This year’s WTA Finals will be held in Fort Worth, Texas, the WTA confirmed on Tuesday.

The event, for the top eight-ranked women of the year, and top eight doubles teams, moves from Guadalajara, the second new city in a row.

The Finals will be held from October 31 to November 7, in the Dickies Arena.

The WTA said it will then revert to its previous home of Shenzhen, China, where it had begun a planned 10-year spell in 2019, before it was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The Dickies Arena and the city of Fort Worth has a proven track record of hosting world-class sporting and entertainment events, and we are excited to bring the WTA’s showpiece tournament back to the United States for the first time since 2005,” Steve Simon, the WTA Chairman and CEO said in a statement on the WTA Tour website.

“This location and venue for the 2022 WTA Finals will provide a fantastic experience for players and fans alike and offer a fitting finale as another exciting season on the Hologic WTA Tour comes to a close.”

Spain’s Garbine Muguruza won the Finals in Guadalaja in 2021.
