For the WTA, singles, doubles and mixed are combined for total earnings. Here are the #2 players for 2018: Caroline Wozniacki (WTA) and Minjee Lee (LPGA). CAROLINE … Continue reading

Australian Open 2018: Sweet Caroline!
The women’s final at the 2018 Australian Open was going to be special regardless of the outcome. It was a battle between the top two ranked players in the world. But more than that, it was a battle between arguably the two best players currently on tour without a Major win in singles. While it … Continue reading
Australian Open 2018: Women’s Singles Title Will Be Won By…Somebody?
I have no idea who’s going to win the women’s singles title at the Australian Open 2018. I suppose technically nobody really knows unless you somehow have a sports almanac from the future and you’re busy amassing your fortune. The defending champion, Serena Williams, isn’t quite ready to come back and compete. There were some … Continue reading
Caroline Wozniacki, Kristina Mladenovic, Timea Bacsinszky and Jelena Ostapenko First Four Into Roland Garros 2017 Quarterfinals
Not only will there be a first time women’s singles champion at Roland Garros in 2017, whichever player is the last woman standing will be a first time Major champion. The top half of the draw has determined the first four quaterfinalists – Caroline Wozniacki, Kristina Mladenovic, Timea Bacsinszky and Jelena Ostapenko. Wozniacki, a former … Continue reading
2017 Miami Open Winner Johanna Konta: The Next Major Champion?
Although the runner-up at the 2017 Australian Open in women’s singles was Venus Williams, I submit that the 2nd best player (to Serena, obviously) in Melbourne was Great Britain’s Johanna Konta. She had the misfortune of facing Serena in the quarters in a match where Konta played tight as a drum and fell short of … Continue reading
WTA Players Step Out At 2016 China Open Players Party
I don’t know if Garbine Muguruza will successfully defend her title at the 2016 China Open, but she was certainly a winner on the red carpet, as all the ladies of the WTA were. Play has already started at this event, with Venus Williams, Carla Suarez Navarro and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova all being first round seeded … Continue reading
Caroline Wozniacki Wins 2016 Toray Pan Pacific Open
Building on her improved play over the summer, Caroline Wozniacki won her first tournament of the season at the 2016 Toray Pan Pacific Open. The former world #1, a semifinalist at the US Open earlier this month, took out Japan’s Naomi Osaka in the Tokyo final, 7-5 6-3. After being down 5-7 0-5, Osaka rallied … Continue reading
2016 US Open Day 9: Caroline Wozniacki, Angelique Kerber First To Advance To Women’s Semifinals
Angelique Kerber making it to the semifinals of the 2016 US Open…okay, that I could see coming. But Caroline Wozniacki, the former world #1 who has slipped to world #74, being there to meet Kerber in the finals? That is quite the surprise. Perhaps it shouldn’t have been. This is the Major that has seen … Continue reading
2016 US Open Day 7: Caroline Wozniacki, Angelique Kerber Move Into Quarterfinals
Not only did I watch two of my top three favorites (Madison Keys and Petra Kvitova) lose today on day 7 of the 2016 US Open, it was like watching the same match twice. Keys and Kvitova are two players with power, skill and tremendous serves. Unfortunately, those strengths are often negated by their propensity … Continue reading
2016 US Open Day 5: Madison Keys Comes Back From 1-5 Down In Final Set To Win Third Round Match Against Naomi Osaka
Oh. My. Goodness. In her young career Madison Keys has shown power, skill and athleticism. On day 5, in her third round match at the 2016 US Open, the 8th seed escaped a spirited upset bid from another up and coming player, Naomi Osaka, by showing tremendous heart. Maddie appeared down and out at 1-5 … Continue reading
