With just two weeks to go until the 2018 WTA season concludes at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global, there are still three spots up for grabs as tournament action heads into its final weeks.
Petra Kvitova and Caroline Wozniacki officially qualified last week in the fourth and fifth spots, but the Race contines in the season's final weeks, as five players are still alive in the chase for the final spots.
Sloane Stephens, Elina Svitolina and Karolina Pliskova currently occupy the sixth through eighth slots in the Race, with the latter two in action this week in Hong Kong and Tianjin, respectively.
No.9 Kiki Bertens, in action in Linz and celebrating a Top 10 debut in the WTA rankings this week, and Wuhan champion Aryna Sabalenka, sitting at No.10 and also competing in Tianjin, are still in mathematical contention.
