Petra Kvitova, Naomi Osaka, Elina Svitolina, Ashleigh Barty, Simona Halep, Bianca Andreescu, Belinda Bencic and Karolina Pliskova are set for the WTA Finals
This year’s four Grand Slam champions were split evenly amongst the two groups after the draw was made for the WTA Finals in Shenzhen.
Top seed and French Open champion Ashleigh Barty headlines the Red Group, and is joined by Australian Open winner Naomi Osaka, Czech big-hitter Petra Kvitova and Swiss star Belinda Bencic.
“I’m really excited to be here to play singles for the first time. I have played doubles here a couple of times before,” Barty said.
