Elina Svitolina strikes back to seal BNP Paribas WTA Finals title

Stephens fights back to beat Pliskova in see-saw Singapore semi

Sloane Stephens was disappointed but proud with her performance in Singapore after the American started well before fading to a 3-6 6-2 6-2 defeat by Ukraine's Elina Svitolina in the WTA Finals title match on Sunday.

Stephens, who is going to play her first final in Singapore, also expressed her happiness as she has outshined some great players in the tournament. This means the world to me.

"Whether people want to believe it or not, they want to say, "Oh, you didn't do this, you didn't do that", but like I said before, it only matters how you feel and how you think you have done. And to have it is my personality", the 24-year-old added. "The third set really showed that I was mentally tough".

Making her debut at the season-ending championship, Stephens ended pool play with a spotless 3-0 Red Group record and eased past Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber in the semis before coming up short in the final.

There was very little to choose between the players as the match proceeded and it was Svitolina's turn to make the initial breakthrough in the second set when she capitalized on untidy play from Stephens to edge a break ahead.

Stephens endured a surprisingly bad start against Karolina Pliskova, eating up a first set bagel and a breakdown in the second, before recovering to win 0-6, 6-4,6-1.
