Wozniacki beats Venus Williams to win WTA Finals

Danish star Caroline Wozniacki on Sunday beat Venus Williams in two straight sets 6-4 6-4 in the BNP Paribas WTAFinals in Singapore, to clinch the last trophy of the season.

But at one stage, it sure looked that way.

Facing an opponent who enjoyed a 7-0 winning record against her, Wozniacki continued to display the form and variation she had all week in Singapore to emerge with a 6-4, 6-4 victory in her fifth appearance at the elite, eight-woman event.

The 26-year-old suffered a crushing defeat to an inspired Jelena Ostapenko in the French Open final in June, her second title-match loss at Roland Garros, but a win over the Latvian in Beijing this month took her to the top of the rankings.

"Venus Williams is a great champion and she made it very, very hard for me".

There was relief among the crowds who had come out to see if the great champion could cap a year that saw Williams reach a Grand Slam final for the first time since 2009, yet both times she fell short. But at the same time, you know, I just have to hope that it's going to go my way now.

"For me, it was just important to try and keep my head down and just focus on myself and what I needed to do and try and forget who is on the other side of the net". I knew she was stepping it up, she had nothing to lose at that point, and she really went for it. Things were going in for her.

"That's why I walked up to the chair umpire and said to pay attention to the spectators or the spectator that was doing that". A second service break in the eighth game allowed Wozniacki to serve for the set only for Williams to break back right away.

It was she who got the first break in the match, in the fourth game of the first set before Williams broke back to bring the set back on serve. "I'll try to play a little better earlier next time.

A year ago was tough with injuries and all that, but just standing here and winning this title means a lot to me", said Wozniacki, who was runner-up to Kim Clijsters in the 2010 edition.
