  New Season Ending Tourney for 2015-2019

    (October 8, 2014) "The WTA Elite Trophy, a brand new singles and doubles event offering $2.15 million in prize money, will be staged in Zhuhai in southern China for the next five years from 2015 to 2019.

    "The 12-player singles field in Zhuhai will consist of players ranked No.9 through No.20 in the world, along with one wildcard, in a four-group round robin format. The winners of each respective group will advance to the single elimination semifinal stage of the event. Meanwhile, six doubles teams will compete in a two-group round robin format, with the winner of each group advancing to the final...

    "The event in Zhuhai will replace the Tournament Of Champions on the 2015 WTA calendar." WTA story

    Zhuhai is located just north of Macau, across from Shenzhen on the Pearl River Delta, south of Guangzhou.

    On Sunday at Sofia, Bulgaria, in the final of the 2014 WTA Tournament of Champions, the 2014 champion at Charleston, 26 year old 4th seeded #17 (career high: #9) Andrea Petkovic from Darmstadt, Germany, defeated the 2014 champion at Indian Wells, 32 year old 3rd seeded #15 (career high: #10) Flavia Pennetta of Italy (residence: Verbier, Switzerland), 1-6, 6-4, 6-3 (Flavia is show during the match; Andrea is shown holding the hardware afterward).

    Andrea's prize is $265,000; Flavia's prize is $140,000.

    On court after the match, Andrea said: "I love watching Flavia play, but I hate playing her because she's so difficult to play! I'm happy could gather enough energy in the end and play well enough to win it in the end." WTA story
