Join our expert tennis capper for his top betting selections for the WTA Finals Singapore Day 4. He'll provide a detailed analysis, explaining why you should grab these two valuable bets.

Simona Halep (1) vs. Caroline Wozniacki (6)

The 2014 runner-up – Simona Halep – is making her fourth consecutive appearance at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals in Singapore. Playing her first match as the top-ranked player, Halep didn’t experience any major issues against Caroline Garcia. Known as one of the best counter punchers in the game, Garcia couldn’t find the answer to Halep’s solid defensive game. In addition to her terrific 1.18 winners / unforced errors ratio, Simona won 83.33% of the points when facing break points in her opening match in Singapore.

Caroline Wozniacki couldn’t have asked for a better return to the WTA Finals. The 27-year-old completely overwhelmed Elina Svitolina in a perfect start in her bid to regain the world’s no.1 ranking. Known as one of the greatest defenders in tennis history, the slow court conditions in Singapore are perfect for Caroline’s game style. Taking a look now at Wozniacki’s numbers on her debut in Singapore, the 2010 runner-up ended the match with 16 winners and only 5 unforced errors.

This will be the 6th career meeting between these two players with Wozniacki leading on the h2h by 3 – 2.

As the h2h suggests, there isn’t much separating these two players. The sportsbooks think the same with Simona’s moneyline available at -111 at Pinnacle while Coral offers +110 for Wozniacki’s victory. Despite Caroline’s impressive display in the opening match, it won’t be easy for the Dane to find the answer to Halep’s exceptional ball striking skills. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of the value on Simona’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on the Romanian to win this match.

Against our expectations, Elina Svitolina couldn’t find the answer to Caroline Wozniacki’s incredible defensive skills. Despite her disappointing performance in the opening match in Singapore, the world no.4 can never be underestimated. On the other hand, Svitolina is also famous for playing her best tennis in the big moments. Apart from her outstanding 73.33% winning record against top-10 opponents over the last 12 months, the 23-year-old Ukrainian holds an incredible 5 – 0 record in finals in 2017.

Caroline Garcia continues her quest for a first ever win at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals in Singapore. At the age of 24, Garcia is going through the best moment in her career with a phenomenal 86.67% winning record since the US Open. Despite her brilliant results in recent months, the slow court conditions in Singapore are far from ideal for Caroline’s powerful game style. Adding to this, Garcia ended the match against Simona Halep with a poor 0.81 winners / unforced errors ratio.

These two players will face each other for the third time in their careers with each of them winning one of their previous two official encounters on the WTA Tour. Despite Garcia’s recent win over this opponent in Beijing, the court conditions in Singapore should benefit Svitolina on this match-up. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to add Svitolina’s moneyline to your betting picks as the best betting approach for this encounter.
