Wozniacki will be the top-ranked player in Singapore this year after world number one Simona Halep, who the Dane beat to claim the Australian Open title, withdrew through a back injury on Thursday.

"It's always hard to withdraw from a big tournament". Halep sustained the injury - a herniated disc - in training last month and hasn't practised or played tennis in the last four weeks.

She had been heading into Singapore as top seed but a persistent back problem saw her pull out of the Kremlin Cup in Moscow this week, after she retired just 31 minutes into her first-round match in Beijing last month. I didn't practise for the last four weeks. But it will be better for my health. "It's not easy to go on court and compete at this moment". Actually, I think it's the first time in my life.

"Unfortunately, after much discussion with my team and doctors, I have made the decision to withdraw", said Halep.

Despite withdrawing from Singapore, Halep is guaranteed to end 2018 as world number one for the second year in a row.

Wozniacki also admitted that she will be sad to see the WTA Finals depart Singapore after a five-year run in Southeast Asia when the tournament shifts to Shenzhen in China from 2019. But despite embedding herself as a permanent fixture in the Top 5, it would be another three years before Halep would return to a Grand Slam title round - and once there, she would fall to 20-year-old Jelena Ostapenko in three sets.

This is Pliskova's third straight year at the WTA Finals, which will take place from 21 to 28 October at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

"Singapore is a special city and I'm sure the fans will enjoy seeing some fantastic women's tennis this week".

Previously qualified for the Championships TOP 8 were tennis players Simona Halep (Romania), Angelique Kerber (Germany), Caroline Wozniacki (Denmark), Naomi Osaka (Japan), Petra Kvitova (Czech Republic) and Sloane Stephens (USA).
