Garbiñe Muguruza and Jelena Ostapenko will play on Thursday on Wuhan QF. Beautifuls’ duel ;)
Garbiñe’s QF leaves her 600 points ahead of Simona Halep, its more immediate pursuer in the ranking.

6. Venus Williams
7. Jelena Ostapenko

Eu live Race updates daily, so is slightly different. And has Karolina Pliskova ahead of Simona because Karolina made the Wuhan Quarterfinals. And the Eu live Race also gives the dividing line as tho who has qualified or not. According to this, Ostapenko, Konta, Mladenovic and Kuzentsova fall below the line!

Agree gonzalowski, Wuhan QF Garbine vs Jelena will be a beautiful Duel!

Talking about the Race to Singapore ^^

For Mira Andi or anyone interested – Seoul Final, 20 year old French Open winner, Jelena Ostapenko vs up and coming star 21 year old, Haddad Maia:

Haddad Maia is headed for greatness, imo.

AndyMira Says:

@j!….Thank u for the link up there!….Yeah!…Seoul like many other places featuring another underdog in Haddad maia….Who would have thought that she can go to the final!!….They’re all over the Tour now j!…Krunic,J.Fett,T.Maria,Z.Diyas,…It’s very interesting to see how they will fare in the future rc!…

Btw…..I’m surprised that Kiki is 9th on the race…she sucks for a long time now…always lost in 1st[mostly] & 2nd Rd respectively….I wanna see Maddy qualified for Singapore again this year…

gonzalowski Says:

Ostapenko beat Mugu, at the end, 3 sets. The Latvian player defeats for the first time in its trajectory to the present number 1 of the WTA.
The Baltic was more resolutive in the decisive points, it seems.
