Lucie qualifies for the WTA Singles Finals
With 7 players already qualified for the WTA Finals , we had to wait until the last minute to know if Lucie would get the very last spot for Singapore … as her participation depended on the result of Carla Suarez Navarro at the Kremplin Cup.
As Carla lost her quaterfinal, Lucie is now officially part of the elite 8 and will make her debut appearance in Singapore. She will join Simona Halep, Garbine Muguruza, Maria Sharapova, Petra Kvitova, Agnieszka Radwanska, Angelique Kerber and Flavia Pennetta.
“I am really excited to qualify for the WTA Finals for the first time. It has been a dream year and to be one of the eight qualifiers in singles and also compete in the doubles is something that makes me very proud. There have already been so many highlights this year, and I hope to finish it playing some more great tennis in front of the amazing Singapore crowd.” Lucie said in reaction to the news.
Indeed, 2015 has been the best season of her career : she was the champion in Doha and reached both finals of the French Open and New Haven. Last september, she broke into the top 5.
