Finals rookies ready to rock in Singapore

Finals rookies ready to rock in Singapore

Halep said the result was that every match would be "like a final" in Singapore, where action gets underway at the Indoor Stadium on Sunday.

The women's tennis tour announced the annual honours on Friday.

A supremely unpredictable women's tennis season will culminate in fitting style at the elite WTA Finals, where seven out of eight players can win the trophy and also be crowned year-end world number one.

Muguruza beat Venus Williams in the Wimbledon final in July for her second Grand Slam title, becoming the first player to claim victories over the Williams sisters in major finals.

"It is important, I'm not going to lie, but I know I have to play well", Muguruza told reporters, when asked about returning to the top of the rankings. "But when I went home, I had all the friends, family close to me, and it was - I had some good dinners with them", she added.

Svitolina and Garcia have been drawn together in the Red Group and open their campaigns with respective round-robin matches against Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki and Romanian world number one Simona Halep on Monday.

"I know there are so many girls, players, that have the chance".

"We have the top eight players in the world, and everyone is playing insane tennis. I'm very, very happy that I did it this year". I think it's different. So I'm waiting to finish here to go to the holiday and then I will have a big party.

Garcia may have been the last player to qualify for Singapore following tournament triumphs in Wuhan and Beijing but the Frenchwoman will hope to continue enjoying success with the same formula that has led to an 11-match winning run.

Garbine Muguruza has been named the Women's Tennis Association's (WTA) Player of the Year after she reached No 1 in the rankings and beat Venus Williams to win Wimbledon.

Muguruza said the quality of players made it a very hard event to come away from as the victor. I am very proud to share such a special moment for our country with Rafael Nadal, the best role model I could ever have.
