Jaimee may only be 17 years old, but she’s definitely a contender that everyone should watch out for. She will be making her grand slam debut today at the Australian Open, and she is hoping that this will be the start of her professional tennis career. Jaimee may have lost to her good friend Destanee Aiava during the Grand Slam draw, but this didn’t stop her from pursuing her lifelong dream of becoming a professional tennis player. She will be playing against US veteran Anna Tatishvili.


Tommy Haas

This German stud has been playing in the Australian Open since 1999, and is a veteran when it comes to playing in the court. He is, undeniably, a crowd favorite, as he is the oldest man to make it to the Australian Open draw (he is currently 38 years old). This will be the first time he will make an appearance in the Australian Open since 2014.


Katerina Siniakova

Katerina is a tennis star waiting to happen. This Czech 20-year old jumped from being in the top 100 to the top 50 players in 2016. She defeated Simona Halep in just the second round at Shenzhen. Her moves are so swift yet might, and this girl is a contender that other tennis players must keep their eyes on.


Camila Giorgi

This girl hits the tennis ball with strength and agility. Camila is one of the hardest ball-hitters in the industry, which is what makes her a strong contender. She won her first title in s’Hertogenbosch in 2015, and has five WTA appearances to her name. Camila reached the semi-finals of her first event of 2017 in Shenzhen.


Jerzy Janowicz

Jerzy injured his left knee, which threatened his professional tennis career. This, however, did not prevent the world’s former number 14 best tennis player in the world to stop following his dreams. He is back and set to play in the Australian Open this year to get his ranking back on top. He proved that he is, indeed, one of the best by outgunning Andy Murray in the 2012 Paris masters. Watch this guy during the Australian Open tournament and you will surely be entertained.
