2019 WTA Finals

27 Oct 2019 - 3 Nov 2019

The WTA Finals or the BNP Paribas WTA Finals is an annual professional’s women tennis tournament that is played at the end of the WTA Tour season. The WTA Finals is played out between the top-ranked women players at the end of every calendar year.


It is considered the most prestigious tournament of the WTA after the four Grand Slams. Similar to it's reputation, it also has the highest prize money and points distribution after the four major titles. The tournament was founded in 1972, and the first edition was won by Chris Evert.


The tournament is played between eight players in the singles format, and eight teams in the doubles format. The eight contestants are placed in two groups where they face each other in round-robin format followed by semi-finals, while the doubles teams participate in a single elimination draw. The players are selected on the basis of the 53 WTA tournaments and the four major Grand Slam titles played throughout the year.


There is a leaderboard called the Porsche Race to Singapore which keeps the tabs on every individual’s ranking points. Despite eight players qualifying for the WTA Finals singles, the eighth spot is not a guaranteed place and is deemed optional by the WTA rules. The selection of the eight doubles team is a bit different, as each team’s best eleven performances in the year are taken into account. All the eight spots in doubles are guaranteed, unlike the singles.


The 2019 WTA World Tour Finals will be played from 21st October 2019 to 23rd November 2019

This year the tournament will be held at the Shenzen, China.
