March 2015 WTA Rising Star Of The Month Finalists:
Karolina Pliskova: February's WTA Rising Star of the Month backed up last month's success, which saw the Czech make her first ever WTA Premier 5 final in Dubai. Karolina Pliskova, who turned 23 during Indian Wells, reached the round of 16 before falling to eventual champion Simona Halep. Along the way, she defeated fellow WTA Rising Star Garbiñe Muguruza in straight sets. Pliskova went on to make her first WTA Premier Mandatory quarterfinal in Miami. Following Miami, Pliskova rose to a career-high ranking of World No.12. Even more impressively, she stands fifth on the Road To Singapore leaderboard.
Belinda Bencic: The Swiss turned 18 just one day before the start of Indian Wells, and the milestone birthday appears to have galvanized her season. She logged her first career Top 5 win in Indian Wells when she defeated Caroline Wozniacki in straight sets, making it all the way to the round of 16 before losing to the eventual finalist, Jelena Jankovic. Bencic didn't let up in Miami, making her first career back-to-back WTA Premier Mandatory round of 16 appearances before losing to fellow WTA Rising Star of the Month nominee Sloane Stephens.
Sloane Stephens: Stephens rounds out this month's nominees by putting a disappointing start of the 2015 season firmly behind her and hitting the ground running in Indian Wells and Miami. The American defeated Angelique Kerber and Svetlana Kuznetsova in Indian Wells, making it as far as the round of 16, where she lost to World No.1 Serena Williams. At the Miami Open, she achieved her best result in Key Biscayne by reaching the quarterfinals, beating fellow WTA Rising Stars Madison Keys and Belinda Bencic.
