World No 1 Simona Halep went out of the WTA Finals in Singapore yesterday after losing to Elina Svitolina in the last round-robin match.

Halep needed to beat the Ukrainian to advance out of her group with Caroline Wozniacki, but went down 6-3 6-4 and will now head home.

Furthermore, she will lose her crown as the world’s best if Karolina Pliskova wins the title on Sunday.

Halep’s defeat means that in-form Caroline Garcia joins Wozniacki in the final four to carry on her amazing end-of-season run.

Garcia still had a nervous wait to see if she progressed but after Svitolina, playing with the freedom of a player who already knew she was heading home, was too good for Halep, it meant that Garcia ended up topping the group.

That set up a semi-final against Venus Williams while Pliskova lies in wait for Wozniacki.
