Pliskova has to wait for WTA Finals spot Garcia claims first title of 2018 to hit Pliskova's Finals hopes

France's Caroline Garcia survived a hard opening set before beating top seed Karolina Pliskova 7-6 (7) 6-3 to lift the Tianjin Open title on Sunday. But when serving at 5-3 with the set on her racket, Pliskova hit two backhand errors, and suddenly, it was 5-5.

Second seed Garcia overcame Hsieh Su-wei 6-3 6-4 to reach her first final of 2018.

In the other semi-final, teenager Dayana Yastremska ended the run of China's Zhang Shuai, ranked 40 in the world, with a 7-5 6-4 win as the 18-year-old Ukrainian secured a place in her first WTA tour final. Garcia found herself with two set points during the remainder of the tiebreak, and completed her comeback in the breaker with a forehand volley victor, taking the set after a grueling 63 minutes. She saved a set point for Pliskova at 5-6 to go on to win the hour-long first set.

Shaw, Pant shine as India eye big lead against Windies
Jason Holder became the first pacer to make a 50-plus score and take a 5-for against India in India after nearly 35 years. Ajinkya Rahane (80) fell to Holder early in the morning session after adding just five runs to his overnight score.

She could spot the sidelines and force Pliskova out of her comfort zone and gained the most from shorter returns into the middle of the court, a way to reduce Pliskova's angles on the first stroke after serve and retain the control in the rally.

But the sixth ace of the match, the 242 this season, gave her the sixth title.
