Wozniacki swats aside Halep to reach Singapore semis

Wozniacki swats aside Halep to reach Singapore semis”

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.

Caroline Wozniacki believes the round-robin format used at the WTA Finals has helped her relax into this year's tournament but finds it hard to explain the stunning form that has eased her into the semi-finals with a match to spare.

Caroline Garcia has been on a whirlwind ride that carried her into the WTA Finals.

Buffon to retire unless Juventus win Champions League
It was not enough to win in Europe and I hope that this year we can go one better, both with Juventus and the national team.

Garcia would not be in Singapore had she not saved a match point against Svitolina on her way to winning a second successive title at the China Open.

Wozniacki told BT Sport: "I felt like I played very well".

Wozniacki defeated world number four Elina Svitolina in her first match, prevailing with the same scoreline as she played some incredible tennis in front of the enthusiastic crowd.

Uncapped Mohammed Siraj, Shreyas Iyer picked for New Zealand T20Is
In his last 10 innings, 22-year-old Iyer has scored two centuries and three fifties of which two scores were above 80s. The selector made it clear that Nehra has been picked only for the first T20 after which will be retire.

The resounding win was Wozniacki's first success in Singapore and her victory was made all the easier for her ruthlessness on break point opportunities - the world No 6 converted every one of her five break points. I mean, I wish I knew what was happening today with my game, because even though it's 7-5 in the third - my game was completely off.

"I am really happy I can win the first match (as No 1)", said Halep, the first Romanian woman to be top-ranked. "I was more accurate". Obviously she got frustrated and I felt like I was doing everything just a little bit better. "So I just want to recover very well and be ready for my next match". She played well but I missed too much. I'm thinking about playing better than today. It looked as though nerves had first grappled with Garcia in the first set and it was a desolate Svitolina who struggled to find any answers to why one of the most consistent players this year has been all at sea. "I think that kind of motivates me to just start off strong and go for it". "Then she lost the belief or she tried to go a little bit more for it".

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.
