27.12.2014 - The 26 year old from Las Palmas was voted the best performer of 2014 along with colleague Garbiñe Muguruza, who has rocketed up the rankings this year, finishing in 20th place.  Suárez enjoyed one of her most consistent years to date, reaching a semi-final in Katowice and the quarters in Sydney, Dubai, Florianapolis, Stuttgart, Rome, Montreal and Tokyo.  She also claimed some notable scalps along the way, including that of Maria Sharapova.  The country’s top two players teamed up experimentally as a doubles pair in 2014 and won a tournament in the United States, and reached two big finals as well as the semi-finals of the French Open.
