WTA Finals: Wozniacki reaches semis

Halep defends her title of number 1 in Singapore

Coming into the encounter with an excellent win over Caroline Garcia in her opening Round Robin match, Halep put in a lackluster performance today and was simply unable to find the momentum on her groundstrokes.

Caroline Wozniacki produced an nearly flawless display to dismantle world number one Simona Halep 6-0 6-2 at the WTA Finals on Wednesday as the Dane eased into the semi-finals with her second dominant victory in as many matches.

"I can not say I handled it very well". On the other side, Svitolina has nothing to brag about after her mediocre tennis display from the previous round. "I felt comfortable and played aggressive when I needed to and ran the balls down when I needed to". "Everyone saw it. I didn't handle it very well at all", Garcia told reporters following the incident that seemed to trigger the comeback in her 6-7 (7) 6-3 7-5 victory over her Ukrainian opponent.

Garcia, therefore, has not been able to replicate his feat in the final of the tournament in Beijing at the beginning of October, where she beat Halep, who was then not yet officially no. 1 in the world, in three sets. A win would secure her place in the next round of play.

"Every time I go on court, I just want to be better than I have been two days ago or one day ago". I played a good game but it was too late.

Dane Paterson was the pick of South Africa's bowlers with three for 44, while Markram completed a memorable debut with two for 18. The visitors' response started poorly as Paterson removed Imrul Kaynes (1) and Lifton Das (6) inside the first four overs.

"So I know this was my chances, so I went for it. It was very hard, a lot of emotion, some up and down, but at the end I could control myself better than she did". "It's often like this and I tried to improve this part of myself".

Garcia lost her tournament opener to world number one Simona Halep on Monday and another defeat would have spelled the end of her interest in Singapore, yet somehow she battled back in the second set against Svitolina and did so again in the third. "I was also patient on the long rallies, and it made the difference".

"Did you see the backhand one hand?" I did it today.

"But it was, like, so many great rallies". "But this is not the most important thing for me at this time". [I hit] one [before].

It means Garcia, Svitolina and Halep will battle for the final semi-final position from the Red Group.
