Elina Svitolina is ready to defend his title from last year in the final of the WTA Finals, which is a tournament between the eight best female tennis players in the world.
The 25-year-old ukrainer was ahead 4-1 in the third and decisive set, when her opponent, Belinda Bencic from Switzerland, had to withdraw with an injury.
This is Svitolina ready to sæsonfinalens last day with the digits 5-7, 6-3, 4-1.
She played a great match and delivered, among other things 16 serveesser along the way, but she was vexed that she did not won the fight on a match point.
- It is hard for her (Bencic, ed.). Hopefully she comes out soon and comes back next year.
- But I will do everything to lift the trophy again in the morning, says Svitolina after the match.
It was otherwise, the 22-year-old swiss, who is number seven in the world, who came to the best start.
She broke Svitolina to 4-2 in the first set, and although ukraineren broke back and had the opportunity to get the set in the tiebreak in their own serveparti, she was instead broken by Bencic, who utilized its third sætbold.
But where Bencic had taken over in the first set, was another set of a nightmare for schweizeren, that started to be broken and sustained an injury in both the rear of thigh and the foot along the way in the set.
She had a hard time to keep up with the defending champion, and cried several times frustrated out to his dad and girlfriend in the stands.
Svitolina continued instead the stable play and won the set in 40 minutes.
Bencic came limping out for the third set and tried to implement, but Svitolina came quickly to 3-0. As ukraineren came at 4-1 in a clean serveparti, threw Bencic in the towel.
In the final must Svitolina up against either last Ashleigh Well or the world's number two, Karolína Plísková, who plays the semi-final later on Saturday.
