Who Will Win The WTA Finals? Barty Poised for Year-End Number 1

We are all set for the WTA finals in Shenzen.  After a 5-year run in Singapore, the tournament moves where all WTA tournaments are headed to these days – China.

Will Naomi Osaka find the form that won her the Australian Open?  Will Bianca Andreescu continue her hot run that won her the US Open?  With 4 players winning 4 grand slams, we have a tournament so open that any of the eight players could win it.

The last four winner of this year-end tournament are Agnieszka Radwanska, Dominika Cibulkova, Caroline Wozniacki and Evitolina Svitolina.  So don’t be surprised if Belinda Bencic or Karolina Pliskova win it this year.

The prize money for the tournament is$14 million with the winner taking home $3.45 million.
