The top eight lady ballers in the world have gathered in Doha for the 39th WTA year-end Sony Ericsson Championships.
They have been divided into two groups for the round robin format based on the colors of the Qatari flag: the White group features No.1 seed Dinara Safina, No.4 seed Caroline Wozniacki, No.6 seed Victoria Azarenka and No.8 seed Jelena Jankovic. The Maroon group is made up of No.2 seed Serena Williams, No.3 seed Svetlana Kuznetsova, No.5 seed Elena Dementieva and No.7 seed Venus Williams, who is the defending champ.
Alternates Vera Zvonareva + Agnieszka Radwanska also made the trip to Doha.
