The St. Petersburg tournament director Alexander Medvedev spoke about the future of WTA Finals event that will be played in Singapore until 2018, then the venue will change and at the moment there are six cities that showed interest to host the event, including St.

Petersburg. 'We will meet WTA officials in Singapore', Medvedev said. 'Format is not clear yet, we said that a 16 player field would not be appropriate. I mean, a transition from WTA Finals to a regular event with 16 players...'. 'The decision on the place that will host the event will be made before end of February', added Medvedev in an interview to Championat, Also Manchester, three Asian cities and another unknown one are among the candidates to host the event.

If there will be 16 players in the WTA Finals field, probably WTA Elite Trophy in Zhuhai will be cancelled. ALSO READ: Garbine Muguruza qualies for WTA Finals. 'It motivates me to work hard'
