World No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki captured her second China Open title here on Sunday with a commanding straight set victory of 6-3, 6-3 over No. 20 Anastasija Sevastova. In addition to that, she did not drop a set during the China Open tournament.

Wozniacki produced a big hold for 4-1, saving three break points along the way, and to rub further salt in the wound Wang was duly broken to love in the next as the first set slipped away.

It's been nothing if not a consistent performance from Wozniacki here in Beijing this year.

"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".

"I became number one here for the first time many years ago - eight years ago", said Wozniacki.

"I think I just really appreciate still being here, playing well, being able to win these titles". Wozniacki is 1000 points away from the World Number one ranking and to dethrone Simona Halep.

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. Sevastova, who has been managing a stomach muscle injury since the round of 16, broke back to give herself a chance to mount a comeback.

In the final match, Wozniacki held the opening set with a smash. Then after number one in the world, I wanted to win a Slam, then I wanted to lift trophies.

It's the third title of this year for Wozniacki, and she captured it by making crafty use of the court and waiting patiently for the right opportunities to hit winners.
