Let’s get some of the best players to watch for this week in Eastbourne on !

Players to Watch For

Elena Rybakina - Dusting herself off for the Grass

Elena Rybakina ’s favorite time of the year is now, and she has an opportunity to regain her points from the Wimbledon Championship that she was not even awarded.

Starting off with Eastbourne this week, Rybakina is a heavy favourite for serious damage on this surface.

Her tall frame and ability to rock serves and hit both backhand and forehand through the court is seriously dangerous and there are next to no others who will be able to control the power.

Rybakina is one of the most soft-spoken players on tour, but she has a huge game and an ability to create some advantageous positions for herself.

She will be using this week to make a charge at Wimbledon next week.

Ons Jabeur - Looking forward to the Pace

Ons Jabeur has a vastly powerful game on the grass courts with a ton of variety, and she is definitely a threat for a title not only here, but at Wimbledon.

Making the finals of the slam last year and not clinching it has faced her laurels twice, and she does not want to make the same mistake this time around.

Jabeur is lethal with her sudden increase of pace on both wings and the ability to use both the slice and dropshot to gain points and put opponents on the backfoot immediately.

Petra Kvitova - Two-time winner?

Petra Kvitova won WTA Berlin last week in emphatic fashion and is looking to return to her old form.

Kvitova is one of the most dangerous players in these conditions, and she is one of the players with the best chances in such a stacked field this week at Eastbourne.

Lefty serve and forehand domination is the name of the game for her, and she will look to employ some of the same tactics she used last week in Germany.
