Women's Doubles Tennis Prize Money Up for Grabs at the 2018 WTA Finals

The 2018 WTA Finals tennis tournament for women players on the WTA circuit is taking place this week from October 21-28, 2018, on the indoor hard courts at the Singapore Indoor Stadium located in Kallang, Singapore. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs for the women doubles tennis players at the 2018 WTA Finals.



The WTA Finals is the year-end championship for the top women tennis players in the sport. Only the top eight ranked women doubles players from the 2018 season are eligible to play in the WTA Finals and those eight women get to play for $1 million in prize money.

The doubles teams play in single elimination matches with the four winning teams advancing to the semifinals and then the final two teams playing for the championship. Seedings for the first matches are based upon rankings the teams have earned over the course of the WTA season.

All prize money below is in American dollars. The money shown is per team so to get the per player amount you divide in half as noted below.
