‘Fans are having fun’ with women’s tennis in 2023Eurosport pundits Laura Robson and Barbara Schett have expressed their excitement about how women’s tennis is positioned ahead of the rest of the 2023 season after the Open from Australia.
“I think the fans have a good female side,” Robson said after the conclusion of the Australian Open.
“When you look at the contrast and styles of play with Iga, Sabalenka, Jabeur… the list goes on.

“Even someone like Pegula, where I thought that might be her chance. She’s also among the best players, and I love that they all push each other.
“Everyone thinks they have a very good chance. It will be a different challenge for Swiatek to defend all those points she scored in 2022. I can’t wait to see how it goes.”
“The fans have it good!” – Robson very enthusiastic for women’s tennis in 2023
Schett was very clear that women’s tennis is “all open” and hinted that the domination fans seen by Swiatek in 2022 “could end up” with so many other players desperate to challenge.
“What can people expect from the women’s circuit? Everything is open,” she told Eurosport.
“Remember, Swiatek dominated the whole WTA Tour, but this year I think it’s going to be very different.
“Of course Iga will be there, but there will also be Sabalenka, Rybakina, Pegula… it’s going to be very exciting and we’re going to see a lot of different Grand Slam finals. This Swiatek dominance alone could end.”
