Seven in running for top ranking at WTA Finals

Seven in running for top ranking at WTA Finals”

Halep, Muguruza and Pliskova are Sky Bet's 9/2 co-favourites for the title, with Halep 13/8 to win her group.

Muguruza is only the second Spanish woman after Arantxa Sanchez Vicario to reach number one and by claiming the Wimbledon title became the first player to beat both Serena and Venus Williams in major finals, having beaten Serena to win the 2016 French Open.

The power-packed pool, full of aggressive players armed with big serves, will open proceedings Sunday when Pliskova faces 2008 WTA Finals champion Williams, before Muguruza takes on Latvia's Ostapenko at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Halep will also have revenge in mind when she faces Garcia for the second time in three weeks after the Frenchwoman beat her in the China Open final in Beijing, a day after the Romanian became the 25th woman to climb to the top of the WTA rankings.

Garbine Muguruza has been named the WTA Tour player of the year. And yet I'm telling you that at the WTA Finals in Singapore she will not be among the favorites.

This season the Ukrainian won Taipei against Peng Shuai, Dubai against Caroline Wozniacki, Instanbul against Elise Mertens, Rome against Simona Halep and the Rogers Cup again against Wozniacki.

Halep said although the White group got the attention, the Red group would be tough as well.

During the event each player will play the others in their group, with the top two in each going through to a semi-final and then the final. The awards are voted on by members of the media.

The 37-year-old has enjoyed a brilliant season in the twilight of her career, losing the Australian Open final to pregnant sister Serena in January, before falling to Muguruza after navigating a tough path to the Wimbledon title match.
