DongFeng Motor • Wuhan Open 2016 (Wuhan Open) kicked off in Wuhan, China on September 23, 2016.

 As a major WTA tournament in Asia, Wuhan Open 2016 boasts the strongest lineup ever. In the singles main draw, apart from Serena Williams who has pulled out because of a shoulder injury, the world top 10, including Angelique Kerber, newly-crowned world number one and US Open champion; and Garbine Muguruza, world number three and the singles runner-up of Wuhan Open 2015, will appear.

 According to rules, in the qualification from September 23 to 24, 32 singles players will vie for eight berths in the main draw after three rounds. Compared with the players already in the main draw, the qualifiers were also strong. Besides top-seeded qualifier Russian rising star Daria Kasatkina, the qualification draw also includes veterans like Julia Goerges, Alize Cornet and Monica Niculescu.

 Wuhan Open is one of the WTA premier 5 tournaments (the other four are in Doha, Rome, Montreal and Cincinnati). The tournament takes place in Wuhan every September from 2014 to 2028, offering 900 points to the champion and a total amount of 2.589 million US dollars as prize money.
