Beatriz Haddad Maia is a two-time doubles champion on the WTA tour, but the 21-year-old is a player to watch in singles. She has already reached one tour final, the Korean Open, in 2017. While she would lose that match to the top-seeded Jelena Ostapenko, Haddad Maia became the first Brazilian to reach a final in a non-clay event since 1983.
Haddad Maia's style of play is one that can best be described as relentless. The lefty likes to attack, especially with her serve and forehand. She also likes to make her way to the net, where she has the size to confound her opponents parked at the baseline.
It takes a confident person to play the way Haddad Maia does, and it's only fitting that she has some serious belief in her own ability. The 21-year-old has stated that she wants to be a world No. 1 one day, and she dreams of lifting singles trophies at Grand Slams.
