About WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai

The WTA unveiled the Elite Trophy Zhuhai tournament in January 2015 as a brand new singles and doubles event set to take place following all of the action at the WTA Finals each year. The WTA Elite trophy provides an alternative for those top ranked players that just miss out on qualification into the Shenzhen championships.

Staged at the custom designed Zhuhai Hengqin International Tennis Centre, the WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai marks the 13th tournament to be played in Asia, as tennis continues to grow substantially in the region. The Tour Championships event offers a total prize money of $2,349,363, with the winner to also take away 700 rankings points. 

Similar to the WTA Finals, players will compete in round robin format - however there are four groups of three, with the winner of each group advancing through to the semi-finals. Venus Williams won the first edition in 2015, while Petra Kvitova defeated Elina Svitolina to claim the 2016 title. Julia Goerges won the tournament in 2017 and went on to break into the top 10 the next year, while Ashleigh Barty's triumph in Zhuhai in 2018 presaged her tremendous 2019 season, which saw her win a maiden Grand Slam title at the French Open and become world no. 1, underlining Zhuhai's growing reputation as a springboard for success.
