Garbine Muguruza continued her dream debut at the WTA Finals by completing round robin play with a perfect 3-0 record to advance to the semifinals after a hard fought 6-4, 4-6, 7-5 victory over Petra Kvitova Friday.Kvitova sent down back-to-back aces to ensure Muguruza would need to serve for the set and the world No. 3 duly obliged to claim the set she needed to ensure she would at least advance from the pool as a top 2 finisher.The second set turned into a war of attrition as both players coughed up point after point on their fragile second serves to exchange six breaks in the first seven games before Muguruza ended the sequence to hold in the eighth.The second match followed a similar pattern to the first as both players struggled in an early exchange that saw Safarova edge ahead by getting the better of three consecutive breaks and she rode the advantage all the way to a one-set lead.
