Wozniacki will now head to Singapore to defend her title at the upcoming WTA Finals, featuring the top eight qualifying players of the season.

Wozniacki, whose form has been patchy in the second half of the year, was ruthless on her serve and wrapped up the first set with an overhead smash to underline her superiority.

Wozniacki claimed the only break of the opening set and looked set to surge to the win after moving 4-1 up in the second by racing in from the baseline after Sevastova's backhand clipped the net cord.

Ex-first racket of the world Caroline Wozniacki became the champion of a major tournament in China category Premier Mandatory with a prize Fund of $8,285,274. Wozniacki is 1000 points away from the World Number one ranking and to dethrone Simona Halep.

"I did everything that I could to be better for the final.my game today wasn't as good as it was in the last matches", the Times of India quoted him as saying.

The Japanese world number six complained of the problem during her semi-final defeat by Sevastova at the China Open on Saturday, receiving treatment on the court.

The reigning Australian Open champion secured a 6-3 6-3 victory inside 87 minutes in Beijing as she won her first title since Eastbourne in June.

Both players held serve until Sevastova handed Wozniacki a break with an ugly unforced error, sending a drop shot straight into the net, putting the Dane up 4-2.

"I wasn't able to play with that fire that I have in all my matches", Del Potro added, saying however that 34th-ranked Basilashvili "played unbelievable".
