Garcia interviews herself at the WTA Finals in Singapore

Halep defends her title of number 1 in Singapore

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. "Also, the court is a little bit slow and I just felt heavy", she added.

The 26-year-old now finds herself in a battle to reach the semi-finals, and next plays Elina Svitolina in a crunch match on Friday.

Wozniacki came into the match firing and she opened the match with a confident service hold, carrying her momentum over from her first win.

Caroline Wozniacki is a former runner-up at the WTA Finals.

"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).

"I was thinking, what's happening?" Halep looked downright bad in her last match, winning just 29 percent of her return points and 44 percent of her total service points.

Those back-to-back titles gave her a huge burst which allowed her to break into the top 10 for the first time while simultaneously secured her the last available slot in Singapore. "I did some good shots, good points, and I missed too many to win a match".




The second was more competitive but Halep struggled to contain both the brilliance of her opponent and her own negativity and succumbed rather meekly.

"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".

"I'm happy, super happy to have won the first match in the first tournament that I compete in quality to no. 1 in world", was delighted, for its part, Halep.

"Every time I go on court, I just want to be better than I have been two days ago or one day ago". 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.

Garcia would win the group if she overcomes Wozniacki and Svitolina triumphs over Halep, although the French player can not finish second under any circumstances.

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