Singapore: Simona Halep said on Wednesday that her lopsided victory over American superstar Serena Williams had given her huge confidence as she eyes a spot in the WTA Finals last four.

The Romanian debutante said she had not even dreamt of such an upset after she won 6-0, 6-2 in Singapore, handing the 18-time Grand Slam-winner her heaviest defeat since 1998.

"No, I didn't," she said, when asked if she had ever imagined such a big victory against Williams, the world number one and two-time defending champion. (Also read: Serena says she is nowhere near being her best)
