Sloane Stephens qualifies for first WTA finals

Sloane Stephens qualifies for first WTA finals

In such circumstances some players might have ended their season early, but Halep said she had been determined to push herself to the limit.

Romanian tennis star Simona Halep has retained her top spot for the second consecutive year in the 2018 Women's Tennis Association (WTA) singles ranking.

'I'm doing physio to try to make (my back) stronger, but I haven't practised 100 percent yet, ' Halep added.

"I was very focused on what I have to do on court, I was working hard every day, I was very motivated all the year, I did not let the time fly just without putting my work into the game", she said.

The fifth racket of the world Elina Svitolina might be outside the list of the participants of the Final of the WTA tournament in Singapore. "I have already three-four days getting ready for this tournament", Halep said.

The book, which Mr Hawking was working on at the time of his death, is titled "Brief Answers to Big Questions". If the human race manages to redesign itself, it will probably spread out and colonise other planets and stars.

Halep became the 10th tennis player who managed at least two years in a row to finish the season in the status of the first racket of the world.

"But if I will not be able to play here, I'm very doubtful that I will be able to play in Singapore because it's very fast".

Both Pliskova and Bertens could move in front of Svitolina with good runs in Moscow, but she will qualify if either does not. "So I don't know now, but for sure I will take a decision for my health first".

Halep has played in 15 tournaments so far in 2018, but she followed up her first major title by losing in the third round at Wimbledon.

Her US Open title defense gone with the wind when Anastasija Sevastova defeated her in the quarters and she managed to win only two matches during the Asian swing.
