The 2018 season is coming to a close, and what a season it has been, with a massive amount of change in the tennis rankings – just ask Andy Murray.
In many ways, 2018 has been the story of comebacks. Novak Djokovic has returned to the top and his brilliant best. Serena Williams has battled back to two Grand Slam finals despite just returning from child-birth.

Here, we take a look at those in most need of a strong 2019, with Murray among some very strong company among the ATP Tour stars looking to climb the rankings, and Maria Sharapova the biggest name WTA Tour star on the list.
