Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki continued her dominant start to the 2011 WTA season with a victory in the Family Circle Cup in Charleston this weekend.
It’s the world number one’s third title of the year after her successes in Dubai and Indian Wells.
Wozniacki overcame Russian Elena Vesnina in a very impressive straight-sets victory 6-2 6-3. Vesnina did caused Wozniacki one or two problems with the Russian forcing four break points against Wozniacki.
Unfortunately for Vesnina, the imperious Wozniacki held on all four occasions and never really looked like letting the title slip from her grasp.
It is the second time that the unseeded Vesnina has been defeated by Wozniacki in a final having gone down in the New Haven final in 2009.
The Dane’s solid play from the baseline always meant that she was in control and she made only 10 unforced errors on her way to claiming an incredible 15th title at the age of 20. She now has an amazing record of 15 wins from 23 final appearances.
Vesnina, on the other hand, is still searching for her first tour title despite this being her fifth appearance in a final.
Wozniacki overcame Serbia’s Jelena Jankovic 6-4 6-4 to reach the final and has been in imperious form this season. Despite the tremendous start to the season, the real test of Wozniacki will come in her quest for a maiden grand slam title which has eluded her so far.
The Dane has not only hit the headlines for her displays on the court, but her press conferences and warm-up attire has garnered media attention. Wozniacki has spent several much of time with the media discussing her love of Liverpool football club and has been seen wearing the club’s jersey in her pre-match warm-ups.
