WTA Finals moved from Shenzhen to Guadalajara

The season-ending WTA Finals will be held in Guadalajara, Mexico, instead of Shenzhen, south China, this year and will begin on November 8, the WTA Tour said on Monday.

The WTA Finals, contested by the world’s top eight singles players and eight doubles teams, was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In July, the WTA removed the Asian swing of tournaments from its calendar for a second successive year due to the pandemic, with only the WTA Finals’ fate uncertain. “We are excited to bring our showpiece tournament to the exciting and vibrant city of Guadalajara in this unique year,” WTA CEO Steve Simon said in a statement. The WTA Finals is set to return to Shenzhen from 2022 and the Guangdong Province city will host it until 2030. The annual showpiece event had a prize purse of US$14 million in 2019 when it was played in Shenzhen for the first time after ending a five-year run in Singapore.
