I can see a couple of these winning a title in 2019. Probably pick Tomljanovic if I had to go for just one. You'd think Nanchang moving places in the calendar would harm Zheng's chances a bit, but you never know especially as she should be a seed in a lot of internationals for a good few months.

Probably be a few less expected, out of the blue ones like Danilovic and AKS last year.

I like how all the pictures are action or celebration shots, except for Putintseva's which is her dropping her racket... :haha: Very appropriate in terms of her title chances too.

My tips would be Sakkari nad Kužmová. I think it is only a matter of time when all aligns for Sakkari barring career altering injury and Kužmová could get on a run snatch some International like Bogota slam, that event even had a Slovak winner last year.

Most unlikely to win a tournament : Rodina
It feels like Rodina has been on the tour for 15+ years already - weird to see her not having a single international title to her name.
