World No.2 and Wimbledon champion Garbiñe Muguruza started her campaign to win her first year-ending championship with a decisive opening victory, dispatching No.7 seed Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia, 6-3, 6-4, at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global on Sunday.

"She’s a very aggressive player," Muguruza said of Ostapenko in her press conference. "Ostapenko had an incredible run this year, and she has the confidence, that’s what makes her even more dangerous. I knew going into the match that she could play unbelievable, so I kind of went in prepared."

In a hard-hitting affair, solid returning by both players was the order of the day, but Muguruza held onto early leads in both sets to advance. Muguruza jumps to a 1-0 record in the White Group along with No.3 seed Karolina Pliskova, who dismissed No.5 seed Venus Williams earlier.
