Day four highlights:
The WTA Finals debutant Naomi Osaka, who snatched the 2018 US Open trophy from tennis great Serena Williams, failed to prove herself in Singapore and lost the match against German ace Angelique Kerber on Wednesday night 4-6,7-5, 4-6.
She said, "I'm a perfectionist. I expect a lot from myself. I feel like when other people expect a lot from me, then it sort of doubles. Then I don't know. I internalize a lot of things, and then it just explodes and then I start talking to myself on the court."
In another match, the current world No. 5 Sloane Stephens disappointed Dutch ace Kiki Bertens 7-4, 2-6, 6-3. The 2017 US Open champion 25-year-old Stephens is still continuing her dream run in Singapore as after two matches she is still unbeaten.
