“I’m so happy to qualify. After a great start to the year in Australia, I’m really proud to have secured my spot for the seventh time.

“This will be the third city I have visited for the WTA Finals so I’m excited to see what’s in store in Shenzhen,” Kvitova, who won titles in Sydney and Stuttgart and finished runner-up at the Australian Open this year, said in a statement.

The top eight singles players face off in a round-robin format at the WTA Finals, with the winner taking home the Billie Jean King Trophy.
