The doubles field for the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore is nearly set, as two more teams booked their spots at the Dongfeng Motor Wuhan Open. Hear from both teams on this episode. First up are the Czech duo from Plzen, Andrea Sestini Hlavackova and Barbora Strycova, who became the third team to qualify by making the final in Wuhan. Hear from #TeamAngryBirds (Andi = Angry, Bara = Birds) on what makes their team click and why they don't want to be painting coffee cups in Singapore. It all makes sense after you listen. Second, you'll hear from Elise Mertens and Demi Schuurs, who won their fourth title this year in Wuhan to book their Singapore debut. Demi discusses her unbelievable season, how you pronounce her name, and why they've tried and failed to come up with a good team name. Maybe you can help!
