Garcia then won the first five games of the second set before sealing the win over No. 1 seed Pliskova on her serve, winning the match in one hour, 47 minutes.
Garcia extended to 6-2 her record in tour-level finals and clinched the fifth title in a row after the defeats to Timea Bacsinszky in Acapulco and Monterrey in 2015.
Naturally, the set went to a tiebreak, where Pliskova dominated with huge forehands to race to a 5-1 lead.

Now in eighth place in the race to Singapore, the Czech will have to wait out the results from next week's tournaments in Luxembourg and Moscow to see if she qualifies for one of the two remaining spots.
Garcia destabilizes her opponent to save a set point sending a flashy forehand return, but she missed the first opportunity to seal the set at 7-6 after her routine top-spin down the line forehand flew well long.
"I was a little bit more aggressive than her, and I think that's what made the difference in the first set", the 24-year-old Garcia said.
It marks the first final for Garcia since she won back-to-back titles at Wuhan and Beijing past year.
The Tianjin title is the sixth of Garcia's career.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
