15 Unknowns Who Will break onto the Scene in 2012 ???


Petra Kvitova

If you are a regular reader of this blog you know I have been highlighting players that the Challenger Tennis Blog chose as “Ones to Watch”.  These players were chosen at the end of last December and were ALL ranked outside of the the top 150 in the World.  According to the Bleacher Report this list of 15 players on the WTA tour ” who seem poised to make an impact on women’s tennis come 2012. For this particular slideshow, the term “unknown” will be used loosely…”  I would have to say, any list that has the #2 player in the world – Petra Kvitova – the reigning Wimbledon Champion and the WTA Player of the Year, listed as an “unknown” is certainly using the word loosely.  And what about the phrase poised to make an impact? Hasn’t the player with the second highest ranking made an impact already.  I wish there was a site like Challenger Tennis for the Women.  If anyone knows of one, let me know (there is a great Women’s Tennis Blog called On The Baseline but it does not cover the lower ranked players and lesser tournaments like Challenger Tennis does).  To be fair,one of the players covered by this slideshow is #92 in the world – Heather Watson of Great Britain, but the list also includes several top 20 players – Agnieszka Radwanska (#8), Shuia Peng (#17) and Dominika Cibulkova (#18).  To see the entire slideshow – CLICK HERE
