Ashleigh Barty likely to be the top ranked 2019 WTA Singles player
Naomi Osaka is also among the top contenders to top the 2019 WTA Singles Rankings
This year, 2017 and 2018 world No.1 Simona Halep might have to make way for a new WTA Singles Rankings star. According to our 2019 Top WTA Singles Rankings betting predictions, Ashleigh Barty could end the year as the new world No.1. However, other tennis players such as Naomi Osaka won’t go down without a fight.
The year ending WTA Singles Rankings are determined by player results from a maximum of 16 tournaments. These are some of the women’s tennis players 2019 Top WTA Singles Rankings betting odds on 1xBET Sportsbook:
Ashleigh Barty likely to end the year on top according to our 2019 Top WTA Singles Rankings betting predictions
Ashleigh Barty currently tops the WTA Singles Rankings with 6605 points (as of 15 July 2019). She achieved her career highest ranking on June 24 thanks to wins at the Miami Open, French Open and Birmingham Classic. Fortunately, Barty will likely be the world No.1 with 1xBET Sportsbook 2019 Top WTA Singles Rankings betting odds at +100.
However, the current world No.2 Naomi Osaka closely follows behind with 6257 points. Consequently, top 4 finishes in Barty’s remaining tournaments will be crucial if she’s to top the 2019 WTA Singles Rankings. Achieving this would be a remarkable rise to the top story for the Australian who ranked world No.1 289 4 years ago.
Naomi Osaka to challenge Ashleigh Barty to regain world No.1 spot
Japan’s Naomi Osaka trails behind Ashleigh Barty with good 2019 Top WTA Singles Rankings betting odds at +332 on 1xBET Sportsbook. Osaka ascended into the WTA No.1 spot on January 28 following her 2019 Australian Open win. However, she dropped to world No.2 after a Round of 16 exit at the 2019 Birmingham Classic.
Wimbledon would have been her best opportunity to regain the top spot in the WTA Singles Rankings. Unfortunately, she suffered an early exit from the Grand Slam tournament. As a result the current world No.3 Karolína Plíšková is slowly closing the gap. Fortunately, Naomi Osaka still has many opportunities remaining in the 2019 WTA Calendar to return to the top.
Serena Williams unlikely to record 10th No.1 WTA Singles Rankings this year
Many Serena Williams fans would be sad knowing she stands a small chance of topping the 2019 WTA Rankings. According to the online sportsbook news in the US, her 2019 Top WTA Singles Rankings betting odds stand at +600. She’s currently world No.9 with 3,411 points, an improvement from her 2018 year ending 16th place ranking.
However, according to our 2019 Top WTA Singles Rankings betting predictions, it’s doubtful that William’s will be this year’s world No.1. Unlike most of the top 1xBET Sportsbook contenders, Serena Williams hasn’t won any tournaments this year. However, she was the Wimbledon finalist and Australian Open quarter-finalist. This earned her enough points to mark her return to the top 10 WTA Singles Rankings.
2011 world No.1 Caroline Wozniacki should aim for top 10 2019 WTA Singles Rankings
Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki is one of the underdogs on 1xBET Sportsbook to top this year’s WTA Rankings. The last time Wozniacki (+1400) was the world No.1 was in 2011. However, it’s doubtful that she’ll achieve the same success this year according to our 2019 Top WTA Singles Rankings betting predictions.
So far, she is the world No.18 with 2478 points. Consequently, she’s at risk of not improving her No.3 2018 WTA Singles Rankings by the end of this year. Additionally, with no tournament wins this year, topping the 2019 WTA Singles Rankings might be out of reach for Wozniacki.
Maria Sharapova’s WTA Singles Rankings likely to worsen this year
Maria Sharapova has never achieved a year-end No.1 WTA Singles Rankings. Unfortunately, she has the worst odds on the online sportsbooks in the US of achieving this in 2019. Her 2019 Top WTA Singles Rankings betting odds currently stand at +5000. Additionally, Sharapova is currently the world No.74 with 740 points. Furthermore, her progress so far this year also makes her an unfavorable option to wager on 1xBET Sportsbook:
- WTA Shenzhen Open (Quarterfinals Loss)
- Australian Open (Round 16 Loss)
- St. Petersburg Ladies’ Trophy (Round 16 Loss)
- Mallorca Open (Round 16 Loss)
- Wimbledon (Round 128 Loss)
According to our 2019 Top WTA Singles Rankings betting predictions, Sharapova won’t better her 29th 2018 WTA Singles Ranking this year. However, with several tournaments left this year, a top 60 WTA Singles Ranking would be an ideal result for Maria Sharapova.
