WTA Finals Caroline Garcia overcomes Elina Svitolina in three set thriller

Things looked bleak for France's Garcia when she failed to register a single game in the opening set of her final round-robin contest but she then found her range to run out a 0-6 6-3 7-5 victor in Singapore.

Garcia was the last woman to qualify after an impressive surge through Asia, where she picked up back-to-back Premier titles in Wuhan and Beijing, having arrived in Tokyo, where she made the quarters the week before, ranked No20.

Garcia's dream debut will continue on Saturday with a semi-final against an evergreen Venus Williams, while Woznaicki takes on White Group victor Karolina Pliskova, who can replace Halep as world No.1 if she wins the tournament on Sunday. "She played really well, and she deserved to win". "I think this court is great for the all-around player who can play both aggressive and defense."The sixth-seeded Wozniacki saved the one break point she faced in the fifth game of the second set".

Another then strolled to victory against the world No. 1 in the match that followed, despite the knowledge that even a momentous win would not be rewarded with a place in the final four.

It was a bitterly disappointing evening for Halep, who was impressive in her opening victory over Caroline Garcia.

Paddock killed 59 people in the meticulously planned attack and wounded 500 more more before shooting and killing himself. Another brother, Eric Paddock, spoke to media after the shooting, but Bruce Paddock did not.

Garcia, who won her last two tournaments to reach the Finals, was two points from elimination in the 10th game of the third set but she dug deep to hand Wozniacki her first defeat of the competition. "A couple of times she looked done but she always came back", Garcia said. So probably when I finish the tournament, I will, you know, have questions for my team and for myself, of course, what I did wrong, because, you know, this kind of matches I played, they were, like, really bad tennis from me. "Okay, why not", she said with a smile.

"Everything went so fast for me, so I'm very stressed to be here, but now I enjoy it and it's the best moment". "Everyone has a different style of playing".

"I didn't really do anything special - I just prepared for another match". "I knew here that it's going to be tough, the best eight players are playing". "During the points I missed too many and I wanted to over-hit the ball".
