  • Caroline Wozniacki Beijing 2018

But it was ultimately Sevastova's inconsistency of 35 errors, 22 of which came in the crucial second set, that cost her the chance to win what would have been the biggest title of her career.

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.

The first set started very close, while Sevastova managed to break the serve to the US Open champion to have a 4-3 lead, allowing her to gain confidence, reports Efe news. "Having won again, eight is my lucky number and it is eight years ago I won here so I felt like it was my year", Wozniacki said on-court after her victory.

"I did everything that I can to be better for the final, it wasn't enough time to feel 100 percent", the 30-year-old said.

Sevastova, who is looking for her second title of the season, has never beaten Wozniacki in four previous meetings.


"I think I just really appreciate still being here, playing well, being able to win these titles".

The number two seed saw off Anastasija Sevastova 6-3 6-3 in Beijing to win the tournament for the second time.

But Wozniacki saved three break points to take a 5-3 lead as Sevastova struggled for consistency. "The physios did a good job and somehow I'm still hanging in there, serving OK", world number 20 Sevastova said.

"I could see Juan was sick today", Basilashvili said. "Caroline played awesome today, it's always tough playing against her and I have never won".
