Caroline Wozniacki wins 30th title with China Open victory

Caroline Wozniacki has won her second China Open title after she defeated Anastasija Sevastova in a commanding 6-3 6-3 victory to maintain her strong form ahead of the WTA Finals in Singapore.

Wozniacki, who would have suffered her worst by ranking defeat in a final, opened the second set with a reassuring 34-3 record in previous encounters after winning the first set in 2018. For the first time in over seven years, Wozniacki did not lose a set during a championship run, tallying the 30th title of her career.

"I'm just happy to have reached 30 today, I'm going to enjoy that", said Wozniacki, a former number one.

In the final match opponent Carolyn will be Latvia's Anastasia Sevastova, who previously knocked out of the tournament Naomi Osaka (2:0).

"Playing against Donna, I had some problems with my stomach muscle and never expected to go further".

"China always holds a special place in my heart as I became number one here for the first time eight years ago", said 2010 champion Wozniacki.

"She didn't give me any presents, it was tough", said Sevastova, who retired in May 2013 because of persistent injuries, only to return in January 2015.

Basilashvili won 6-4, 6-4 to cause an upset against the world number four at Beijing's National Tennis Centre in China's capital.

The Latvian, seeking what would have been the biggest title of her career, was ultimately her own worst enemy though, committing 35 unforced errors, 21 of them in the second set.
