Halep crushes Garcia at WTA Finals

Oct 24, 2017-

World No 1 Simona Halep delivered an ominous warning to her rivals at the WTA Finals with a crushing, straight-sets victory over the in-form Caroline Garcia on Monday. In her opening round robin match at the eight-player season finale, Halep halted Garcia’s 11-match winning streak with a 6-4, 6-2 masterclass in 88 minutes at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. It was sweet revenge for the recently crowned world No 1 from Romania, who lost to France’s Garcia in this month’s China Open final in Beijing. Garcia, the world number eight, had secured the last spot for Singapore after winning back-to-back titles in Wuhan and Beijing, but she was thoroughly outclassed in her debut WTA Finals match.
