Simona Halep ended her best season in the best possible way with a title at the WTA Tournament of Champions in Sofia, Bulgaria.

In an the finale of the 8-women round robin event featuring all tournament champions during the year, Halep beat Stosur 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 today to win her sixth title of the year.

“I really wanted to win this tournament, so I’m just happy!” Halep said in her on-court interview after the match. “It has been a great tournament for me. And well done to you Sam, you played well all week.”

After finishing last season No. 47, Halep will move to No. 11 on the rankings putting her on the brink of the Top 10.

“I want to enjoy this moment and then take some holidays, and just relax,” the 22-year-old said. “Hopefully I can play next year like I played this year and do well in Australia.”

After a sub par season, Stosur finished strong winning 12 of her last 15 (losing twice to Halep).

“Congrats to Simona on playing a great final,” lamented Stosur. “She’s a very good player – she got me a couple weeks ago in Moscow, and again it was very hard today – but I’m happy with the week I had.

“Now I’ll take a break and then think about next season in a few weeks when I start training again.”

Halep beat Ivanovic in the semis yesterday, Stosur took out Pavlyuchenkova, both in three sets.
