Caroline Wozniacki bulldozes Kaia Kanepi to capture title – KDB Korea Open Tennis Championship 2012
Former world number one, Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark, gave a hard beating to third seeded player from Estonia, Kaia Kanepi, in the final of the KDB Korea Open Tennis Championship in Seoul.
The Danish star humiliated her Estonian opponent, allowing her to win only one game in the entire contest, closing it 6-1, 6-0 to grab a one sided win in just an hour and two minutes.
Wozniacki made her intentions clear from the beginning of the encounter, as he clinched breakthroughs in the first and third game, holding her own serves to attain a 4-0 lead. Kanepi avoided complete embarrassment by opening her
account in the fifth and reducing the trail to 1-4 but she lost her serve again in the seventh to go down 1-6.
The Danish player did not do anything extraordinary on her serve in the first set, as she could not hit any ace and committed one double fault. The 22-year-old could manage to maintain a first serve percentage of just 55 but succeeded
in winning 11 of the 12 points on them.
Wozniacki further improved the level of her game in the second set. The Danish star played flawlessly and did not allow Kanepi to win even a single one till the end, breaking the Estonian three times and holding her entire serves
to seal it 6-0.
The 5ft 10in tall’s first serve percentage went further down to 43 but she did not drop even a single point on them, winning all the six. The Monte Carlo, Monaco resident did not provide even a single break opportunity to her opponent
and utilised three of the seven she received in the second set.
Wozniacki needed three sets to win her semi-final match on Friday. During the post match press conference, she said, "Yesterday was a very difficult match, but the final is the final, and you just do anything you can to win. Today
I did well at turning defense to offense and offense to defence. That's actually a strength of mine. I'm very pleased with how everything turned out."
She added, "I don't really think about the ranking - I'm just happy I won the tournament. I want to enjoy it and be positive - so that's what I'm thinking about right now. I want to build up for the next season and hopefully my
results this week will help me move forward.”
This is Wozniacki’s first title since winning in New Haven last year. She was ranked number one at the start of this year but now she is on 11th position.
