The big names in women’s tennis – like Simona Halep – came out for a star-studded red carpet gala in Beijing for the China Open player party.
Katerina Siniakova was also at the player’s party, which served as the kickoff to the Song Qingling’s Foundation.
Caroline Wozniacki is continuing her Asian Swing resurgence in Beijing.
The party took place at Beijing’s iconic Birds’s Nest Stadium, which in 2008 played host to the Olympics Opening Ceremony.
The always colorful Jelena Jankovic was the star of the night…
… and she took the stage with ATP star Andy Murray.
2014 finalist Petra Kvitova is back in Beijing looking to do one better in 2016…
…but Lucie Safarova and Bethanie Mattek-Sands can breathe easy – they’ve already qualified for the WTA Finals!
Since the China Open player party is known for fashion, there was a fashion show in the Bird’s Nest.
Karolina Pliskova walked the red carpet with one of the models…
…as did Elina Svitolina!
China Open officials – along with WTA CEO Steve Simon, far right – applauded the show and the kickoff of the tournament’s new charity.
