Eugenie Bouchard has expressed her delight after qualifying for her first WTA Finals.
The Canadian joins Agnieszka Radwanska, Caroline Wozniacki and Ana Ivanovic in booking a place at the season-ending tournament in Singapore.
They will compete with the already-qualified Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Simona Halep and Petra Kvitova in the tournament, which is set to take place from 20 to 26 October.
“I’m excited to compete in my first WTA Finals,” Bouchard said.
“The fans in Singapore were so enthusiastic when I visited in January for the launch of the Road To Singapore.
“I have worked hard all year on and off the court to qualify for the WTA Finals in Singapore. I am looking forward to returning later this month and hope to see some new members of the Genie Army at the Finals.”
Ivanovic added: “It’s been my big goal since the beginning of the year.
“Everyone really earns a spot there, and I feel like I’ve been playing so well the whole year. I was working hard towards this.
“The WTA Finals is a very special tournament because it’s only eight players. And we’re all excited that it’s in Singapore this year – everything looks so beautiful. We’re all very motivated.”
