Karolina Pliskova and Elina Svitolina secure place at WTA Finals


Tennis players Karolina Pliskova and Elina Svitolina today secured the last two spots at WTA Finals, although no players have won their respective games.

Fifth place in the WTA ranking, Czech Pliskova lost to veteran Russian Vera Zvonareva 6-1 and 6-2 in the Moscow tournament, giving the Ukrainian Svitolina, the sixth in the world ranks, the chance to secure a place in the tournament that brings together the eight best tennis players of the season.

The Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens, eliminated by Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich in the last 16 in Moscow, could also be part of the 2018 edition of the WTA Finals, as number one in the world ranking, the Romanian Simona Halep, is in doubt for the tournament due to a back injury.
