The first of three Tennis Festivals took place in Guangzhou, all day this past Saturday and Sunday.
Chan Hao-Ching, Sorana Cirstea and Zhang Shuai were among the WTA stars taking part in the event.
First on the menu, though, was the official draw ceremony for the 10th edition of the Guangzhou Open.
It was of particular importance to Cirstea, given the Romanian was the No.1 seed at the tournament.
After the draw ceremony, the WTA stars signed autographs and posed for photos with all the fans.
Chan and Cirstea also took some time out to play mini-tennis with the fans at the Tennis Festival.
Chan is one of two Taiwanese players in the doubles Top 100, alongside World No.9 Hsieh Su-Wei.
Laura Robson was also at the event. Robson was runner-up to Hsieh at the Guangzhou Open last year.
Urszula Radwanska was also at the event, competing with some young fans in a shuffleboard-style game.

Irina Buryachok showed off some of her coordination skills at USANA's tornado game at the event.
