Prague in serious talks to host WTA finals after Singapore

As they say: Appetite comes with eating.

After recently hosting three Fed Cup finals, a Davis Cup final and the inaugural Laver Cup, the O2 Arena in Prague would love to host an even bigger event, the WTA Championships, currently hosted by Singapore.

What do you think about Prague as a potential venue for the event?

It seems that St. Petersburg and Manchester are the other - and very strong - contenders.

This would be brilliant.

Use the Laver Cup black court!

Re: Prague in serious talks to host WTA finals after Singapore

since prague def has a habit to speed up the courts like crazy it be some shocker to the pushers out there in comparison to slow af singapore, no doubt.

great idea regardless, make it happen!

Yes! Especially since the Czech Republic doesn't have above an international level tour event but contribute so many top players to the tour. The venue is great too

Hope it happens! I'd be there in a heartbeat; have been to Prague 3 times already! And yes to the black court

Prague would be lovely.








Not that I have to worry about my fave ever making the WTA Finals so it might as well be on Mars.

Yes please I would love to see this!

You know it might actually be cheaper for me to go to see the YEC in Prague than in Manchester which is in my own country Britain can be very expensive! I am not going to St. Petersburg in the current political climate, but I would love to see this beautiful city one day.
However I found the dark court of the Laver Cup hideous and surreal!

Agree, it looked great
I'm all for it, it'd definitely be easier to attend there than Singapore.

Yeah what's the deal with that they definitely should have a bigger tournament.

Re: Prague in serious talks to host WTA finals after Singapore

Prague would be a fantastic. Really like St. Petersburg as a backup option as well, while Manchester is kinda meh.

He probably read on google search or trip advisor that Istanbul is less expensive than Singapore.
Cool story bro.

Would love it to be Manchester personally (as I'd go) but Prague would probably make more sense.

That's the best possible venue I've heard so far

Every option is really great but Prague is the best one

Re: Prague in serious talks to host WTA finals after Singapore

Sounds like a brilliant venue.
Considering that the Czech Republic has so many elite tennis players and as a country seems dedicated to the sport, Prague seems a natural venue for the YEC.
