"She did surprise me yesterday (on Thursday) with her win against (Garbine) Muguruza in two sets. For me, it was the last match of the season and I knew this, and I just was trying to get the win".
Simona Halep of Romania hits a return against Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark during the WTA Finals tennis tournament in Singapore on October 25, 2017. "But if I can win in two sets, I'm sure I would be just as happy about it, and my team would be even more".
The popular Dane will have a hand in who joins her come the weekend, however, for she takes on debutante Caroline Garcia, who produced some dazzling tennis to come back from a set and a break down and beat Elina Svitolina in a contest of high quality, 6-7 (7), 6-3, 7-5.
"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.
It was a stellar comeback from Garcia, who blew two chances to win the first set tie break. "A couple of times she looked done but she always came back", Garcia said.

In February, Winstead shared a photo with McGregor on her Instagram with the caption, 'Pretty lovely Canadian Sunday. Onlookers told the paper that they were together for more than an hour and left the cafe on McGregor's motorbike.
Halep would have moved into the last four in Singapore with a win over Elina Svitolina in the final round-robin match on Friday, but the top seed was beaten 6-3 6-4. Probably I would change, but it didn't happen.' Had expectations of playing in the WTA Finals been overwhelming? I think if I just could keep the ball in, I could have been much better.
Garcia capitalised and won four straight games en route to levelling the match, before outlasting Wozniacki in a tense third set.
It is a turn of events that Garcia herself did not consider, having started the day needing a victory that was not even a guarantee of survival. It will be very interesting for me if I make it through.
"On court I was obviously feeling nervous", she said. "It was an up-and-down match like the one we played in Beijing". Svitolina, who had lost her two previous Red Group encounters, blasted her way to a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Halep, ending both their campaigns.
"Unfortunately, I can not go back in time". "I mean, my game was completely off", she said.
