    Other than Cincinnati she's barely "played" any tournament since Wimbledon.

    Someone might pull out. She could get in as an alternate.

    Now the #3, #5, and #9 teams are all out (#9 because they aren't playing together anymore), giving the final qualifying spot to #11 Peng/Mirza with 2060 points (about 500 behind #10). A bunch of teams could pass them fairly easily in these last two weeks.

    Caroline Garcia Seals Final Singles Spot, Andreja Klepac/María José Martínez Sánchez Qualify for 2017 BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global

    ST PETERSBURG, FL, USA – The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) announced today that France’s Caroline Garcia and the doubles team of Andreja Klepac and María José Martínez Sánchez have qualified for the 2017 BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global, set to take place from October 22-29.

    Garcia has secured the final qualification berth to round out the eight-player singles field, joining Garbiñe Muguruza, Karolina Pliskova, Simona Halep, Elina Svitolina, Venus Williams, Caroline Wozniacki and Jelena Ostapenko in Singapore.

    The French World No.9 is set make her debut singles appearance at the WTA Finals, and will return to Singapore after competing in the doubles field in last year’s edition alongside Kristina Mladenovic. Garcia is the first woman from France to qualify for the WTA Finals in 11 years, since Amélie Mauresmo in 2006. Marion Bartoli competed in the year-end event as an alternate in 2007 and 2011.

    "Qualifying for the WTA Finals in Singapore means the world to me,” said Garcia. “I'm very proud to be among the top eight players of the season and I'm looking forward to being part of that incredible player field. To be the first Frenchwoman since Mauresmo in 2006 to qualify for the year-end finals makes it even more special."

    The 23-year-old has enjoyed her best season to date, most recently riding an 11-match winning streak to lift two trophies at the Dongfeng Motor Wuhan Open and her first Premier Mandatory WTA title at the China Open in Beijing. Following her fifth career title at Beijing, Garcia became the eighth woman from her country to reach the WTA Top 10 (at No.9) and first since Bartoli in 2013. In addition, the Frenchwoman reached her first Grand Slam quarterfinal at her home major at Roland Garros in June.

    Slovenia’s Klepac and Spain’s Martínez Sánchez will make their debut appearance as a team at the WTA Finals. 35-year-old Martínez Sánchez returns as a former champion, having lifted the Martina Navratilova trophy in 2009 (alongside Llagostera Vives) while Klepac, 31, will be making her first showing at the year-end event.

    The pairing of Lucie Hradecka/Katerina Siniakova, who qualified for the WTA Finals earlier this season, are forced to withdraw due to a knee injury from Hradecka. There is now only one qualification place remaining, with seven of eight doubles teams having now secured their spot at the 2017 WTA Finals.



    The Slovenian-Spanish duo began their partnership at the start of the 2017 season, earning their first win over fellow qualifiers Groenefeld/Peschke to reach the quarterfinals at the Brisbane International. The pair clinched their first title together at the Toray Pan Pacific Open and reached the quarterfinals at the US Open, where they knocked out the No.1 seeds and reigning WTA Finals champions Makarova/Vesnina. In addition, they made round of 16 showings at the Australian Open, Roland Garros and Wimbledon.

    Staged at the Singapore Sports Hub from October 22-29, the 2017 BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global is an eight-day tennis festival featuring the world’s best players vying for US$7 million in prize money and two of the most prestigious titles in women’s tennis. The Top 8 singles players will compete in a round-robin format with the winner taking home the Billie Jean King Trophy. The Top 8 doubles teams will compete in a knock-out format for the Martina Navratilova Trophy.

    The Porsche Race to Singapore Leaderboard is updated each Monday (every two weeks during Grand Slams events) and can be found at www.WTAFinals.com.

    The winner of the Porsche Race to Singapore - the player who sits at No.1 on the Race Leaderboard entering the WTA Finals - will not only seal a spot at the season-ending showpiece, but also be congratulated with a new Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet.

    One of strangest seasons in WTA history now has eight great players set for Singapore, but more remarkable when you realize who's NOT there:

    70% of these examples are due to injury. Do we really need to list the accolades of Djokovic, Murray, Wawrinka, and Nishikori?
