Elina Svitolina returns to the Top 10 and ascends to the top of the Porsche Race to Singapore leaderboard after winning her eighth career title at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia, defeating former World No.2 Simona Halep, 4-6, 7-5, 6-1.
"Every single day, everyone is working very hard," Svitolina said of winning her second Premier 5 title. "They are waiting for these kind of moments when there is a right moment and the right day.
"I think I can be proud of myself for handling the pressure, because I played some tough matches here. Today I needed to show that I am there and I want to win and I'm ready to do it."
