“We are thrilled to bring the WTA Finals to Fort Worth this year and showcase the world’s best tennis players to a new audience,” said Steve Simon, WTA Chairman and CEO. “Engaging the local community is crucial for the growth of our sport, helping to inspire the next generation of tennis fans and players in both Fort Worth and around the world.”
