SINGAPORE - Americans Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears have snapped up the eighth and final spot in the doubles field at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global.

Kops-Jones and Spears secured their qualification by winning their semifinal at the Generali Ladies Linz on Saturday. They'll play Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka in the final in Linz on Sunday.

"We're beyond happy to have made the WTA Finals for the second year in a row and can't wait to take to the court at the Singapore Sports Hub," Kops-Jones said. "There's no greater finish to the season than having qualified and we're delighted to be playing in front of the amazing fans in Singapore again."

The American duo's season is highlighted by titles in Doha and Nottingham, their 11th and 12th WTA doubles titles together over their careers. They also both broke the Top 10 on the WTA Doubles Rankings this year after hovering just outside the elite for years, both getting to No.10 in early March.

And so, the doubles field is set - here are the eight teams heading to the Singapore Sports Hub:
Martina Hingis & Sania Mirza (SUI/IND)
Bethanie Mattek-Sands & Lucie Safarova (USA/CZE)
Ekaterina Makarova & Elena Vesnina (RUS/RUS)
Casey Dellacqua & Yaroslava Shvedova (AUS/KAZ)
Timea Babos & Kristina Mladenovic (HUN/FRA)
Caroline Garcia & Katarina Srebotnik (FRA/SLO)
Chan Hao-Ching & Chan Yung-Jan (TPE/TPE)
