Garcia interviews herself at the WTA Finals in Singapore

Simona Halep of Romania hits a return against Caroline Garcia of France during the WTA Finals tennis tournament in Singapore

The Dane is now virtually assured of a semi-finals berth after losing just four games in two matches, while Halep lives to fight another day after her opening straight sets victory over Caroline Garcia gives her a 1-1 record in the Red Group.

The spotlight will be on the first rubber where Simona Halep and Caroline Wozniacki will be fighting for a ticket in the semis.

"I'm happy, super happy to have won the first match in the first tournament that I compete in quality to no. 1 in world", was delighted, for its part, Halep.

"So maybe next round I have just to calm down and keep the ball in play more and make the opponent run".

Garcia would win the group if she overcomes Wozniacki and Svitolina triumphs over Halep, although the French player can not finish second under any circumstances.

Halep had been as much a spectator as the stunned crowd packed into the Singapore Indoor Stadium and although she tried to rouse herself after getting to 30-30 in the first game of the second set, Wozniacki held firm for a 1-0 lead.

"I feel like I'm back where I'm supposed to be".

"The loss of the first set was very hard because I had some chances and some set points, but sometimes you have to just let it go and keep going".

"I think I played really well", Wozniacki told reporters after her ruthless dismantling of Halep. Halep's forehand looked impressive early on and she looked on course to get on the scoreboard, but a pivotal net cord victor at 0-1 30-30 by the Dane earned her a break point, which she converted after the Romanian sent a drive volley straight into the net. "I'll try to forget this day and try to play my next game as if nothing had happened", said the Ukrainian, dépitée.

All three players making their WTA Finals debut - Garcia, Svitolina, Jelena Ostapenko - lost their first round-robin matches in straight sets. "Also I did some good shots, good points, and I missed too many to win a match". It looked as though nerves had first grappled with Garcia in the first set and it was a desolate Svitolina who struggled to find any answers to why one of the most consistent players this year has been all at sea. Today was such a battle, so I'm very happy to be through with a win.

"Everything I have in my head, I need to shake it off and play better next round". Even if you lose the first match, you still have a chance to go through. "Also, the court is a little bit slow and I just felt heavy", she added.
