Coco Gauff is set for a really big year next year, and according to former ATP player Andy Roddick, she will be gunning to number one in the rankings on the WTA Tour.

Iga Swiatek has spent much of this year as the world number one player, even though Aryna Sabalenka dethroned her for a while. The WTA Finals triumph of the Polish player returned her to number one, but next year’s battle will be quite interesting.

There is Swiatek, who will be in the mix. Sabalenka should be good. Rybakina and, of course, Gauff could do some damage. According to former player Andy Roddick, Gauff is the player to watch, especially her matchup with Swiatek. He laid out his view of the situation in his most recent column for Betway.

It was a bit of a two-person race with Iga Swiatek and Aryna Sabalenka this year so, on the women’s side, it’s all about who can push the leaders. One of the interesting storylines is going to be whether Coco Gauff can make a run at the No.1 ranking. I love Coco. You’d be looking for her to work on the serve a little bit this off-season. She has a big arm, so it’s about getting some more margin there.

Gauff is certainly a very good candidate to make a run because she is simply that good. She can play well on all surfaces and has been very healthy throughout her career.

She needs to improve some things like the serve, as Roddick mentioned, but her US Open run certainly proved that she has what it takes to battle the best.

Whether she actually steps up even more and secures that number-one rank remains to be seen. She’s already started working towards next year, which shows how serious and ambitious it is. That’s half the battle, and now it’s just about bringing it to the courts.
