Thursday at the 2017 BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global featured the last batch of the White Group matches. Jelena Ostapenko made sure not to leave Singapore winless, beating qualified semifinalist Karolina Pliskova in a dead rubber 6-3 6-1, while Venus Williams booked her spot in the final four by edging Garbine Muguruza 7-5 6-4 in the second match of the day. Our photographer Jimmie48 covered both these encounters, as well as press conferences and doubles quarterfinal victory of Yung-Jan Chan and Martina Hingis‘ over Kveta Peshke and Anna-Lena Groenefeld. Note that Hingis is playing her last tournament this week!

I’m so sad that it will be Martina’s last tournament. I hope she wins with Yung Jan (Latisha) Chan because they are really steaming hot the last few weeks.
