Porsche Race to the WTA Finals stands for the global partnership between Porsche and the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA). Since 2017, Porsche is the official and exclusive automotive partner of the WTA and the title partner of the Porsche Race to the WTA Finals, the qualification leaderboard for the WTA Finals. The year’s eight most successful women players will come together at the season-ending championships in Guadalajara. Mexico’s second largest city hosts the season-ending tournament for this year only, with the event returning to its home in the modern and technologically emergent Chinese metropolis Shenzhen, China, from 2022 through 2030.
“The WTA Finals are one of the year’s sporting highlights and have developed into an event with worldwide appeal. We’re delighted to be a part of the success story through our long-standing partnership with the WTA, the Porsche Race to the WTA Finals and as a partner of the WTA Finals,” said Detlev von Platen, member of the Executive Board responsible for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG.
Starting places in Guadalajara are given to the eight most successful singles players and doubles pairings. Crucial are the placings in the year-long Porsche Race to the WTA Finals. The results for every player at the WTA and Grand Slam tournaments staged prior to the WTA Finals count toward the qualifying ranking.
