The 3-period Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber will face challenging contenders which specifically involves eight extra people of the WTA Top 10, led by reigning US and Australian Open winner and world No .1 Naomi Osaka..

The US based player has enjoyed a magnificient climb to the big time as a result of moving from 72 in the world to number 1 in the past 12 months and she shall be taking part in Dubai after her remarkable success at the AO 2019.

Shifting ratings with Doha this year, Dubai has the leading prize funds from all the WTA Premier 5 events.

One more extremely expected return in Dubai is the one of Petra Kvitova. Following Australian Open, Petra headed to St. Petersburg where she dropped to Donna Vekic in the last eight and she will require some well-deserved break prior to returning to action in Dubai, contesting against the stellar field of players and attempting to get the title six years after obtaining victory in the 1st.

Considering the no 2 seed, Kvitova might possibly deal with Osaka in the last stage if both players win all their previous matches, we can have a remake from the Australian Open 2019 final in Dubai.

Petra Kvitova did not manage to guard her St Petersburg title in Russia, but this really is in some way understandable as she was drained immediately after participating in the final in Melbourne. On the flip side, Osaka is arriving in after spending a break due to an injury.
