Who is playing the WTA Finals Singapore in 2018?


The eight most in-form players of 2018 take to the courts once more at the flagship WTA Tour event, the season-ending BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global live from Singapore from Sunday 21 October.

As always, the eight-woman field consists of the players who have amassed the most points during the calendar year and the WTA Finals Singapore brings the season to a stunning climax as the most in-form players battle for the title.

Surely the most intriguing question is whether five-time WTA Finals champion Serena Williams will become the first mother to feature in the singles field since Kim Clijsters won the title in 2010. Williams became the most successful Open Era Grand Slam player of all time when she won her twenty-third major title at the Australian Open in January 2017, but didn't play for the rest of the year and gave birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia in September. Expectations are sky-high for Williams's return to competition but will she be ready to battle for the biggest titles and secure her place in the WTA Finals Singapore field once more - and perhaps win her sixth title?

The 2018 WTA Finals Singapore might also see the return of defending champion Caroline Wozniacki, the two-time US Open runner-up who capped a tremendous season - one which saw her reach no fewer than eight WTA Tour finals - by capturing the biggest title of her career at the season-ending championships, having finished runner-up to Clijsters in 2010. 

Other former champions who will be hoping to make a return to the WTA Finals Singapore in 2018 include Maria Sharapova, the 2004 winner and runner-up in 2007 and 2012, who last appeared at the season-ending championships in 2015. Sharapova returned from her 15-month doping suspension for use of the prohibited substance meldonium in May 2017, and from being unranked managed to climb her way up to finish the season at world no. 59 despite playing just 22 matches and struggling with injuries - can the formidable Russian once more feature among the 'elite eight'?

Venus Williams, the only woman to reach multiple Grand Slam finals in 2017 and the runner-up to Wozniacki at the 2018 WTA Finals SIngapore, will be hoping to reprise her 2008 victory at the season-ending championships a decade later and 2011 victor Petra Kvitova will also be a strong contender to reclaim the title, having narrowly missed out on qualifying among the elite eight in 2017 despite missing the first five months of the season after suffering devastating knife wounds to her left hand the previous winter. Recent victors Agnieszka Radwanska and Dominika Cibulkova will also be hoping to return. 

Then there are those women who, in 2017, ascended to the top spot and featured at the WTA Finals Singapore and will be burning to return in 2018 - French Open and Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza, the powerful Spanish baseliner who will be aiming to qualify for the season-ending championships for the fourth straight year; current world no. 1 and Roland Garros finalist Simona Halep, runner-up to Serena Williams in 2014, who could well be making one of the 'elite eight' for the fifth straight year in 2018; and big-serving Czech Karolina Pliskova, the 'ace queen', who is a force to be reckoned with on hard courts all round the world.

That's without even mentioning the surprise Grand Slam winners of 2017 - Jelena Ostapenko, the explosive Latvian who qualified for the WTA Finals Singapore, and Sloane Stephens, the US Open winner who didn't - and the likes of Elina Svitolina and Caroline Garcia, two contrasting but rapidly improving players who could be a force to be reckoned with on the WTA Tour in 2018. 

We'll keep you updated on the Porsche Race to Singapore throughout this season as the best and brightest in women's tennis battle to qualify for the 2018 WTA Finals Singapore, live from Singapore from Sunday 21 October.

About the WTA Finals Singapore

The showcase event in women’s tennis and perhaps the fifth biggest tournament of the year, the WTA Finals Singapore brings together the best players of the season to compete against each other for the immense prize that is the season-ending championships.

Only the top eight women in the season qualify, with the standings determined not by rolling 52-week rankings but by the points compiled during the year to date thus far. Known as the ‘Race to Singapore’, these rankings provide an invaluable snapshot of which players are having the best year. Every woman on the WTA Tour wants to qualify and, as the season-ending event draws closer, the battles become fiercer, with duels for the last remaining spots often going down to the wire and adding an additional piquancy to the Asian and European events which follow the last Grand Slam of the year.

The eight women who qualify for the WTA Finals Singapore are drawn into two groups of four and compete in round-robin matches, with the top two players from each group reaching the semifinals. Then the slate is wiped clean as the top four compete in the semifinals and then the finals – which can lead to some unusual results, as we saw in 2015 when Agnieszka Radwanska won the WTA Finals Singapore despite having gone 1-2 in the group stages, when she defeated Garbine Muguruza and Petra Kvitova in the semifinals and final. The WTA Finals also features eight doubles teams competing in a similar format.

First played in 1972, the WTA Finals have been known by various names and played in different formats and cities since its inception, but its role as the climax of the WTA Tour season and one of its most prestigious and fiercely-sought prizes has not altered. Previous locations have included New York, Munich, Madrid, Qatar and Istanbul and 43 cities bid for the right to host the WTA Finals from 2014 onwards. Current prize money is $7,000,000 and the winner also lifts the Billie Jean King trophy, named for one of the most iconic athletes of all time.

Four-time champion Chris Evert was the first woman to triumph at the WTA Finals when she lifted the trophy in 1972, defeating Kerry Melville Reid in the final, although Evert was rapidly eclipsed by perpetual rival Martina Navratilova who still holds the record for most titles. Navratilova won the WTA Finals eight times between 1978 and 1986 and also finished runner-up four times in 1975, 1980, 1982 and 1989. Other multiple WTA Finals champions include five-time winner Steffi Graf, three-time champion Monica Seles and two-time champion Martina Hingis.

In recent years, Justine Henin (2006-7), Kim Clijsters (2002-3, 2009) and Amelie Mauresmo (2005) have all taken the WTA Finals title but no woman has been more successful than Serena Williams. The 23-time Grand Slam champion won the WTA Finals for the first time in 2001, took her second title eight years later in 2009 and went on to win a trio of titles in 2012-14. Williams hasn't played the event since, withdrawing in 2015 and 2016 due to injury and missing the WTA Finals in 2017 after giving birth to her daughter.

Other active WTA Finals champions include 2004 winner Maria Sharapova, who also finished runner-up in 2007 and 2012; 2008 champion Venus Williams; 2011 victor Petra Kvitova, who also finished runner-up in 2015 to Radwanska; and 2016 champion Dominika Cibulkova, who crowned a remarkable comeback from injury by defeating Australian Open and Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber in the Singapore final. The 2017 WTA Finals Singapore saw Caroline Wozniacki, the former world no. 1 and two-time US Open runner-up, cap a season which saw her reach a remarkable eight WTA Tour finals by defeating Simona Halep, Karolina Pliskova and Venus Williams to claim the biggest title of her career.

The 2018 WTA Finals Singapore will be played from 21-18 October 2018.
