Stars of women’s tennis head to China this week for the WTA Elite Trophy in Zhuhai.

The tournament, for the top 11 players not qualified for the WTA Finals plus a wildcard, is in its fifth edition.

Kiki Bertens, Madison Keys and Elise Mertens are all involved though Johanna Konta and Serena Williams are among the faces to have pulled out.

Nevertheless, it’s still a must-watch event with over $2million available in total prize money.

Ashleigh Barty won the event in 2018 and went on to become world No 1 this year, showing just how talented the stars on show are.
