Wang Surges Past Muguruza, Yastremska Reaches Maiden Final in Hong Kong

Open- Women's Singles

Fourth-seed Garbine Muguruza is into her first semifinal since the French Open in June after beating Luksika Kumkhum of Thailand 6-2, 7-5.

It's the first career title for the 18-year-old, who admitted waking up nervous. "I plan to talk to my team, and we will see what are the options", said Svitolina in interview to the edition "tennis of Ukraine". "I trusted myself that I can win, but I didn't really get deep into those thoughts because I knew that when I go on court, I would forget about everything and just play point by point".

For the victory of 18-year-old Ukrainian will receive $ 163 265 and 280 ranking points, which will allow her to climb into the top 70.

The 2016 Wimbledon girls singles finalist conquered her nerves as she fought back from an early setback to win only her second WTA quarter-final earlier Friday.

Giorgi had won their only previous meeting and finished Sunday's match in 59 minutes. It was her second career title after the Jiangxi Open in July.

Second-seeded Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia outlasted top-seeded Karolina Pliskova 7-6 (7), 6-3 to claim the title in Tianjin, China.

Belgium's Alison Van Uytvanck rallied after dropping the first set to stun third-seeded Barbora Strycova of the Czech Republic in the quarterfinals at Linz, Austria.

Mahomes led the Chiefs 73 yards on their first possession, finishing the drive himself with a short scramble for a touchdown. The Chiefs remain without star safety Eric Berry, who has been "day to day" for about two months with a troublesome heel.

The Spaniard was relieved to keep the hard-fought match to just two sets ahead of her Saturday semi.

She won her maiden title with a heavy serve, and stood on court for a moment looking dumbfounded.

The Rome champion, who had been hoping to sew up qualification in Hong Kong for the WTA Finals, said Saturday that she was a "fighter" and had come back on court believing she still had a chance.

"It was (the) toughest game", she said.

"But if before the match you think it s going to be really hard you up your focus, and when you go on court you stay more dedicated to each point, that s what helped me to stay that calm during the whole match".

Pliskova, ranked No. 6, is still not assured of locking up a spot in the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore.
