Top 5 WTA players to look out for in 2023

We are limiting each player to to one major championship in order to keep things interesting, even though some players, like Alcaraz and Swiatek, may very possibly win multiple major titles next year.

Alcaraz, 19, won his first of many Grand Slam titles, while Swiatek, 21, won his third. Both currently hold the top two rankings in the world and are widely regarded as the sport’s most promising up-and-coming superstars. Three men—Alcaraz, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic—and three women—Swiatek, Ashleigh Barty, and Elena Rybakina—won the most desired trophies this year. It’s not too early to predict who will win in 2023 because there are still four months until the next Grand Slam, a plethora of other competitions, the ATP and WTA Finals, and an all-too-short offseason for the players.

5. Caroline Garcia

Get ready to hear Garcia being a future number one from Andy Murray a couple more times. At the age of 29, she has finally found her footing. And you know what? That is standard. Every sport in the world has late bloomers. Due to her doubles expertise, Garcia has good net abilities, so this year she chose to attempt ripping the ball. Okay, good. Her ascent has been greatly aided by her improving serve. With 394 aces, Garcia leads the tour, surpassing players with a reputation for being excellent servers like Aryna Sabalenka and Elena Rybakina. CarGar is now operational.

4.  Simona Halep

Five of the seven US Open women’s champions up until the 2022 competition had never won a major championship, but Swiatek and other top players have demonstrated consistency, and it seems that a dominant group will take home the majority of crowns in the years to come. Uncertainty surrounds who will be in Swiatek’s group, however Halep, a two-time Grand Slam victor and winner of the 1000-level Canadian Open in August, is a possibility. She has recently experienced a comeback, reaching the Wimbledon semifinals this summer in addition to taking home the title in Toronto, and was considered one of the favorites to win the 2022 US Open before losing in the first round.

3. Coco Gauff

Gauff’s future as a prominent champion seemed all but guaranteed since he first entered the scene in 2019 at the age of 15. She got close in 2022, making it to the US Open quarterfinals and the Roland Garros final, and it looks like she may finally break through in 2023. With her game advancing and her career-first position in the top 10, Melbourne feels like the ideal location for her to win her maiden major championship.

2. Ons Jabeur

Wimbledon seems to be completely open for the women right now, in contrast to the men’s game. However, Jabeur, who advanced to the US Open and All England Club finals in 2022, will be looking to make up for her two disappointing Grand Slam efforts in the upcoming year. She has won two of her three career titles on the surface, and the grass is a good fit for her diversified approach. Jabeur has claimed she will eventually win a Grand Slam, and Wimbledon next year seems to be her best opportunity. Top 5 WTA players .

1. Iga Swiatek

Swiatek proved she can compete on a variety of surfaces in the US Open and earlier in the season when she went on a 37-match winning streak. Clay, though, continues to be her favorite and dominant surface. She only lost two sets while winning three titles, including the French Open, on clay in 2022. Nobody will likely be able to defeat her in the foreseeable future in Paris. Top 5 WTA players.
