In recent years, the world of professional tennis has been dominated by only a few names, and we know them all. But as time passes, these big names will fade and will be replaced by new rising stars. This year, there were a few players that made a splash in tournaments around the world, such as the Australian Open, Wimbledon, and US Open. If you are a fan of tennis, then these are the names you should watch out for as the potential big league players of the next decade.

Bianca Andreescu
This 19-year-old tennis player is the first Canadian to win the Rogers Cup. Before this tournament, she missed her chance in the French Open because of a shoulder injury. Her win in Toronto was a lucky break because then front runner Serena Williams could not finish the tournament because of back pain. When she won her first tour title in March, NetBet tennis betting enthusiasts put her on the radar. With her solid baseline technique, discipline, and top-notch movement, there is no doubt that her current ranking as 15th in the world will likely continue to rise in the years to come.

Daniil Medvedev
Medvedev is currently ranked as the 5th best tennis player in the world. His reputation as a formidable player was seen when he won against Novak Djokovic during the Cincinnati Masters. Goffin, another impressive tennis player, commended Medvedev’s backcourt game, saying he does not miss and could quite become another contender for a grand slam title.

Maria Sakkari
This player from Greece has shown much improvement this year. She is serving more consistently, and her groundstrokes now have more margin and topspin. At first, she played with nothing but power. But with the help of her coach and trainer, she learned to bridle her power for good. Her errors have also decreased, and her strength now wears down her opponents instead of her. Indeed she is one to watch if she continues to perform at the top of her game for years to come. She is currently 30th when the US Open started. But if she plays in top condition, she will indeed become a tough one to beat.

Taylor Fritz
Since April of this year, Fritz has slowly climbed 40 places in the world rankings. When the US Open began, he was on the 26th spot. After winning his first title in England, he has competed in Mexico and Atlanta and finished in the finals. He is consistently showing improvement in his game and will be a formidable tennis competitor with his powerful serve and baseline game. He is currently the second-highest-ranking American player.

Jennifer Brady
Brady’s season in the hardcourt has been solid so far with consecutive qualifying finishes in Cincinnati and Toronto. Currently ranked 65th, Brady has shown significant improvement with her powerful serves, transitions, and short ball attacks. She is considered resourceful and gritty and shows just how much depth there is in women’s tennis. Her aggressive approach will undoubtedly pose a threat to some of the most seeded tennis players today.
