Sources in Switzerland confirm Basic Linda has removed Basic Lina from her Christmas card list. Assuming Serena won't play YEC, the field is pretty much set. Unless Bencic wins Linz or begs for Moscow wild card and picks up necessary points there.

Thanks for sending the other girl to Zhuhai, Bertens. Svitolina should at some arsenal to her game, waiting for errors won't cut it.

Bertens useful for once this year, takes the weak era thriver out.

With Eli’s pigeon Barty Party waiting in the next round she must be furious.

Bitter sweet result, BB’s YEC chances take a further dent

Aww, RIP Elina! I must say, impressive from Bertens to put together this run when she needed it the most! She's been clutch in TBs which has been the main factor this tournament. Every match she has had to play a TB which she won.

Bertens-Barty should be great. They've had some close matches in the past.

Serena won't play and Halep will play one match at most, so they're all gonna get there. Elina, Kiki, and Belinda.

When Keeks is calm and playing freely (without pre-match pressure) she is a delight.





puts out all her skillz into display — even a bit of serve and volleying

I believe Halep's situation has been exaggarated. Reportedly, it's different kind of back injury and she would have had almost a month of rest before her first match, so should be fine. Simo actually is fine against non bashers, which was evident in her beating Peterson 1 & 1 but had no interested in competing against ultra aggressive Alexandrova.

Halep would need to be on a death bed to miss YEC for 2nd straight year. So Belinda will have to settle for Elite Trophy without actual elite players of particular season.

Anybody knows who came up with this lame name for a tournament when actual elite is playing different event a week later?

Wow! :hearts: Months of struggling and suddenly in a PM SF. What a surprising resurrection of her Shenzhen run. :eek:

If she can make the final, which will be tough against Ash, she could even avoid the horribly anxious tournament hopping from here to Shenzhen to find some extra desperate points. But already a nice little lead now over Belinda.

Svitolina has been bad against top 10 players this year. She has only 1 top 10 win this year (Keys). Meanwhile in the previous two years she was getting a lot of top 10 wins. Not sure what happened this year to her, it's been a very strange - not even one final so far.
Injury upon injury (neck, knee...)after that horrible diet of hers. At least she won YEC.
