The season ending championships are edging closer on both the WTA tour and the ATP tour. The top 8 on the WTA tour will head to Singapore and on the ATP the O2 in London awaits but some high profile names will be missing.
There will be no Sharapova, Murray, Serena, Djokovic, Vika, Wawrinka, Petra and Nishikori to name just a handful of players missing for various number of reasons but no matter what they are up to right now all roads will lead and most likely end up in Melbourne.
Some of them will have to rely on wildcards most likely to play in Melbourne but for others a lower ranking will see them potentially seeded outside top 15 which sets up a number of potential early meeting against another top player.
At this time the only players we are unsure of seeing in Melbourne are Vika, Serena and Kei but i would be surprised if just one of them doesn’t make it to the first major of 2018.
Next year is still a few months away but it is shaping up to be an exciting year on the tour, you have the comebacks and the rising stars battling it out for what is set to be an incredible year beginning down under!
