Why the WTA Elite Trophy should be before the WTA Finals and not after!

For the first time on the WTA tour they are running the event called the WTA Elite Trophy where those who missed out on a place in Singapore play a similar event to win what is the final trophy of the year however in my opinion the scheduling of the tournament just doesn’t make any sense at all.

The WTA Finals should be the final tournament of the season and the Elite Trophy should be before and not after. I haven’t gotten into the Elite Trophy at all this week as I’ve always seen the WTA Finals as the final tournament of the year, the same as the ATP World Tour finals!

It’s like having the third place play-off for the football world cup after the final, it just doesn’t work!

I think the tournament is a good idea however I do think for next year it has to be before the WTA Finals if anything to keep the fans more interested at the end of the season.

Like I said the idea is good but it needs to be before the big finale of the season and not after it. It should be seen as the tournament where those who missed out on a place in Singapore end the year on the high but with having Singapore first I just feel like it takes away the finale feeling of the WTA Finals as it isn’t the final tournament of the season.
