The 2020 season was a rollercoaster of uncertainty, but there were a handful of names that managed to make the most of it. On Tuesday, the WTA revealed the 2020 player and coach awards. They are voted on by members of the International media using Qualtrics.
Below are the 2020 winners:
WTA Player of the Year: Sofia Kenin
The American finished the year off by achieving a career-high ranking of world No. 4, and she managed to do this by reaching multiple Grand Slam finals in 2020. The 22-year-old defeated former world No. 1 Garbine Muguruza in the Australian Open final to capture her maiden major title. She would then go on to win Lyon before the tours shut down in March.
