Caroline Wozniacki reversed course on a lopsided head-to-head with Elina Svitolina on Monday in Singapore to join Simona Halep at the top of the Red Group in the WTA Finals standings.

Singapore: No.1 Halep Rolls Past Upstart Garcia

The Dane’s 6-2, 6-0 drubbing of the Ukrainian was Wozniacki’s first win in four tries against Svitolina—she had dropped finals in Dubai and Toronto against her this season, winning just ten games on the process.

On Monday she turned the tables on the 23-year-old WTA Finals debutante by putting forth an aggressive and extremely clean performance. Wozniacki struck 16 winners against just five unforced errors, converted on all five of her break points and saved the only break point she faced to improve to 57-20 on the season.


Wozniacki won the final ten games of the match and will face today’s other winner, Simona Halep, in a battle of undefeated players on Wednesday.

Svitolina joins Jelena Ostapenko and Caroline Garcia as first-time qualifiers in Singapore that have yet to win a set. Ostapenko fell to Garbine Muguruza on Sunday while Garcia fell to Halep in Monday’s first match.
