Defending champion Elina Svitolina booked her place in the last four at the WTA Finals in Shenzhen with a straight-sets win over Simona Halep.

Bianca Andreescu will await the results of a scan on a knee injury before deciding if she can continue in the tournament after retiring midway through her match against Pliskova.

Andreescu was leading Pliskova 2-0 when she injured her left knee.

Like how she began, a sloppy Halep misfired within the 12th sport as she handed Svitolina the primary set with a slew of unforced errors.

After shocking the world with a thrilling win at the U.S. Open, it looks like Bianca Andreescu's breakout season will come to an abrupt end. "I was just ready that she was going to call physio because so far I think she has been calling physio in every match".

Halep then kept clutch to go a break up, but started to slip on her next service with a pair of netted unforced handing Svitolina a break of her own.

"I didn't feel intimidated at all stepping on the court", Andreescu said.

"Not much to say really", a disappointed Andreescu said.

Pliskova said she was excited about her upcoming must-win match against Halep.

Svitolina made a strong start to the match, breaking Halep early to establish a three-game lead only for the Romanian to break back and level the scores midway through the set.

The Wimbledon Champion, who is now World No. 5, arrived in Shenzhen after a rather mediocre performance in the Asian Swing and US Open Series.

"Honestly, I really didn't know what to do. Of course, there is some kind of pressure because you're losing points (in the ranking), but I always take it as if I had played well here before, so you can Do it again ". "Hopefully, I can recover because I'm a little bit exhausted and play better than today".

"I stepped weirdly on a return", Andreescu said after the match.

"Everything what I just won was because I made a victor or because I was pushing her".

Svitolina, the only player in this year's field who has not won a title this season, was unbeaten in the tournament last year.

However, she had a much better time in the first half of the season, where she won the title at the SW19 and reached the final in Madrid and Doha.
