Sloane is now ranked 8th but things didn't look that bright for her at the start of the season, winning just three matches in the first four tournaments she played in 2018 before claiming six wins in Miami to lift the title, her biggest after that US Open triumph in 2017.

She displayed some high-level tennis at the Rogers Cup too, rattling off consecutive straight-sets wins to reach the final but once again fell to nemesis Halep in a high-quality final which lasted a marathon.

Meanwhile, Halep will finish the year as the world No. 1 for the second season in a row, the WTA said.

She also gave a short update on her fitness following the back trouble that forced her out of competition in Beijing, saying: "I'm doing physio to try to make [my back] stronger, but I haven't practiced 100 per cent yet".

She has a first-round bye in Moscow, but has yet to decide whether she is fit enough to play. "I have already 3-4 days getting ready for this tournament", Halep said. She has been at the top of the rankings for almost the entire year even though her results suffered as the season wore on. "I'm looking forward to meeting the unbelievable fans in Singapore, exploring the city, and competing against the best players of the season". I don't know now, but for sure I will take a decision for my health first'. The American joins Simona Halep, Angelique Kerber, Naomi Osaka, Petra Kvitova and Caroline Wozniacki in the singles field, with two spots remaining. "To do it for a second time in 2018 feels like a special achievement, especially having also won my first Grand Slam this year".

Keeping her best level throughout the long season is something Halep has struggled with, even though she has qualified for the WTA Finals in each of the five years since its move to Singapore.
