has done something many tennis players have tried and failed at. Knock Serena Williams off her perch. The Aussie sensation has stormed up the tennis rankings and is more than holding her own on the top spot.
Spanish superstar Rafa Nadal needs little introduction. The 20 time Grand Slam winner is one of the GOATs of the game and he is still going strong at the age of 35. He particularly likes clay, and has won a staggering 13 Grand Slam titles alone at Roland Garros.
Currently, Naomi Osaka is one of the most exciting names in Tennis. She is only 23 years of age and already has four Grand Slam titles to her name. As interesting off the court and she is on it, she has lit up the tennis world over the past few years and is exactly what the women’s game needs now that Serena is coming to the end of her career.
Best events in Tennis
Tennis tournaments may take place all over the world throughout the season, but there are a few that a simply must-watch for all fans. Check them out here.
The Australian Open is the one all tennis players want to get their hands on. It’s the earliest Grand Slam event and takes place every year at Melbourne Park. Novak Djokovic has won an impressive 9 titles here, and who would bet against him doing the same in 2022.
Roland Garros (French Open)
The only Grand Slam event to take place on a clay surface is Roland Garros, aka the French Open. It is a particularly happy hunting ground for Rafael Nadal, who has won an impressive 13 titles in the French capital.
Wimbledon is a bit like the royalty of the tennis world. Roger Federer and Serena Williams have taken a bag full of wins here over the years. The tournament is played just outside of Central London on lush green grass courts, and there is always a celeb or two in the crowd.
