The Road To Singapore and WTA Championships were officially launched in market on Monday.
WTA Championships Ambassador Chris Evert and Australian Open semifinalist Eugenie Bouchard were there.
First up was an inspirational forum where the two WTA stars spoke and engaged with local kids.
And there was even time for a few selfies afterwards...
Next up was the Ice Kachang-making session. Ice Kachang is a traditional Singaporean dessert.
Of course, when two of tennis' biggest stars go head to head, there's always a lot of competition...
But while Bouchard declared her Ice Kachang was better, both of their creations were a success.
And then it was off to the iconic photo shoot for some gorgeous pics with the Singapore backdrop.
Evert and Bouchard both said at the end of the day that they enjoyed each other's company a lot.
Evert is a four-time champion at the year-end WTA Championships, in 1972, 1973, 1975 and 1977.
Bouchard is No.3 on the standings for the Road To Singapore, which lead to the WTA Championships.
There will be even more to come from the launch event on wtatennis.com - stay tuned!
