The absence of Serena Williams may have robbed the season-ending WTA Finals of a blockbuster showdown with Angelique Kerber, but the great American's withdrawal only means more accolades for the world number one from Germany after her breakout year.While Williams has won the tournament five times, Kerber has only qualified twice before, in 2012 and 2013, bowing out in the round-robin phase each time, giving her added incentive to cap her year by winning the October 30 final.Muguruza had her own breakout year in 2015, reaching the Wimbledon final then the semis in her first appearance at the WTA Finals.This year, the 23-year-old went one better, claiming her first major when she upset Williams in the French Open final.
