Following the 2018 BNP Paribas WTA Finals in Singapore will be the second tier year-end tournament, the WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai. The tournament features 12 of the top players on the tour.
The players are split into four groups of three, with the group winners advancing to the single elimination semifinals. The player field features our 2017 Volvo Car Open champion, Daria Kasatkina and two Volvo Car Open finalists, Julia Goerges (2018) and Madison Keys (2015). Kasakina and Goerges will both be entering the event with some additional confidence as they both recently won titles.
It was a week to remember for Kiki Bertens at the 2018 Volvo Car Open.
After saving a match point early Saturday afternoon in a Titanic tussle with Madison Keys, the No. 12 seed from The Netherlands dropped just three games in a scorching championship match, beating Julia Goerges 6-2, 6-1 for the title.
Playing two matches on Sunday after a rain-soaked Saturday, the team of Alla Kudryavtseva and Katarina Srebotnik won both on the last day of the Volvo Car Open to capture the doubles crown.
Kudryavtseva/Srebotnik beat Andreja Klepac and Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez 6-3, 6-3 inside Volvo Car Stadium after taking out Kateryna Bondarenko and Aleksandra Krunic earlier in the day in the semifinals.
Championship Sunday always brings about world-class WTA tennis in Charleston, but with it also arrives thoughts of, “Wait! That all happened so fast!”
The same goes for the 2018 edition of the Volvo Car Open, which has whizzed by in a blur of on-court action, special events away from it and inspiring storylines along the way.
Kiki Bertens saved a match point on Sunday afternoon to beat American hope Madison Keys 6-4, 6-7(2), 7-6(5) in a nearly three-hour semifinal to book her place in the Volvo Car Open final.
It’s there that she’ll face Julia Goerges, the German, who took out Anastasija Sevastova 7-6(5), 6-3.
Sunday is set to be a busy day of tennis. You can say that several times over.
After storms wiped out the majority of Saturday’s Volvo Car Open and men’s legends play, the schedule is chock full of world-class action from morning until the early evening, when we’ll crown three new Charleston champions once again.
For Julia Goerges, the fifth time is the charm.
Making her fifth appearance at the Volvo Car Open, the 29-year-old German advanced to the semifinals in Charleston for the first tim in her career. Friday afternoon she ended the eight-match winning streak of defending champion Daria Kasatkina here, winning 6-4, 6-3 to book a spot in the final four.
A lot has changed in the three years since Madison Keys last made the Volvo Car Open final in 2015. But one thing has stayed the same: She still plays ball-bashing, power-laden tennis.
On Saturday Keys, the 23-year-old American, looks to make her second final here in four years, set to play the equally-powerful Kiki Bertens in one of two of Saturday’s semifinals.
