MATCH OF THE DAY

In terms of stature, the match between Krejcikova and Muguruza is the one to watch out for, but Pliskova and Kontaveit could put on a better show. Kontaveit could be the surprise package of the whole tournament.
Having scraped qualification as the number eight seed, the Estonian has now won 11 consecutive matches, while the experienced Pliskova, playing at her fifth WTA Finals, is in good shape. This could be where the real battle is.
