WTA Adelaide players 2020

South Australia plays host to a WTA tournament for the first time in 2020, with an outstanding field converging in Adelaide just one week before the start of the Australian Open.

Leading the charge is Australian star and World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty, who returns down under for the first time on the WTA Tour since her incredible 2019 season, which saw her win her maiden Grand Slam at the French Open, along with claiming more titles in Miami, Birmingham and the WTA Finals Shenzhen.

Barty laid the foundation for her extraordinary 2019 by reaching the final in Sydney last year and the quarter-finals of the Australian Open, but she will be out to get her hands on a trophy in her come country in 2020, especially after missing out on the Fed Cup in heartbreaking fashion in Perth at the end of 2019.

She will have to be operating at the peak of her powers to take home the Adelaide silverware, with a number of top players joining Barty in the draw, including top 10 stars Simona Halep and Petra Kvitova.

Halep is no stranger to Adelaide having spent some time in the city with coach Darren Cahill, who grew up in South Australia, while Kvitova will be aiming to produce the sort of tennis she did at this time last year, defeating Barty for the Sydney title before advancing to the Australian Open final, where it took an on-fire Naomi Osaka to stop her.

Johanna Konta, who had a resurgent 2019, also has close ties to Australia - she was born in Sydney and made her first Grand Slam semi-final at the Australian Open. Can the Brit find the sort of tennis that propelled her into the top five a couple of years ago in Adelaide?

Angelique Kerber is also someone looking to recapture her best tennis after a disappointing 2019 - but the German has had success in Australia before, winning the Australian Open in sensational fashion in 2016.

Throw in rising stars Sofia Kenin and Dayana Yastremska, along with former U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens, and the stage is set for a thrilling first edition of the Adelaide International, live from January 12-18.

About WTA Adelaide

The Adelaide International returns to the tennis calendar from 2020 after the tournament was moved to Brisbane for the last decade.

The South Australian capital will host a combined ATP and WTA tournament the week before the Australian Open, with players getting one last chance to finalise their preparations ahead of the first Grand Slam of the season.

Adelaide first played host to an ATP tennis tournament in 1938, but this will be the first time the city stages a WTA event, with some of the very best players in the world heading to the city of churches for the inaugural tournament in 2020, including Ashleigh Barty, Simona Halep and Petra Kvitova.

The tournament will be played on hardcourts at Memorial Drive, which has undergone a $11 million redevelopment, including a new canopy roof over centre court, ahead of the 2020 tournament.

Players will compete for $1,157,282 AUD in prize money, with 470 ranking points on offer for the champion.
