Cancun, Mexico

The 2023 WTA Finals will be held at the Grand Oasis Cancun. It is a luxury resort that is located in the heart of the Cancun Hotel Zone.

The Cancun International Tennis Center is a state-of-the-art facility that seats over 10,000 spectators. The center has four courts, including a main court with a retractable roof.

The resort has great features like a private beach, multiple pools, a variety of restaurants and bars, and a world-class spa.



WTA Finals was first held in 1972 and has been held in a variety of cities around the world over the years. If you’re familiar with the game you may remember some of the greatest winners of the tournament that include Martina Navratilova, Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Serena Williams, and Maria Sharapova.


Prize Money

The total prize money for the 2023 WTA Finals is $14 million, with the singles champion earning $1.5 million and the doubles champions earning $750,000.



Some of the favorites for the 2023 WTA Finals include:

  • Iga Swiatek: Swiatek is the world No. 1 and has won seven titles in 2023, including the French Open and the US Open. She is the clear favourite to win the WTA Finals.
  • Coco Gauff: Gauff is the world No. 2 and has won three titles in 2023. She is a rising star in the women’s game and is a big contender to win the WTA Finals. She beat Swiatek earlier this year in Cincinatti. Swiatek has since avenged the defeat and holds an 8-1 lead in the head to head.
  • Aryna Sabalenka: Sabalenka is the world No. 3 and has won two titles in 2023. She is a big-hitting player with a powerful serve and is a threat to anyone.
  • Ons Jabeur: Jabeur is the world No. 4 and has won two titles in 2023. She is a versatile player with a good all-around game and is a real dark horse here.

In addition to the four favourites listed above, there are a number of other players who could make a deep run at the 2023 WTA Finals. These players include:

Jessica Pegula: Pegula is a consistent performer who has reached the semifinals of a Grand Slam twice in 2023. She is a threat to anyone on her day.

Marketa Vondrousova: Vondrousova won Wimbledon in 2023 and has a powerful serve and groundstrokes. She is a contender to win the WTA Finals, but will need to be more consistent.


Betting Odds

According to bet365, the following are the odds on the top five favorites to win the 2023 WTA Finals singles title:

  • Iga Swiatek: 2/1
  • Aryna Sabalenka: 9/2
  • Coco Gauff: 11/2
  • Elena Rybakina: 6/1
  • Jessica Pegula: 7/1

The favourite has a great chance given current form but it’s by no means guaranteed. Garcia and Muguruza are the champions of the past 2 years, and neither were favourites at the start. After a long, hard physical and emotional year, its by no means easy to play peak tennis and upsets are extremely likely.


The 2023 WTA Finals is shaping up to be an exciting tournament, with some of the best players in the world competing for the title. The tournament is also being held in a beautiful location, so fans can expect a great experience all-around.
