Sarah Asahina has had a string of Grand Slam victories in the past year and has the best track record of all the leading contenders.
The one with the strongest track record going into Budapest is Japan's Sarah Asahina, winner of the 2016 Tokyo Grand Slam, 2017 Paris Grand Slam and 2017 Ekaterinaburg Grand Slam.

China's World Champion Yu Song has competed only once since Rio 2016 and that was at the 2016 Qingdao Grand Prix which she won. But she is still certainly someone to contend with.

Other players to watch out for are Olympic Champion Emilie Andeole of France and rising star Maryna Slutskaya of Belarus.
