Singapore | Svitolina sends Halep home
The World No 1 met her match on Day 6 of BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global, and crashed out of the tournament.
Elina Svitolina shocked Simona Halep on Friday in straight sets, handing her friend, Caroline Garcia, a place in the semi finals on Saturday.
Svitolina, the World No 4 from Ukraine, was already eliminated after losing her first two matches but she took Halep down with her as she won 6-3 6-4 in 71 minutes.
Halep needed a victory to keep her campaign alive but the Romanian struggled to click into gear against a relaxed Svitolina at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
