Who are players to watch out for in 2014 with a CHR > 50 and aged 21 or over?

I'm interested to know who you think we should look out for in 2014? Maybe you've seen something in her game that makes you think she's ready to step up a level this coming season.

For the purposes of getting some more 'interesting' responses other than promising teenagers, let's only include players:
  • who are over the age of 21 at the start of 2014 (so pick only from players born in 1992 or before) and
  • who have not yet broken the top 50.

Please tell me/us what you like about their game and why you think they are on the rise.

Shuai Zhang, obviously. She's always had an awesome game and she seems to have gotten it together in the second half of 2013.

Garbiñe Muguruza. She missed half of the season after Wimbledon with most of the tournaments in her favourite surface. If she has a good start of the season and she arrives to IW and Miami without the pressure of defending most of her points she can really go up in the ranking.

Muguruza is only 20 so she doesn't fit the OP's criteria.

Karolina Pliskova (age 21, CH 63), Julia Glushko (age 23, CH 89)

Can't think of anyone else within these criteria

Thanks for the replies so far. So, what's so good about these players games? Convince me. Give me a reason to watch them when their matches are broadcast.

Pfizenmaier, maybe Piter. Both are able to play really interesting tennis.

Katarzyna Piter She had some good results this year, especially in the fall. She advanced this year over 250 places in the singles ranking and over 100 places in the doubles ranking (winning her first doubles title). She is quite feisty and interesting to watch.

Katarzyna Piter? Maybe, but her game is very limited. Not sure about.
I would say Mother Teresa Torro-Flor.

Another vote for zhang. Also hoping Muguruza recovers well and moves further forward next year.

Re: Who are players to watch out for in 2014 with a CHR > 50 and aged 21 or over?

Zhang Shuai really put together a fabulous end of 2013. Having had a tournament win, and stamina amongst a string of events, this confidence could propel her to the top 50 plus. She is a solid player, and confidence it seems to be what she's lacking.

Torro-Flor has such huge shots. If she can put her game together she could surprise some people.

Agree with Zhang Shuai She's been released from the national team last September I think, so I'm pretty interested how she'll do independently.
