Garcia looked untouchable in the first set and for much of the second, blasting 30 winners and breaking Pliskova's serve three times en route to the 6-1, 7-6 (2) victory.
"In the end it got too dark to go for 6.15 meters and I felt it was unsafe to continue any further," said the world silver medalist. "I felt I was in the zone. But you have to be prudent."

It was a bizarre way for the Frenchman to lose the jersey which he had kept for three days after winning the stage two.
