WTA Finals moved from China to Mexico

·1-min read

The season-ending WTA Finals will be held in Guadalajara, Mexico instead of Shenzhen, China this year and will begin on November 8.

The WTA Finals, contested by the world's top eight singles players and eight doubles teams, was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ashleigh Barty won in 2019.

In July, the WTA removed the Asian swing of tournaments from its calendar for a second successive year due to the pandemic, with only the WTA Finals' fate uncertain.

"We are excited to bring our showpiece tournament to the exciting and vibrant city of Guadalajara in this unique year," WTA Chairman and CEO Steve Simon said on Monday.

The WTA Finals is set to return to Shenzhen from 2022 until 2030.
