Well totally weird season but season but thanks to all the ladies who made the effort to keep us entertained.:)
The likes of Aryna and Elise were playing right until the end.
Though obviously a player who produces the sort of consistent level of results Elise does could never appear on my Favourites list.:p

1.Petra Kvitova: Solid enough season for Petra and a RG semi-final isn't to be sniffed at. Not many chances left though.
2. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Arguably the player on tour least affected by the pandemic as Pavly often takes an 8 month break mid season. Unfortunately this year the end of season was also shit.
3.Alona Ostapenko. Penko suffered from an absence of grass season.And also from being an inconsistent headcase. Taking the Bot apart was possibly my highlight of 2020 though.
4.Madison Keys.Thought a player injured as often as Maddie might cope OK with the stop-start year.But wasn't to be. And of course she got injured again. Meh.
5. Ana Konjuh. The best news of a very shitty tennis season - Ana is back bashing balls again.:love: Everything is crossed!!!
6. Elena Rybakina. Very happy to be able to cheer on another Lena on tour once again! (doubles game still needs a bit of work though).
7.Naomi Osaka. Naomi was increasingly impressive off court and still lethal on it.Could be a contender at every hardcourt Slam as long as she is interested.
8.Zarina Diyas: Zarina started the season really well, so at that point a season destroying pandemic was probably inevitable.
9 Aryna Sabalenka. Very impressive end to the year for Sabs. Needs to do it at a Slam now!
10. Daria Kasatkina. Dasha plays a pretty different game to the players I would usually support so maybe I detected early on she was Headcase... What the future hold is anyone's guess at this point.


As always struggle to find 5 players to actively dislike though there are a few traditional favourites.....

1.Kiki Mladenovic. Kiki recovered from being wrongfully imprisoned in a NY hotel room to win the RG doubles title in arguably the greatest sporting comeback since Nikki Lauda. Except nobody cared.Peasants.
2 Laura Siegemund. Laz played doubles with Bepa this year.It's incredibly stressful praying one half of a doubles teams wins and the other half loses.:LOL:
3. Woz makes the list courtesy of playing the AO. I'm getting emotional just thinking about it.
4.BMS: I don't at all mind watching Bethanie on court.Unfortunately this season a lot of time was spent off court.:rolleyes:
5.Coco Vanderwhere? Is Coco still active? I'll vote for her anyway for old times sake.

I've always liked Mattek-Sands but I've somehow found her rather grating this year, probably because she's been so ubiquitous!

I think for the first time since 09 I won't be posting a list :(. Just haven't watched enough tennis, and I'm certainly not interested in crowdless events. They're just not the same. I look forward to the results still :).

:eek: Seriously, that's the first dislike that I've seen for Iga in these lists - EVER! Surely smashing her racquet in the match against Vickery in New York can't have been enough by itself (because that's the only bad behaviour I can remember about her season), so why? I'm really curious!

  1. Yastremska - her gamesmanship, attention-seeking, opportunistic behaviour irritates me more than any other WTA player
  2. Andreescu - for all those "will she, won't she play" questions in a year full of more important questions
  3. Sharapova - the last time we'll be able to nominate her in these lists :p

Every player garners haters eventually, it's a Law of the Universe.
