Few British players have had more significant 2023 seasons than Katie Boulter, who has skyrocketed up the world rankings in the last year, claiming her maiden WTA title in the process.
Set to finish the year as British number one for the first time, Boulter will be eager to build on this year's success in 2024.
Katie Boulter has yet to claim a Grand Slam title but this season was her best yet when it came to the majors.
The Leicester-born star reached the third round of both Wimbledon and the US Open in 2023, losing out to Elena Rybakina and Peyton Stearns respectively.
Before this season, Boulter had reached that stage of a Grand Slam only once - at Wimbledon in 2022 - while she reached the second round of the Australian Open back in 2019.
The French Open remains her weakest major with Boulter yet to make it beyond the second batch of qualifiers in Paris.
A Grand Slam may still be some way off Boulter's thinking but the British talent at least picked up her first ever WTA title this season.
Back in June as part of her preparations for Wimbledon, Boulter came out on top in the Nottingham Open final, beating compatriot and good friend Jodie Burrage 6-3 6-3 to take the title.
It was the first all-British WTA Final since Sue Barker and Virginia Wade locked horns in San Francisco in 1977 and Boulter made the most of the opportunity.
It was Boulter's first WTA Final appearance and she will be hoping there is more where that came from in 2024.
Boulter's midsummer success in Nottingham moved her up to 77th in the WTA rankings, but she was not done there and managed to ascend to 50th spot in September this year.
That came after the Briton reached the third round of the US Open in what was her first ever appearance in the main draw and she has managed to stay there or thereabouts since, having finished the season in 56th spot.
Still finding her feet on the WTA Tour, Boulter's career prize money stands at a modest $1,746,629, although a significant amount of that - $587,724 - was earned in 2023.
For her sole single title won in Nottingham back in June, Boulter took home the lion's share of the $259,303 prize pot.
Boulter may still be looking to make her mark but she is not in the infancy of her career, having turned 27 back in August.
She first showed signs of promise when winning the Lemon Bowl in Rome back in 2008 aged just 11, and 10 years later she really came into her own, winning singles titles in Obidos, Portugal and Fukuoka, Japan.
It was in the Midlands where Boulter attracted attention on the WTA Tour this season, winning her first title, and it is also where she comes from.
The 27-year-old was born in Woodhouse Eaves in Leicestershire as the second of two children to David and Susan.
Her mother, formerly Susan Gartshore, was a county-level tennis player who also represented Great Britain as a junior.
Yes, Boulter will be heading down under in early 2024 to compete in the season's first Grand Slam.
The British number one will be an outsider again in Melbourne but can draw confidence from her strong start to the 2023 season in Australia.
Boulter began last year by winning the W60 Canberra title and a lot has changed since then, so her minimum target in Melbourne will be to progress beyond the second round for the first time in her career.
