With many big-name tennis stars returning to the game in late 2018-early 2019, they’ve been welcomed by a raft of fresh faces on the court. Having risen through the ranks of junior tournaments, some of the up and coming stars of 2019 will already be well-known to insiders and avid fans but there will be some new names to watch out for in the major tournaments this year.
Russian Dara Kasatkina exceeded expectations when she reached at least the quarterfinals in nine tournaments in 2018. With a final at Indian Wells and quarterfinals at Wimbledon and Roland Garros under her belt, the 2019 season could be even better for the young player.
At just 19 years old, Alex de Minaur is almost the youngest player in the top 100. Currently at his highest ranking thus far, the formidable newcomer has an ATP singles ranking of 28. Having won the Sydney International and the Challenger Tournament in Nottingham, de Minaur’s performance throughout 2018 has made him one to watch in this coming season.
Having won a legion of fans following her performance at the Auckland Open, Bianca Andreescu is sure to have a large following throughout 2019. With a stellar junior Grand Slam record behind her, Andreescu will be keen to echo her earlier performances when she hits the circuit later this year.
Upcoming Tennis Events
With numerous tennis events taking place throughout 2019, there will be plenty of opportunity to see the biggest stars complete with the newest names. Getting underway in May, the French Open is one of the most popular events of the year and the 2019 tournament will be no different. Swiftly followed by the Fever-Tree Tennis Championships, The Boodles Challenge and the Aspall Tennis Classic in June, you’ll have a great opportunity to see the best in the business up their game at smaller venues, before gearing up for Wimbledon, the US Open and the ATP World Tour Masters.
Ending the year with the 2019 Nitto ATP Finals and Champions Tennis 2019 at the Royal Albert Hall in December, it’s going to be a busy twelve months for tennis fans. With so many top-class tournaments taking place, the only difficult choice is how many to attend!
