It's been a tough and exciting week at the #Wta Finals in Singapore as the best eight players of the season fought for ultimate glory. After witnessing some grueling battles, the audience is ready for the last chapter of 2017 as Caroline Wozniacki [VIDEO] will take on Venus Williams for that much coveted Singapore title. The Dane soared past Karolina Pliskova to book a spot in the final while simultaneously ending the 25-year-old Czech's bid for the world No. 1 seat at the end of the year. That landed in Simona Halep's lap even though the Romanian failed to qualify from the Red Group.

The second semifinal tie had all the spices and drama feel a tennis match can possibly deliver.

And once more, #Venus Williams seems to have defied age.

Caroline Garcia's enthusiast run comes to an end

Aged 24, Caroline Garcia made her debut in Singapore in what was a thrilling run for a player who until recently didn't have much to say while competing on the big stages. Wuhan and Beijing might go down as the ultimate for France's No. 1 female tennis player. She went on to push Venus Williams in a three sets battle.

The opening act had Garcia with the initiative while Venus seemed to have some issues, especially on the first serve. Saving a set point was part of the drama as Venus pushed the set further into a tie-break. Again, a couple of double faults sank her as Garcia soared up to win the opener.

But, that is the good news ended for the Frenchwoman. The next two sets were all about Venus Williams who despite her age, made it clear that she is willing to put in all the resources and the weapons she has.

An early break in the second set put Williams in front with Garcia struggling to keep up with the rhythm.

Inevitably, the set landed in Venus' pocket. The decider saw a better play from both sides, especially on serve. With no break chances at all, they went toe-to-toe. Trailing 4-3, Garcia got broken and then Venus had the chance to serve out the match. She had to save three consecutive break points before putting the match away.

Venus Williams vs Caroline Wozniacki

The WTA Finals in Singapore will feature an interesting matchup opposing two players with two completely different styles. Wozniacki is a baseliner by default while Williams loves to end the point in a faster manner. Head to head stats is also interesting with Wozniacki yet to solve Venus puzzle at least once. Overall, Venus leads her by 7-0. What;s even more interesting is that all the previous matches were held on hard.

Wozniacki's sole advantage seems to be the slow surface of the Singapore venue. It'll be interesting to see how and if she can convert that into a solid leverage. #Caroline Wozniacki
