The 2019 WTA Finals will be advertised on your betting accounts as the Shiseido WTA Finals Shenzhen for sponsorship reasons. It is a hotly anticipated women’s tennis event that boasts some of the best players in the world at the minute, each going all out to end the year on a high. It has been another rollercoaster season for tennis followers but there’s still a bit of time for a few more surprising results. Expect a fair share of drama to come from this one.
The event will take place in Shenzhen, China for the first time and will be staged between 27 October and 3 November. It will be the 49th renewal of the world-famous series and the 44th time doubles have been included in the line-up. The competition boasts eight singles players and eight teams of doubles.

There will also be dozens of markets available on each match, including set betting. The majority of these markets will be live throughout the course of the match thanks to in-play betting. The odds and handicap lines will be updated to match the scores.
Elina Svitolina won the singles prize last year and she was joined on the top step by Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic who paired up to great effect, winning the doubles crown.
Naomi Osaka Priced as Early Favourite
The current outright betting has Naomi Osaka as ante-post favourite and punters in agreement with the traders will find no more than the 4/1 being served up by Paddy Power and Betfair. That’s market best price. Bianca Vanessa Andreescu is rated as the main danger and has been chalked up on the betting board as a 4/1 second favourite. Unibet is the most generous team on that one.
She’s joined by fans’ favourite Ashleigh Barty who is also 4/1 at Unibet. We then get into the bigger odds and have Simona Halep at 7/1, Elina Svitolina 8/1, Karolina Pliskova 8/1 and Petra Kvitova at 8/1. All prices are taken from the Unibet website and are correct at the time of writing.
