Our prediction for the winner of the WTA Finals 2023
No one player has dominated the WTA Tour this year. The four Grand Slams were all won by different players. Aryna Sabalenka won the Australian Open, Roland Garros was won by Iga Swiatek, the Wimbledon champion was Marketa Vondrousova) with Coco Gauff becoming US Open champion. All bar Swiatek were winning their first Grand Slam title. We anticipate these WTA Tour Finals to be very open.
Who'll win this tournament? It's a very open one and one factor to consider is there's also a doubles event this week. Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula are teamed up in that and expected to go well as they are the top seeds. That will give them a very busy schedule indeed. That may well hinder their singles chances and we go for Iga Swiatek to win this title.
The eight players taking part this year are:
- Bacalar Group: Aryna Sabalenka, Elena Rybakina, Jessica Pegula, Maria Sakkari
- Chetumal Group: Iga Swiatek, Coco Gauff, Ons Jabeur, Marketa Vondrousova
Current odds to win the title
- Iga Swiatek, odds of 2.50
- Jessica Pegula, odds of 4.33
- Aryna Sabalenka, odds of 5.50
- Coco Gauff, odds of 6.50
- Elena Rybakina, odds of 7.50
- Ons Jabeur, odds of 15.00

Our tips for betting on the WTA Finals 2023 tournament
The WTA Finals 2023 tournament is full of good odds to make your tennis bet on this last major singles tournament of the season. But before you start making your predictions, there are a few tips to follow to avoid mistakes and maximize your chances of winning, as well as advice from our experts. And maybe next year you'll go to Cancun thanks to your tennis predictions!
Analyze the players' current form
It's not enough to look at the rankings to decide which players to bet on. Take the time to analyze the players' recent results and their current form. Some players got off to a good start before taking a step back, while others started timidly before finishing with a bang. Form will be a decisive factor in the future winner's victory, so don't rush!
A fast surface
The surface is always an important factor in women's tennis, with some players preferring fast surfaces and others feeling more comfortable on slower ones. For this WTA Finals 2023 tournament in Cancun, it is on hard court that the 8 best players of the season will compete during this week in Mexico. For their part, Aryna Sabalenka and Coco Gauff, winners in Australia and Flushing Meadows, have shown great skill on hard courts. Iga Swiatek is better on clay but has won several top hard court tournaments. Before making your WTA Finals 2023 prediction, take everything into account.
View the history of confrontations
Another very important element to analyze before making your tennis bet is the history of encounters between each player. Even the best players in the world can have their pet peeve in the course of their career. Iga Swiatek, for example, won 8 of her 9 matches against Coco Gauff, but the American's only victory was on a hard court. Psychological advantage is paramount in sport and some female players can get stuck into the game of some players. Don't be afraid to make a tennis prediction on a lower-ranked player if head-to-head matches have gone in her favor.Register now!
Find out about the history of the tournament
The 2023 WTA Finals will be played over the course of a week, which could mean a total of 5 matches in 7 days. Some female tennis players will have no problem coping with such a tough schedule, others may find it difficult to repeat the effort in such a short space of time. Looking at the record, none of the players present this season has already won the WTA Finals, and whatever the result, a new name will be added to the list. Last season's finalist, world No. 1 Aryna Sabalenka, has proven that she can put in a string of matches and that she is physically up to the task. But one thing's for sure: surprises are often the order of the day at the WTA Finals!
What's at stake in the WTA rankings
As a spectator and bettor, it's logical to think about the predictions you could make throughout the week of the 2023 WTA Finals, but you mustn't forget what's at stake for the players in Cancun. With up to 1,500 points up for grabs if they win the tournament without losing a single match in the first round, or 500 points if they have a tougher time of it, these points could enable some of the participants to move up in the final rankings for the 2023 season. For example, Iga Swiatek, currently runner-up to Aryna Sabalenka in the WTA rankings, could regain the world number 1 spot with a perfect run in Mexico. Motivation for the Pole could increase tenfold, so keep that in mind when making your tennis predictions.
Statistics you need to know for your predictions
Each major tournament has its own statistics to help you target your WTA Finals prediction. Here are the key figures from the last edition, played in November 2022:
