  • Petra Kvitova Singapore 2018

"So it's always very positive, always gives me extra confidence to beat a player like this", said Pliskova, the seventh seed.

"I felt pretty good from the baseline today, so it wasn't only down to my serve", Pliskova said in a post-match interview.

"The good thing I suppose with this format is you're not out".

Kvitova, who has a tour-leading five titles this year, lifted in a desperate attempt to get back into the match but was unable to convert three break points in a pivotal third game of the second set.

"10 of 10, I know". "Yeah, I was, like, 10".

Osaka admitted she was mentally exhausted in that final following her draining triumph in NY and the fan favourite, who turned 21 just days ago, could confirm her arrival as a major force on the women's tour. So I'm really not sure how it works. "You never really know how you're gonna feel until you're in that moment". However, it was too late to produce the improbable comeback as Pliskova calmly served out the opening set after just 36 minutes of play.

After becoming the first Japanese player to win a Grand Slam singles title, Osaka has received several lucrative endorsement deals and featured prominently in the media, including an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in the US.

In the Red Group, Angelique Kerber, Naomi Osaka, Sloane Stephens and Kiki Bertens have been drawn.

"So it's going to be good match next match".

Trump referred to as the fed’s largest menace
Trump himself has increased criticism of the Fed's rate increases, calling them "crazy" and warning they would hurt the economy. NO: The unemployment rate is the lowest it's been in 50 years.

The competition gets under way with White Group matches Sunday.

The reigning Wimbledon champion became the top seed when Roland Garros victor Simona Halep was forced to withdraw due to a back injury.

"Life makes me happy".

Wozniacki's previous victory between the pair came at the WTA Finals of 2014, when she overcame her rival, 6-3, 6-3.

World No. 7 Elina Svitolina followed the opening ceremony with a surprise 6-3, 6-3 victory over world No. 5 Petra Kvitova, before world No. 8 Karolina Pliskova stunned defending champion and world No. 3 Caroline Wozniacki 6-2, 6-4 in the second match.

Wozniacki was obviously disappointed to lose her first round robin match but the Australian Open champion will be looking to recover in her second tie against Petra Kvitova on Tuesday.

"I think the fact that he s respected me since I was a kid and respected my opinions and he could see that I could really hold my own, as well, I think has made our relationship this strong", she said.

"Winning a Grand Slam and finishing No. 1, I think it's the most that I could ask for", Halep said. I will take care of it.
