Barty beats Wang to win WTA Elite Trophy final

Garbine Muguruza 2018 Zhuhai

Making her debut appearance at Zhuhai, after claiming the last direct qualifying spot with an annual points total of 2155, Wang beat Keys for the first time after two straight defeats.

"It's been a great finish in China this week", Barty said after Sunday's win.

Wang was a late replacement for original group-stage victor Madison Keys after the American withdrew from the semifinal with a left knee injury.

The Australian Woman, Ashleigh Barty, rallied past the defending champion Julia Goerges, to reserve a berth in the finals of the WTA Elite Trophy.

Sevastova, 22 from Lativa, took a nip-and-tuck first set in Zhuhai after a tie-break, but Muguruza, also 22, comfortably won the second.

"I'm happy with the win", she said.

Serena opted to end her 2018 season two weeks ago, allowing players like Barty to overtake her.

Lacazette came close in the 39 minute when Mesut Ozil flicked him through but his low shot fizzed just past the post. Leno had good and bad moments in this game, but the German looks an upgrade on the aging and error-prone Petr Cech.

ASHLEIGH Barty originally figured she would have left China already but, instead, Australia's leading female tennis player is through to the final of the WTA Elite Trophy.

Wang looked well-positioned to get back into the match but couldn't fashion a break against Barty and ultimately paid for her missed chances in the seventh game.

Barty lost her first round-robin match to Aryna Sabalenka 4-6, 4-6, but a 6-3, 6-4 win over Caroline Garcia was enough for her to qualify for the semifinal.

While her service was clicking, Barty's all-court game did the rest and after being forced to save a break point for 2-2, she broke Wang again to go 4-3 up.

Muguruza said Wang's performance was "excellent", adding: "She was playing incredible shots and not missing anything".

Barty told WTA.com after sealing her third career title: "Thank you to all the fans".

"It's been a phenomenal year and I'm looking forward to a bit of holiday and then getting ready for the Australian summer".
