The WTA Finals had their draw party today in Singapore. The round robin tournanment, which begins on Sunday, will feature eight of the top nine women with Serena Williams skipping the event.
In the Red Group, 2-time Grand Slam winner and No. 1 Angelique Kerber leads the way over some tough competition in Simona Halep, Madison Keys and Dominika Cibulkova. With No. 1 wrapped, can Kerber find the energy to break through to her first knockout stage at the Finals?
In the White Group, Agnieszka Radwanska is the only former winner in the field and to defend her crown she’ll have to navigate through the powerful play from Karolina Pliskova and Garbine Muguruza. The final spot between Svetlana Kuznetsova and Johanna Konta is still to be decided with the Russian having to win Moscow otherwise Konta gets in.
