of Germany will be looking to shine at the end of the season and perhaps beat some of the world’s best players as the year draws to a close.
This year Serena Williams of the USA was the world number 1 right up until last week, the American won her 5th Australian Open title in Melbourne at the start of the year when she beat the Belgian former world number 1 Justine Henin in 3 tight sets.
Serena went on to win Wimbledon this summer for the 4th time in her career when she beat the Russian Vera Zvonareva in the final in straight sets.
A freak injury however forced Serena to pull out of the US Open in Flushing Meadows New York last month and Kim Clijsters of Belgium went on to win the title for the 3rd time in her career.
Serena has previously won the US Open 3 times.
