The last time a woman won 2 grand slams in the same year was back in 2016. It wasn't Serena Williams, either. It was Angelique Kerber. It says a lot about the quality of the WTA field and just how competitive it will be in 2020. In fact, there have been 10 different women winners in the last 12 grand slams!

Of course, 2020 is a particularly exciting year for Australians, with Ashleigh Barty starting the year ranked number 1 in women's tennis rankings. But she is just one of a number of talented young stars on the rise, even as veterans like Serena Williams, Kerber, Kvitova and Halep remain constant title threats.

Of the new brigade, Naomi Osaka already has two slams under her belt and she has only just turned 22. Bianca Andreescu just got her first grand slam title at 19. While Belinda Bencic (22) and Elina Svitolina (25) are also entrenched in the top 10.

What will happen in 2020? Will this be the year that another four new names etch their legacy onto the most coveted trophies? Will Ashleigh Barty end the year where it started at the top of the women's tennis rankings? Will Serena Williams manage to find that elusive 24th slam and end her 3-year drought.

Below you will find the Top 100 WTA women's tennis rankings ahead of the Australian Open in 2020. Thankfully you can watch every major WTA event live in Australia, predominantly through Kayo Sports.
