Caroline Wozniacki routs top-ranked Simona Halep at 2017 WTA Finals

Posted October 26, 2017

Halep, who defends his place of no. 1 world in front of the crowd of pretenders, does not leave much margin of manoeuvre to Garcia, no. 9 world and last qualified, that it has beaten in two sets 6-4, 6-2. Halep finally seemed to get on the scoreboard after she earned her first game point in the match, but Wozniacki was just too solid as she sealed the first set 6-0 against the current top-ranked player.

It was a bitter disappointment for Halep after an impressive opening victory over Caroline Garcia.

"I thought I played really well out there", Wozniacki said.

Also, Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark, the 2010 runner-up, never surrendered in beating Elina Svitolina of Ukraine 6-2, 6-0 for the first time in four matchups.

Czech star Karolína Plíšková is assured of a semi-final place after two wins, but she will aim to secure top spot when she plays Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko, with the French Open champion unable to advance after consecutive defeats. Again I question if Svitolina is 100 percent or if fatigue / injury is preventing her from playing to the level we've seen for much of the year.

"I can not say I handled it very well".

"I just have to calm down and keep the ball in play more and make my opponent run".

"I feel like I'm back where I'm supposed to be".

However, Halep quickly grew in confidence and she gained a decisive break in the ninth game of the match, thanks in part to two costly double faults from the French player, and secured the opening set with a precise backhand victor. Halep looked downright very bad in her last match, winning just 29 percent of her return points and 44 percent of her total service points. "Also I did some good shots, good points, and I missed too many to win a match".

It means Garcia, Svitolina and Halep will battle for the final semi-final position from the Red Group. "I think that kind of motivates me to just start off strong and go for it".

Another forehand error handed Wozniacki a match point after a little more than an hour, which she duly converted with a forehand victor.

The 24-year-old said: "I'm very happy about the fight I showed on court". I tried to be even more aggressive, tried to use down-the-line, and I was more and more accurate and I went for it on the good shots.
