WTA Zhuhai: Garbine Muguruza saves match points to reach the semifinals

"I wanted to win today, but I was not really thinking about qualifying for the semifinal", Garcia said.

Wang Qiang became China's first player to reach the WTA Elite Trophy final after stunning Garbine Muguruza of Spain in straight sets here in the semifinal on Saturday. It has been a great finish (to the season) for me in China this week.

While Barty flourished, Wang sprayed the ball wide and long all too often and, although she got back into the set, nothing was going to stop her opponent moving ahead. This year she's won her first grand slam title, in doubles at the US Open, where she also picked up the sportsmanship award.

But the Australian broke once more and served out the set.

Barty took a break from tennis between 2014 and 2016 to play cricket in the Women's Big Bash League for the Brisbane Heat and for Queensland Fire in the one day competition.

The win makes it her third overall singles title and second for 2018 following her outstanding run at Nottingham in June.

"It's been a phenomenal year and I'm looking forward to a bit of holiday and then getting ready for the Australian summer".

"I know that whenever I have played (Wang) in the past, it's always been an extremely tough match", said Barty.

Barty raced to a 4-0 lead in the opening set before 22nd-ranked Wang forced the match back on serve.

"After yesterday's match I wanted to win today, but I was not really thinking about qualifying for the semi-final".

Barty, who took a break from tennis earlier in her career to play cricket, has proved nearly unbeatable when she has won the first set this year as she has solidified her position in the world top 20.
