Halep defends her title of number 1 in Singapore

Halep serves up a treat

The most important thing is to win the matches that I play here.

Caroline Wozniacki became the first player to secure her place in the semi-finals of the Women's Tennis Association Finals in Singapore, after she cruised past world number one Simona Halep. The wall that the Dane often puts up at the back of the court, thanks to her stunning defence, is proving as impenetrable as ever here.

"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". I thought I played really well out there.

"The loss of the first set was very hard because I had some chances and some set points, but sometimes you have to just let it go and keep going. 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.

"I think playing the top players in the world means you have to play your best level to beat anyone here", the 27-year-old added. "I was more accurate".

Elina Svitolina is coming off a three sets loss to Caroline Garcia that took 34 games to decide. It'll be interesting to see if Svitolina is motivated to finish this tournament with a strong showing after the outcome of her first two matches.

The second set continued in favour of Halep as the Madrid Open champion in the third game of the second set before she fought off three break points on her serve to consolidate her advantage and confidently closed out the match to secure victory in her maiden match as the world No 1.

Garcia is in the form of her career having won successive titles in Wuhan and Beijing to claim the final spot for the WTA Finals at the last possible opportunity.

National Anthem To Be Stopped Playing Inside The Cinema Halls?
Worse than that is, people entering the cinema hall after the anthem was played just to avoid standing up. People go to theatres for "undiluted entertainment" and no such order can be thrust upon them, it said.

"Yeah, just like this week - of course, I was expecting better week, better tennis from my side, but unfortunately everything goes wrong this week, everything".

Wozniacki came into the match firing and she opened the match with a confident service hold, carrying her momentum over from her first win. "It's often like this and I tried to improve this part of myself".

"I knew this was my last chance, so I went for it. I was patient on the long rallies, and it makes the difference". [I hit] one [before].
