In the Doubles competition, the teams will play in a straight knockout format through the Final.
As players compete to qualify through a series of tournaments throughout the year, it is impossible to predict when particular players will play in the tournament. The “Road to Singapore” leaderboard on the WTA Finals website will serve as the best and most useful guide for the frontrunners.
When your favourite players take to the courts, will be known only after the Draw is made just before competition commences in October. However, the first five days of the competition (23-27 October) will definitely see all players in the Singles competition in action. With so many top players playing against one another in Round Robin format during the opening round of matches, every session will feel like a Grand Slam final!
