  • Caroline Wozniacki | WTA Finals 2017 Singapore

Things looked bleak for France's Garcia when she failed to register a single game in the opening set of her final round-robin contest but she then found her range to run out a 0-6 6-3 7-5 victor in Singapore. "I'm happy that when the battle is on, I'm fighting and I find a way to come back". "It means a lot to me, and I was playing today for them".

Garcia recovered from a desperate first set to beat Wozniacki 0-6 6-3 7-5, and then had to wait for the result of the final round-robin match in Singapore. She was runner-up in 2010 and has made two further semi-finals, but unlike Pliskova, she will not know whether she finishes top of her group or second until the final two matches are concluded on Friday.

Garcia was the last woman to qualify after an impressive surge through Asia, where she picked up back-to-back Premier titles in Wuhan and Beijing, having arrived in Tokyo, where she made the quarters the week before, ranked No20.

The 26-year-old said: "Of course, I did everything I could and I wanted to win it, but it just didn't happen. Yes, it is a hard experience, but one I wanted, and now it's another battle against Caroline [Wozniacki]".

"I will not let this tournament ruin everything I built this year", she told reporters after the match.

Man Ke Aangan, Patita , Karishma were some of the Hindi films that the director directed in the 70s and 80s. Later on, he worked on Avalude Ravukal that was categorised as a classic and also have the remake in Hindi.

Halep finished the match with 22 winners against 19 unforced errors.

Wozniacki is now 2-0 at the season-ending tournament, while Halep is 1-1. She not only needs to beat a Wozniacki playing at her relentless and precision best but must hope that Svitolina bounces back to beat Halep. "She played really well, and she deserved to win". Yeah, just like this week - of course, I was expecting a better week, better tennis from my side, but unfortunately everything goes wrong this week, everything.

The Romanian needed victory over World No 4 Elina Svitolina to reach the semifinals but suffered a 6-3, 6-4 defeat in 71 minutes at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Friday.

"There is no such a thing as a comfortable player on tour, especially at this tournament", Svitolina said of her success against Halep this year.
