Tennis: Depth in women’s game no surprise for top players

The WTA circuit has seen only one repeat winner in 13 tournaments this year and for Japan’s Naomi Osaka, who is fast emerging as the next dominant force in women’s tennis, the results underline the depth of talent on the Tour. Russian Daria Kasatkina, who bagged the Phillip Island Trophy in Melbourne last month, became the first two-time winner on the Tour this year on Sunday after the 23-year-old’s triumph in the St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy final. While Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic have dominated the men’s game, women’s tennis has been searching for a successor to Serena Williams since the 23-times major winner became a mother in 2017.
