conceded just eight points in a
20-minute opening set, and broke
Melzer for a fourth time at 4-4
in the second set.

of Serbia, who converted his only
break point in the final set to com-
plete a 4-6, 7-6 (5), 7-5 comeback
win over Kevin Anderson of South
Africa. Also, 2011 champion Jo-

Kerber beats Halep to
go 2-0 at WTA Finals
Kerber is the only player in the WTA
Finals Red Group to stand at 2-0 in
the round-robin stage after a 6-4, 6-
2 win over Simona Halep yesterday.
Madison Keys, who needed to win
her match to stay in semifinal con-
tention, prevailed 6-1, 6-4 in which
she never offered Dominika Cibulkova
a break point opportunity.
Keys has won all four matches she s
played against Cibulkova without drop-
ping a set.
"It s a huge thing, especially for me
as it makes you a little bit more com-
fortable when you re not facing break
points," Keys said.
All four players in the Red Group
remain in the hunt for a semifinal berth.
In the standings, Kerber is at 2-0,
Halep and Keys are 1-1, and Cibulkova
0-2. This year marks Keys and Cibulko-
va s WTA Finals debut.
Tomorrow, Kerber plays Keys, and
Halep plays Cibulkova in the final
"It s good because you still have a
third chance," Cibulkova said. "Knowing
this, that I can still go into semifinals,
match against Halep."
Kerber, playing steady and precise
tennis, allowed Halep to take all the
risks. She posted 11 winners and 16
unforced errors to 24 winners and 35
unforced errors for Halep, who is 1-1.
"I m feeling very, very good here,"
Kerber said. "I m very happy to win my
second match here and to be playing
some of my best tennis."
Kerber is 4-4 against Halep, but has
won four of their five meetings this sea-
son --- the most matches played between
any two players this year.
Kerber is making her fourth appear-
ance at the WTA Finals, but the German
has never gotten beyond the round-
robin stage. (AP)
