Thailand, India, Hong Kong, Chinese Taipei and Laos are the latest countries to announce who will represent them in the event to be held in conjunction with the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global.
For Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina, victory at the US Open sealed a spot at the WTA Finals. However, failure for some of the other leading doubles teams in New York has complicated the qualification picture somewhat.
In April, SC Global Developments signed a five-year contract as presenting sponsor of the WTA Finals. As part of the deal it also agreed to run a new community program to widen interest in tennis and increase grassroots participation.
