Karolína to Face Stephens in Singapore Semifinals
Sloane Stephens will be Karolína’s semifinal opponent at the WTA Finals in Singapore, after winning the Red group.
During the week, Stephens managed to beat all her rivals – Naomi Osaka, Kiki Bertens as well as Angelique Kerber – while losing just two sets.
Karolína has played against the current world No. 6 three times and managed to win only the last of the encounters – at the Masters event on clay in Madrid.
On hard surface the players met only once, in Beijing in 2015. Stephens won then in straight sets.

2018, Madrid, clay 6-2, 6-3
2015, Beijing, hard 3-6, 2-6
2012, Wimbledon, grass 2-6, 2-6
