Simona Halep has been drawn with Maria Sharapova and Flavia Pennetta in a tough looking Red Group for the season-ending WTA Finals in Singapore.

Sharapova may have been troubled by an injury lay-off in recent months, but the Russian insists she is now ready for the climax to the WTA season.

“I had a bit of a roadblock in China but towards the end of the season, it’s no surprise that injuries come up here and there… You have to take care of your body,” said Sharapova.

“I haven’t played long, it’s not convenient but I’m healthy now.

“I spent the last few weeks healing up, and I came out here early to acclimatise. I had a consistent first half of the year and now it’s the chance for me to get the last few months going.”

World No1 Serena Williams has pulled out of the WTA’s season finale, which is set to be held in Singapore from 2014 to 2018. The American has won the tournament for the last three years.
