Former world No. 1 and two-time US Open runner-up, Caroline Wozniacki is preparing for her return in Singapore. Currently ranked sixth in the world, the Dane tennis star had to overcome so many challenges throughout the past three years or so. At the moment, she seems alive and well, enjoying tennis on any given circumstances. She shares the Red Group with the current world No. 1 Simona Halep, the last-minute candidate Caroline Garcia and her nemesis #Elina Svitolina, the young Ukrainian tennis star who made Wozniacki's life a living hell especially in the finals of some WTA events. Wozniacki has a sour record in 2017 as she won a sole WTA title (Tokyo) and lost other six finals.

Wozniacki has put some massive work on the table

Finding herself into a new chapter of her professional career after surviving the apparent meltdown from 2016, Caroline Wozniacki amassed a total of 22 attended WTA events this season. As a result, she entered Singapore with a total of 76 official matches under her belt, of which she won 56. Splitting the numbers even further, her solid season translates into seven finals.

She prevailed only once about a month ago in Tokyo where she successfully defended her title. She is the runner-up of other six events too. One by one, she reached the las tact in Qatar, Dubai, Miami, Aegon International, Swedish Open, and Canadian Open. Two of those finals (Dubai and Canadian Open) were lost to her today's opponent Elina Svitolina.

At her last appearance in Singapore back in 2014, Wozniacki made it out of the group stages only to lose a tight three sets encounter in the semis against the eventual winner Serena Williams.

Elina Svitolina to make her debut in Singapore

Aged 23, the tennis star from Ukraine has had a tremendous season, Entering the #Wta Finals for the first time, she holds an impressive 52-12 record in win/ loss ratio. Moreover, she is the first ever to win three Premier 5 events in a single-season stretch (Dubai, Rome, Toronto). Moreover, she has won two other titles in Taiwan and Istanbul, both being WTA International events. She is a powerful contender for the world No. 1 seat. Unlike Muguruza, Pliskova or Halep she has nothing to defend from last year. Last year, she was the runner-up of the WTA Elite Trophy in Zhuhai losing to Petra Kvitova in the final.

In head to head stats, Elina Svitolina (4 WTA) leads #Caroline Wozniacki by 3-0. Thus, it'll be interesting if she will maintain the trend against the former world No. 1.
