The Camellia group at the WTA Finals in China took an interesting turn after No. 9 seed Caroline Garcia defeated Madison Keys in two straight sets. This upset can be regarded as one of the most unexpected turns in the tournament.
Madison Keys is struggling due to her poor form since the last tournament. At the Guadalajara Open in Mexico, she lost to World No. 42 Emma Navarro in two straight sets. Since the start of this tournament, she has lost two games in a row.
Aside from this, Caroline Garcia is continuing her excellent form and won her game against Keys in a dominant manner. In the upcoming days, she will face Beatriz Haddad Maia who is still unbeatable in the tournament.
This upset in the finals has already ensured that Keys is the first player out of the tournament. This is the most disappointing performance by a player seeded second in the history of the WTA Finals.
Garcia dominated the match against the Keys with 20 winners and unforced errors. The match between Garcia and Beatriz will be a decider, as the winner will directly advance to the semifinals as the group winner.
