Spain’s Garbine Muguruza beat Estonia’s Anett Kontaveit 6-3, 7-5 to win the WTA Finals title for the first time in her career.
Officials gave no reason for the world no 1's decision to pull out of WTA India Wells singles’ draw, which was already suffering from the absence of several top-ranked players, including Naomi Osaka and Serena Williams.
Naomi Osaka has withdrawn from the WTA Finals because of a right shoulder injury ahead of her scheduled round-robin match against top-ranked Ash Barty.
After dominating the first set tiebreak, Barty broke the big-serving Pliskova in a 12-minute game to open the second set.
