Taking stock of Simona Halep's 2017 season, we can say she has had a lot of downs that she has had ups. The Romanian had two great moments: defending her Madrid Open title and becoming the world no. 1 at the China Open in October. But, on the other hand, the defeat in the French Open final and some of the other matches she lost still weigh more than the goals she has had achieved. This year, in total, she has won 44 matches and lost 15, earning a total of $4,371,227. She, however, lost the China Open final to Garcia which allowed the Frenchwoman to qualify for the WTA Finals. Halep has some tough opponents to face in Singapore. But, unlike other previous occasions this year, she will have to be good at handling the pressure in the decisive moments in order to end the year as the world no. 1. Will she be able to do so? Tell us your opinion in the survey.
