After replacing Shenzhen with Guadalajara last year due to COVID-19 restrictions, the WTA is moving the year-end finale to Fort Worth, Texas in 2022.

The WTA Finals, the elite tennis tournament featuring the Top 8 singles players and doubles teams, will take place at the state-of-the-art Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, from October 31st to November 7th.

“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,” said Steve Simon, WTA Chairman and CEO. “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.”

Last year, when the WTA announced Guadalajara in Mexico as the replacement city, it was stated that the WTA Finals would come back to Shenzhen from 2022 through 2030. Apparently, plans needed to be modified in the meantime, but the latest WTA press release states that the season-ending tournament should be back in Shenzhen, China, next year.

  1. Marija, Dickies Arena is right in my backyard. I was born and raised in Ft. Worth, Texas. And yes I am planning on attending the whole tournament. I already attended the NCAA (college) basketball tournament, known as “March Madness” at Dickies Arena. I will definitely get some pictures and stories out of “Cowtown” (as the locals refer to Ft. Worth) and hopefully see some good tennis. There is a good chance that Coco Gauff and Jessicas Pegula will qualify in singles and doubles, as well as Caroline Garcia. I really hope that Coco makes it because that would generate a lot of interest in tennis in the middle of American Football (NFL) season, specifically the Dallas Cowboys.

  2. Jim, that sounds wonderful. It’s so great that the WTA is coming right to your backyard. I’m looking forward to hearing your first-hand experiences in the comments here.
