Maria Sharapova is out of the WTA Finals, despite grabbing her first win in Singapore by beating Agnieszka Radwanska by two sets to one.

Maria Sharapova grabbed her first victory of the WTA Finals in Singapore by sealing a 7-5 6-7(4) 6-2 win over Agnieszka Radwanska, but has been eliminated from the competition.

The opening set was a scrappy affair with both players struggling to hold serve in the early stages, although Radwanska eventually managed to get a foothold on proceedings to edge ahead at 4-3.

Sharapova did well to break serve for a fourth time in the eighth game to level up, however, eventually going on to see out the set.

It looked to be a far more straightforward second set for the world number two, but after racing into a seemingly unassailable 5-1 lead, she let her guard slip with Radwanska taking it to a tie-break.

Despite blowing one set point the Polish pro held her nerve to take the match into a decider.

Sharapova managed to save two break points as games went by way of serve in the third set, and eventually found a break of her own, which was enough to clinch the contest.
