The world No one is going to perform her primary competition since her triumph in AO 2019 at the WTA Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships this season and is going to be her 1st while not having Bajin in her corner.

Angelique Kerber would be expecting that history does not repeat by itself at the WTA Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships later on this few weeks, after she have got to the semi-finals in both 2017 and 2018 before running up against ultimate champion Elina Svitolina.


Kerber will need to face the two-time Wimbledon champion and 2019 Sydney champion Petra Kvitova, 2018 Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki, current French Open champ Simona Halep together with other top placed contenders.

Another very anticipated arrival in Dubai is the one of Petra Kvitova. Immediately after Melbourne, Petra traveled to St. Petersburg where she lost to Donna Vekic in the quarter-final and she is going to require some well-deserved rest before returning to action in Dubai, competing against the fantastic group of players and seeking out the title 6 seasons after receiving the 1st.

Shifting rankings with Doha this year, Dubai seems to have the most significant winning prize funds from all the WTA Premier 5 tournaments.

As the number two seed, Kvitova might deal with Osaka in the last stage in the event that both players win all their very own prior games, we can have a reprise of the Australian Open 2019 final in Dubai.

Due to Naomi Osaka still recovering from an problem and Kvitova not in best form, there may very well be a few considerable upsets along the way this year in Dubai.
