Best Picks for the 2020 Australian Open Women’s Singles

The first Slam of the year is always tough to predict.

After all, the players are coming off a rare break in December, so there is still some rust to shake off.

The heat also adds to the unpredictability factor.

1. Naomi Osaka

Career Australian Open Record: 13-3, 1 title

2019 Australian Open Result: Champion.

As the reigning champion, Osaka should be considered an obvious choice.

The Japanese star won back-to-back Slams with the 2018 US Open and the 2019 Australian Open titles.

The former WTA number 1 is a hard court specialist, with all her seven finals and five titles coming on the fast surface.

Osaka had a poor run after securing her second major trophy and did not make it to another final until September.

She ended the year with a good run but withdrew from the WTA Finals with a shoulder injury.

If Osaka is healthy heading into the tournament, she will definitely be among the favorites.

Her inconsistent form through 2019 could be a bad indicator, although the improvement towards the end of the year improves her chances.

2. Ashleigh Barty

Career Australian Open Record: 8-6.

2019 Australian Open Result: Quarterfinals.

Number 1 in the WTA rankings, coming off a career year and the local factor.

When taking these three things into consideration, it’s easy to understand why Barty is among the early favorites to win the Australian Open.

She could become the first Australian player to win the singles title at home since 1978.

Barty is coming off another important win at the WTA Finals.

Her strong record on the hard surface is also a massive boost for her chances.

Barty made it to the quarterfinals last year, her best result at the major.

3. Bianca Andreescu

Career Australian Open Record: 1-1.

2019 Australian Open Result: Round 2.

Andreescu stood out among the young generation of WTA players.

The Canadian rising star won two Premier titles in 2019.

She then took it a step further and defeated Serena Williams to win the US Open title.

The 2019 sensation even held a 16-game winning streak.

Andreescu struggled to remain healthy over the course of the season, dealing with shoulder, back and knee injuries.

If she does manage to remain at the top of her game, the young Canadian will definitely be among the contenders for the Slam.

4. Serena Williams

Career Australian Open Record: 85-11.

2019 Australian Open Result: Quarterfinals.

As always, Williams is among the early favorites.

Still chasing after the elusive 24th career major title, Williams will have another shot at the mark in January.

Her most recent Slam win came at the Australian Open, back in 2017.

She has made it to four major finals since then, losing all four without taking a single set away from their opponents.

The longtime number 1 player still has a decent shot at adding another historic achievement to her career.

Williams isn’t as dominant as she used to be anymore, but she still is one of the best picks for the tournament.
