Kiki Bertens: The last woman into the WTA Finals field in Singapore, Bertens made noise in a big way by qualifying out of her group to reach the semifinals. 

The Dutch No.1 went 2-1 in her round robin group, securing placement in the semifinals when US Open champion Naomi Osaka retired due to injury.

She rallied from a set down to stun Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber in her opening match, before falling in another three-setter to Sloane Stephens in group play.

Anastasija Sevastova: Sevastova set a host of benchmarks for her career in October, beginning at the China Open in Beijing. 

The Latvian reached her first Premier Mandatory final in Beijing, defeating Donna Vekić, Dominika Cibulková and Naomi Osaka before losing to Caroline Wozniacki in the final. 

After this event, she reached her then-career-high ranking of World No.11, and later reached the semifinals of the Kremlin Cup in Moscow, a Premier-level event. 

As the No.5 seed there, she knocked off Magdalena Rybarikova, Yulia Putintseva and Vera Zvonareva before falling to Ons Jabeur. 

Ashleigh Barty: Aussie Barty won her biggest career title at the WTA Elite Trophy in Zhuhai to close out the month, as she advanced out of her round robin group before taking out defending champion Julia Goerges and Wang Qiang to raise the crown.
