Caroline Wozniacki secures semifinals spot at 2017 WTA Finals
Oct 26, 2017, 00:54
The Dane's victory margin assured her of a last-four berth after the loss of four games in two matches while Halep lives to fight another day with her opening straight-sets win over Caroline Garcia giving her a 1-1 record in the Red Group. Few players rely on a fast start more than Halep, as she gets down on herself way too easily and allows her frustration to impact the rest of the match.
Although the rollercoaster contest took another turn as Garcia was twice broken in the third set and Svitolina had the chance to serve the match out at 5-4.
"I really played well, I served well, and I have always been aggressive", is satisfied with the Danish after his performance in this game where it committed only 5 unforced errors and converted all of his break balls (5 on 5).
Meanwhile, Wozniacki also secured a straight-sets victory in her opening round-robin encounter by seeing off Elina Svitolina 6-2 6-0 in a mere 58 minutes.
Her familiarity with the tournament coupled with the fact she has won more matches on the WTA Tour this season than any other player has enabled Wozniacki to enjoy playing in Singapore rather than fearing her rivals. I didn't feel the ball, I don't know why.
"The defeat was a blow to Halep's hopes of finishing the year ranked number one, and she said on wtatennis.com: "I think it was one of my bad days. So I just want to recover very well and be ready for my next match". "I did some good shots, good points, and I missed too many to win a match". Obviously she got frustrated and I felt like I was doing everything just a little bit better.
Elina Svitolina is coming off a three sets loss to Caroline Garcia that took 34 games to decide. "It was a battle on every single point, and I'm just happy to be through". Svitolina has lost four of her last five matches on hard court. "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.
In obvious contrast, Garcia latched back on to the self-belief she had in her run up to the tournament - two big wins on her side, and there was of course no shame to losing to the World No. 1 in her opening round.
