Garbiñe Muguruza and Madison Keys headline 2018 field as Julia Goerges returns to Zhuhai to defend her title
October 23, 2018
ST PETERSBURG, FL, USA - The WTA have announced the player field set to compete in the fourth annual Hengqin Life WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai from October 30 - November 4, 2018 for a total prize money of over $2.3 million.
The year-end event features both singles and doubles, and will be staged in the southern Chinese coastal city of Zhuhai at the custom designed and state-of-the-art Zhuhai Hengqin International Tennis Centre.
Among the prominent list of players who will compete in Zhuhai is two-time Grand Slam champion Garbiñe Muguruza (2016 Roland Garros and 2017 Wimbledon). In addition, 2017 US Open runner-up Madison Keys will make her second appearance in Zhuhai while Julia Goerges returns to defend her crown. Between all players competing in Zhuhai this year, they represent 14 WTA singles titles won in 2018.
The player field also includes: Daria Kasatkina, Anastasija Sevastova, Aryna Sabalenka, Elise Mertens, Caroline Garcia, Anett Kontaveit, Wang Qiang, and Zhang Shuai.
More matches tomorrow! Can't wait! I think I would like to see Kontaveit beat Gorges and Keys beat Dasha, this would really mix it up and would be anyone's opportunity.
Obviously, it would be great for Wang if Keys can win 2-1 against Kasatkina. I'm still hoping!
