Australia's Ashleigh Barty progressed to the final of the WTA Elite Trophy in China on Saturday (Nov 3) after overcoming Julia Goerges 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.

The 22-year-old, accomplished the titles on grass at the Nottingham Open earlier this year and at 2017 Malaysian Open but by far her biggest. Making her debut appearance at Zhuhai, after claiming the last direct qualifying spot with an annual points total of 2155, Wang beat Keys for the first time after two straight defeats.

"I'm looking forward to a bit of holiday and then getting ready for the Australian summer", Barty, 22, said.

Wang made a good use of the Australian's hasty serve and set the score to 4-3.

Apple reportedly cancels iPhone XR production boost
It's possible iPhone XR demand isn't meeting Apple's expectations , but exactly the reason that's happening is hard to determine. Apple had introduced the iPhone XR, made of aluminum, along with two other models, the XS and XS Max , in September this year.

Spurred on by home fans at the Hengqin International Tennis Center, Wang dominated the former world number one, winning 11 games in a row to take the match 6-2, 6-0 and set up a Sunday showdown against Ashleigh Barty.

Wang was a late replacement for original group-stage victor Madison Keys after the American withdrew from the semifinal with a left knee injury.

She will now play local hope Wang Qiang who outclassed double grand slam victor Garbine Muguruza. The Frenchwoman needed to win in straight sets losing no more than seven games. She's also a delight to watch in action, there's a wow factor in every single match I watch, practice too. Both Muguruza and Sevastova had already defeated Zhang Shuai in their opening matches of the Camellia Group, so this final encounter sounded like a knockout match. Barty consolidated her level in tennis and broke into the top 20 in the world.

However, it was the Australian who came out on top to take the only break of the second set in the seventh game, before serving out her second tournament win of the season after her victory at the Nature Valley Open in June.
