With the grass court season in the rear view mirror and the US Open Series on the horizon, the 2018 WTA Tour is heading towards the home straight.
And while the world’s finest tennis players have been battling it out on the court, fans have been testing their tennis expertise in the Porsche Race to Singapore Challenge: the inaugural WTA fantasy tennis season.
The first two swings are now in the books, but Swing III offers the chance to win exclusive signed WTA memorabilia and WTA Finals merch—and a video call with the winner of the 2018 BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global.
Play the game (for free!)
Those who have already put their name on the Porsche Race to Singapore Challenge leaderboard will know that the game is divided into two parts:
- The Season Challenge, where you select the eight players you believe will qualify for the 2018 WTA Finals. Sounds easy right?
However, you must lock in your player to start earning points. With qualifications looming, it is important to remember that you cannot pick a player once she has qualified. Make your picks and lock them in now!
[You can pick your eight players at any time, but they only start earning points when you ‘lock them in’]
- The Tournament Challenge (now entering its third swing), where you pick six players at select Premier level WTA and Grand Slam events throughout the season.
[Pick four starters and two alternates for each event in the Tournament Challenge]
For those who have yet to sign up for free, the good news is that it’s not too late to enter either challenge.
And the even better news is that current players and newcomers can win some fantastic prizes as the Tournament Challenge enters its third swing!
Fantasy players will be granted a fresh chance for glory as Swing III begins at the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic. It will then continue for a further eight tournaments: the Rogers Cup, the Western & Southern Open, the Connecticut Open, the US Open, the Toray Pan Pacific Open, the Wuhan Open, the China Open and the VTB Kremlin Cup.
The fantasy player to rack up the most points with their picks in Swing III will win an exclusive WTA Finals Prize Pack:
- A jumbo ball signed by all eight singles players who qualify for the WTA Finals
- A tennis racket signed by the 2018 WTA Finals Champion
- WTA Finals merchandise
- A video call with the WTA Finals Champion
Aspiring to be the best until the very end? The overall winner of both the Tournament Challenge (all three swings) and the Season Challenge will win a once-in-a-lifetime VIP trip to the 2019 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart, Germany.
New game features
It’s now easier than ever to track your progress in the Porsche Race to Singapore Challenge, as the game now features the options of seeing the leaders from each individual swing.
Plus, the all-new Grand Prize leaderboard. The Grand Prize leaderboard combines your Tournament Challenge points and your projected Season Challenge points to show your overall success in the season.
WTA Fantasy Tennis has also undergone several additional improvements—there are now, for example, in-game stats to help you pick your four starters and two alternates for each tournament.
