Abstract: We prove that the Weil-Petersson metric near the boundary of the Teichmüller space is $ C^1$-asymptotically a product of the Weil-Petersson metric on a lower dimensional Teichmüller space and a metric on a model space. In particular, we show that the Weil-Petersson metric on the genus $ g$, $ p$-punctured Teichmüller space with $ 3g-3+p >0$ satisfies all the important properties required to apply the results in a previous work by the authors (2011). These estimates extend the well known $ C^0$ estimates for the Weil-Petersson metric.
