Tennis fans, this one’s for you. The Women’s Tennis Association’s (WTA) premier tournament is here once again to serve up a ruckus. Serena Williams may not be present this time, but the 2017 BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore is still going to be loads of fun to watch.
Taking place from 22 to 29 October at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, the tournament will feature a clash of tennis titans; only the top eight players and top eight double teams will compete in Singapore to vie for the crown and be named a champion.
Not surprisingly, the usual suspects will be present. Current world number one in singles, Simona Halep, will arrive in town ready to swing into action.
Karolina Pliskova, Caroline Wozniacki, and Venus Williams are some of the other players primed to ascend the championship throne.
Throughout the tournament, there will also be a Fan Village within the Singapore Sports Hub that’s open to the public, where fans can engage in tennis-related activities at the booths set up. You may even get a chance to meet your favourite tennis stars!
With a whopping prize money of US$7 million, I wish I was the dude with a white polo tee and shorts down at the court. But these girls do it a whole lot better. A lot better.
