Wozniacki Beats Williams in Tennis WTA Finals, Singapore
Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki landed the biggest title of her career when she won the WTA Final in Singapore this weekend. She beat Venus Williams in the final 6-4, 6-4, beating all tennis betting odds, to claim the title and looked delighted afterwards, celebrating her victory.
Wozniacki is the WTA Finals, Singapore winner
Williams went into the final as the oldest player to ever compete in the final at 37, but gave as good as she got against the Dane. The first set was very tight, with Wozniacki making a timely breakthrough to take it 6-4. However, the second set was very different, Wozniacki went into a clear 5-0 lead and the game looked to be all but over. But we all knew Venus wouldn’t lay down and take a humiliating defeat, and she fought back, winning four straight games, making it 5-4 and putting doubt in the mind of Wozniacki. She managed to overcome that though, and Denmark’s Wozniacki won the final set 6-4 to clinch the title.
A Return to Form for Wozniacki
This is a welcome return for Wozniacki, who really struggled to play last season due to injuries, something which made her slip down to 74th in the rankings. However, this year has been all about character and bouncing back, with this victory being the pinnacle of what has been a great season.
After slipping down the rankings, before building her way back up to the top of the game, next season will be all about maintaining her position for Wozniacki. She has the ability to win more titles and will want to show the whole tennis world she is back, and at just 27 years old she has time on her side to do so.
Halep Ends 2017 as World Number 1
As we approach the end of 2017, Simona Halep has already clinched the top spot, and she will definitely end 2017 as the world number one, even though some tennis betting tips suggested otherwise. She is the 13th woman to do so since rankings began and she took her place at the top at the beginning of October.
Her nearest challenger was Karolina Pliskova, but after she lost in Saturday’s semi-final to Wozniacki, she could no longer catch the Romanian Halep. That will give Halep something to build on looking forward to 2018 as she looks to win her first grand slam event. She has finished runner-up at the French Open twice, including in 2017 and will be desperate to land her first grand slam title.
She should go into the new season full of confidence after finishing top of the rankings, and is a player to watch in 2018.
