Paris - End-of year world number one Simona Halep topped the latest WTA Tour rankings released on Monday with Caroline Wozniacki up three places into third after the Dane's WTA Finals success in Singapore. 

Halep became the 13th year-end women's number one despite struggling at the WTA Finals winning just once to bow out at the round-robin stage. 

The Romanian reached the top ranking for the first time earlier this month and narrowly held on when world number three Karolina Pliskova lost her semi-final in Singapore. 

Former world number one Wozniacki beat Venus Williams 6-4, 6-4 in Sunday's final.
