ISTANBUL, Turkey - Last year, Sara Errani became the fifth player since the institution of the round robin format at the season finale in 2003 to compete in both singles and doubles.

Notes: Errani will play doubles at the season finale wiht Roberta Vinci for the second straight year ... Prior to the switch to the round robin format, three players won both the singles and doubles events at the WTA Championships in the same year. Martina Navratilova did it five times, Jana Novotna once and Martina Hingis once.
