The women’s semifinals were set today at the year-end WTA Finals event in Singapore. Joining Red Group winners Maria Sharapova and Agnieszka Radwanska were Garbine Muguruza and Petra Kvitova who emerged from the White Group.
Muguruza capped a perfect first week for her at the event by defeating Petra Kvitova 6-4, 4-6, 7-5 to win the White Group. And the Spaniard is also in the doubles with Carla Suarez Navarro, so she’ll be busy this weekend.
“For sure I’m tired today and it’s going to a challenge for me to see how much my body can handle,” she added. “It’s going to be hard but I think it’s great to be in my position of playing singles and doubles semifinals. Now I have to recover well and do everything possible to be ready for both matches.”
Kvitova still advanced when her countrywoman Lucie Safarova did her a favor beating Angelique Kerber in straight sets 6-4 ,6-3.
“That’s teamwork,” Safarova said. “I am happy for Petra that she went through to the semis and I am happy for my win today as well.”
Tomorrow, Muguruza, who is 13-2 since the US Open, will face Radwanska while Sharapova meets Kvitova in a battle of former champions.
“It’s amazing. To be here for me is great. I’ve been playing well all year and hopefully I can continue winning and playing like this,” Muguruza said who has beaten the Pole four times this year.
Sharapova leads Kvitova 6-3 but the Czech won their last meeting at this event a year ago.
