Olivia Rogowska has been nominated as a potential starter in the WTA Rising Stars Exhibition event at the WTA Finals in Singapore, and you can vote to help to send her there.
For the first time in WTA history, the WTA Finals will feature four WTA Rising Stars competing in an exhibition format in Singapore with two representatives from Asia-Pacific and two from the rest of the world.
The invitational will feature four matches, as each rising star will face-off head-to-head, followed by a final match between the two with the best results.
The event will take place in the state-of-the art OCBC Arena at the newly opened Singapore Sports Hub, with the final match taking place on Centre Court of the Singapore Indoor Stadium during the Day Session on Oct 21.
Rising Stars finalists will compete on the same stage as the World’s Top 8 women’s tennis stars as well as participate in kid’s clinics and community outreach programs throughout the WTA Finals.
Fans from around the world vote on the four rising stars, with Rogowska’s career-best 2014 earning her a shortlist nomination.
The 24 year old from Victoria has enjoyed a successful year thus far on tour, claiming titles in Launceston and Sacramento, to go with a second round appearance at the Australian Open and her qualification for the main draws of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells and the Citi Open in Washington DC.
Voting closes on Friday October 3, with the four WTA Rising Stars who receive the most votes to be announced on Thursday, October 9.
