Karolina Pliskova charged into the final of the Tianjin Open and further boosted her hopes of making the WTA Finals with an emphatic 6-2 6-1 triumph over Timea Bacsinszky on Saturday. But when serving at 5-3 with the set on her racket, Pliskova hit two backhand errors, and suddenly, it was 5-5.
Second seed Garcia cruised past Taiwan's Hsieh Su-Wei 6-3 6-4 to move into her first final since lifting back-to-back titles in Wuhan and Beijing a year ago.
With momentum on her side, Garcia broke Pliskova's serve twice to claim her first WTA title since her back-to-back triumphs in Wuhan and Beijing previous year.
After both players held their serves in a tight first set, world No. 16 Garcia fought from 1-5 down to edge the decisive tiebreak 9-7.
The Frenchwoman looked more solid and assured as she had to save two consecutive break points.
In-form Wang had earlier progressed through her rain-delayed match against top seed Elina Svitolina, before then regrouping to defeat Garbine Muguruza in three sets, 6-7 (5/7) 6-4 7-5. However, she was made to wait a little longer for her victory and secured the title with her sixth ace of the match.
