Wang dominates Muguruza to reach Zhuhai final

"I think my family sent me that article,"Barty revealed in the post-match press conference after she beat Garcia". Although the professional and low key way Ash goes about her tennis means she often flies under the radar in terms of publicity - she just gets the job done.

Barty feared her tournament was over after her round robin stage debut in Zhuhai ended with defeat to Aryna Sabalenka - but a key result fell her way before she overwhelmed defending champion Julia Gorges in Saturday's first semi-final, 4-6 6-3 6-2. Wang trails Barty 0-1 in the pair's head-to-head record after falling in straight sets against the Australian in Strasbourg earlier this year.

Australia's Ashleigh Barty progressed to the final of the WTA Elite Trophy in China on Saturday (Nov 3) after overcoming Julia Goerges 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. She's hit a career-high ranking, and she's maintained her spot in the top 20 throughout the year, which is not an easy thing to do.

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, who took a break from tennis earlier in her career to play cricket, has proved nearly unbeatable when she has won the first set this year as she has solidified her position in the world top 20.

The Twitter commenter, Halfapintdoll, wrote that Queen Latifah and Mo'Nique had leads in romcoms way before she did. Wilson responded with a lawsuit which she won but was later forced to pay back a substantial sum.

The win marks the third title of Barty's career and the second of 2018, following a win at Nottingham earlier this year.

"It's been a great finish in China this week", said Barty, who completes her season in the best possible way.

The world number 22 looked calm and focused during the 73-minute semi-final, while Muguruza appeared out of sorts and frustrated, clattering her racket on to the court in the second set.

"It has been a phenomenal year, it really has".

Remarkably she started 2017 ranked No.325 in the world to begin her tennis comeback.
