Along with concluding an exciting few days of match play that saw Monica Puig take the inaugural WTA Rising Stars Invitational's title, the four WTA Rising Stars in Singapore are also tirelessly packing in media appearances, kids clinics, local activities and promotional events. One of these included a visit to Facebook's office in downtown Singapore to chat social media and have some fun.
Fan voting via social media is how the four WTA Rising Stars made it to Singapore in the first place. Their campaigns and social pleas encouraged fans, sponsors, partners and media to vote them into the winning Top 2 for Rest of World (Monica Puig and Shelby Rogers) and Top 2 for Asia-Pacific (Zheng Saisai and Zarina Diyas).
The trip to Facebook Singapore headquarters started with a social media discussion and a tour of the office. Following this, the young WTA stars participated in a fan Q&A, a video interview, a competitive game of foosball, then a demo of Oculus, a virtual reality tool Facebook acquired earlier this year.
