China Open: Caroline Wozniacki beats Anastasija Sevastova to win title

Caroline Wozniacki Beijing 2018

Wozniacki, victorious at the Australian Open at the start of the year, has looked in ominous form as she prepares to defender her WTA Finals crown in Singapore at the end of the season.

Juan Martin Del Potro was beaten by Georgian player Nikoloz Basilashvili in the China Open final today.

Wozniacki told the WTA official website: "I didn't feel great going into the tournament, to be honest. I had some problem the last three days and it affected a little bit my game".

"Unfortunately, I have been playing through pain in my back this whole week", the world No. 6 said in a subsequent statement released by organizers.

Wozniacki managed two breaks in the Latvian's first three services, storming to a solid 6-3, 4-1 lead that seemed unassailable given the ease with which the Dane was commanding the court in the first set.

Sevastova, 28, will find herself just outside the top 10 in the rankings after her run.

This seemed to affect del Potro, whose miscued drop-shot in the following set saw Basilashvili break serve once again to serve for the match at 5-4.

"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.

In another engrossing game that ebbed and flowed, del Potro saved two match points before failing to convert two break points of his own.
