Singapore | Wozniacki stuns Venus

Caroline Wozniacki won her first true major in Singapore, sweeping aside Venus Williams in straight sets to win the WTA Finals. Eight players, the best of 2017, battled each other for over the week and, at the last, it was the popular Dane who was the last woman standing. The No 6 seed moved past the 5th-seeded Williams, 6-4 6-4, to claim the title at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global on Sunday, besting her runner-up finish in 2010. Seven times before, Wozniacki had been trounced by her American opponent, winning just one set in all...

Singapore | Wozniacki wins through to final

Caroline Wozniacki proved yet again what an extraordinary competitor she is on a tennis court by beating Czech Karolina Pliskova 7-6(9) 6-3 on Saturday evening in Singapore.

It took nerves of steel in a see-saw match against the year’s best server on the WTA Tour, but Wozniacki was up to the task and strung enough together to pull off the victory at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. The world No 6 is making a return to the final of...

Singapore | Garcia wins thriller

The dark horse, a late-comer to the WTA Finals, pulled off a thrilling win over Caroline Wozniacki to keep her hopes alive of qualifying for the semi-final knockout stage of the competition. The other Caroline, France’s Garcia, was one game from defeat in her last two matches and on Day 6 she seemed down and out after a first-set whitewash at the hands of the Dane, who had dropped just four games in Singapore in her previous two outings. Garcia, however, kept her hopes alive with a stunning fightback in their final round-robin match in the Red Group of...

Singapore | Wozniacki blitzes Halep – Garcia edges Svitolina

Caroline Wozniacki went into her Day 4 match holding the edge over Simona Halep, having won three of their five matches and took three minutes over the hour to extend her record to four. While the former World No1 prevailed in Dubai in 2012, Stuttgart in 2015 and Eastbourne earlier this year, the current World No1 had won at New Haven in 2013 and Dubai two years later. Rather like Garbiñe Muguruza the day before, Halep didn’t really turn up and was a shadow of the player who opened proceedings in the Red Group on Monday. The Dane had...
