At 30, Danielle Collins is having a breakthrough year on tour. She snagged the biggest title of her career in Miami this March, then immediately clinched the Charleston crown—becoming the first to win both back-to-back since Serena Williams in 2013. Collins rode a stunning 15-match win streak, toppling top-10 players like Ons Jabeur, Maria Sakkari, and Elena Rybakina. She also pushed reigning major champions Iga Swiatek and Aryna Sabalenka to their limits, marking her as a formidable force this season.

The Summer Olympics take place Fri, Jul 26, 2024 through Sun, Aug 11, 2024.
