That's why for me it was a little bit disappointing, and I was trying to stay very positive, because I was giving everything on the practice court and results were...not what I expected. I always try to be there for that challenge and although not everything worked in the first set, I fought back and that's what brought me to the win today.

Svitolina added: "I was clear with what I had to do on court".

"It's been a great week", said Stephens.

Prior to that Stephens hold, Pliskova's coach Rennae Stubbs had told her player: "This is all about courage now".

I do not want to pull the old one into the new season. "It's very, very special for everyone". In the second game, which Svitolina lost his serve in the Ukrainian three times played the break point (in total served 21 times). The Ukrainian had two opportunities to break Stephens' serve in the next game, but the latter saved the first break point with a forehand victor down the line and the second with a backhand cross-court victor.

In the final of the tournament the first racket of our country beat the sixth racket of the world ranking American Sloane Stephens- 3:6, 6:2, 6:2.

We will remind, in the third match at the tournament, Svitolina defeated Caroline Wozniacki.

She broke Stephens' serve to go up 3-1, only to get broken back.

She won three titles in the first half of the year, but after winning Rome she made just one semifinal, in Montreal.

Everything was decided when the score was 6:5 in favor of Svitolina in the 12th game.

The second set looked poised to follow a similar pattern as Pliskova made it eight games in a row, but Stephens finally stemmed the tide and broke when a rare errant forehand came off the racquet of the former world number one. Svitolina addressed the "haters" and those who commented that she had no right to be in this line-up by emerging from the group 3-0.

Svitolina has a complete baseline game - consistency has been her watch word for many years now and she can trade both with the power players and those with a little more precision and placement, thanks to her movement around the court, and more importantly her ability to smack winners on the run.

The Ukrainian advances to meet either versatile American Sloane Stephens or big-hitting Czech Karolina Pliskova, who were to face off later yesterday, in the final of the season-ending event being played in Singapore for a fifth and final time.
