"Caroline Wozniacki and Maria Sharapova"Former and present world No.1, Maria Sharapova and Caroline Wozniacki have opened their view in the year-end finals to be held at the beautiful O2 Arena in London.

The two-seeded have desired to shift the Women Istanbul year-end event to the most elite tennis arena in the world in London, O2 Arena. So that, the Men’s ATP-finals and Women’s WTA finals will be held at one-arena, which could be much more fascinating if, men and women contest together at the same place, same time.

World No.4 Russian, Maria Sharapova said that, it would absolutely be pleasant to see, if both Men’s and Women’s finals will be merged. I think that would be a lot more fun for the fans to see the men and women together.

Sharapova further added that it would be a foremost problem for the officials to agenda the tournament if men and women both play at the same time but considering the fact that men’s season is almost a month longer than women, it will be a good opportunity to equalise the tenure of season for both genders. Currently the women schedules are pretty far off than men.

Caroline Wozniacki had same views as Sharapova and she wanted to shift the venue of their year-end finale to London as well. She said, I think we have some very good players and some very big names, as well. I know they have obviously Rafa and Roger and Novak and Murray really dictating most of it, but at the same time you can just see out there today we also have a lot of fans coming and watching us.

Danish World No.1 also added that she wanted to see all the Grand Slam titles played together as well just like Miami and Indian Wells. She wanted to have year-end championships in combined fashion as well but was also concerned at the fact that there calendar and men’s calendar doesn’t match at all. It will require a lot of changes that will not be easy at all.
