Maria Sharapova stands out as the main threat in the white group at this year’s TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships, and many pundits consider her the favourite to win the competition. That said, she’s only recently returned from an ankle injury, and she might struggle to go the distance. Sharapova’s opponents in the white group will be Victoria Azarenka, Li Na and Samantha Stosur.

Azarenka has never previously gotten past the round robin stage at the WTA Championships, but she’s had a consistent and impressive season, and it could be third time lucky for the Belarusian this year. She won the WTA Luxembourg Open last week, so form shouldn’t be an issue.

Na hasn’t really stood out since the French Open, but she’s demonstrated this season that she has the ability to perform at the crucial points in the season. She’s not the favourite here, but Na is capable of beating anyone on her day.

Stosur won the U.S Open this year, despite not winning any other titles. Like Na, she has what it takes to upset the odds, but she’ll need to work hard to emerge from the group.
