World No. 1 Simona Halep started her first tournament as women's tennis top-ranked player with a 6-4 6-2 win over Caroline

Halep serves up a treat

With that win Wozniacki qualifies for the semi-finals, and is rightly feeling quite confident of her game.

Former WTA Finals finalist Caroline Wozniacki made things look very easy as she blasted past World No. 1 Simona Halep for the loss of just two games. 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 "I think it was one of my bad days".

"I don't know really how I can rate it, but I think both the other match and this match today I think both I played on a really high level".

"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).

The decider followed a similar pattern to the second set with Svitolina keeping her nose ahead until Garcia fought back through a barrage of winners to reel off the last four games and seal her first WTA Finals victory. A win would secure her place in the next round of play. "It was a battle on every single point, and I'm just happy to be through". "You come into the tournament knowing that you can easily go 0-3 in the group, and if you don't play your best tennis, and sometimes even if you play great, you can still leave the tournament not having won a match".

All three women have a chance of joining Wozniacki in the last four, with Halep in the marginally stronger position.

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.

When her back was against the wall, there were some unbelievable shots coming from the Frenchwoman, including a nifty one-handed backhand - which was quite the favourite.

"But it was, like, so many great rallies". So it's my second one.
