Even if Chung had been fit, he was trying to reach his first ATP final against a player who has won 95 titles, 19 of them Grand Slams.
Tennis.com's Joel Drucker calls the encounter a "career-defining final" for the duo.
The victor will also be World No 1 when the next rankings are released. Halep will try and play more aggressive whilst Wozniacki will keep chasing down balls and will look to keep errors to a minimum.
The current world No.1 and top seed said: "It's nice that it's happening". It's a nice feeling and I'm looking forward to the last match of this tournament. "When you're in the finals, I'm not going to lie, I was really nervous before going out there on court, but once I kind of settled in and we had the warmup, I thought, 'I have everything to win'".
Denmark's Wozniacki made the way through finals by defeating Elise Mertens 6-3, 7-6 while Romanian Halep entered the last two with a 6-3, 4-6, 9-7 win over Angelique Kerber. "I'm going to cry, I'm very emotional".
So, who will win the women's singles title?
In another show of Wozniacki's vast scrambling from the base-line, the Dane chipped a backhand from a clattered Halep fore, with Halep netting the return.
"I always believed in myself", said the Dane of making another major final. I'm sorry I had to win, Simona. "I feel she just likes my game". I slept a lot. "I've dreamt of this for so many years".
"I want to thank my fiancé who is here tonight", said Wozniacki. I don't think I did something that wrong. Emotions are there. Pressures are there for both of us. I think it's awesome.
The win returned Wozniacki to the No. 1 ranking, six years after losing it at the 2012 Australian Open. I still stick with these predictions based on what I have seen this tournament. After spending 11½ hours on court through six matches - moretime than Roger Federer in the men's draw - Halep said she just hit a wall. "I'm never going to get that question [about not winning a Grand Slam] again". After the first set, I just was out.
Wozniacki has won their last three. Top seed Simona Halep will face second-seeded Carolinze Wozniacki.
An energy-zapping set lasting 50 gruelling minutes seemed to take its toll on Halep.
A series of great escapes underpinned Simona Halep's courageous Australian Open campaign but the exhausted Romanian hit a dead end in the final as she crumbled in a thriller against Caroline Wozniacki.
Wozniacki could not contain her emotions after her victory was confirmed.

Since then, there have been a slew of different circumstances that prompted shutdowns, but this shutdown is unique for one reason. Despite last minute bipartisan meetings, the bill to fund the government until February 16 did not receive the required 60 votes.
According to a report, the bill needed 60 votes to pass and it was well short of that number with 48 senators voting against it. There are also employees or agencies whose work is not funded through Congress that will be largely unaffected by the shutdown.
