Dane Humbles Williams to Claim WTA Crown

Caroline Wozniacki

It was only the 27-year-old's second trophy this season after she won last month's Pan-Pacific Open in Tokyo.

"It feels great. Going into the tournament, you know that it's going to be a tough one, regardless", she said.

"I am so happy I managed to win in the end", Wozniacki said.

"Well, I can say that it's a great feeling that I can finish the year number one", Halep told reporters at the WTA Finals in Singapore on Sunday after it was confirmed she would remain as number one until the start of 2018. But I just want to be relaxed, to enjoy tennis more and to give my best every time I go on court.

"For me, it was just important to try and keep my head down and just focus on myself and what I needed to do and try and forget who is on the other side of the net".

Wozniacki hit 19 winners with four aces to only eight unforced errors. A second service break in the eighth game allowed Wozniacki to serve for the set only for Williams to break back right away. She was broken two more times than Wozniacki, which was the difference.

After a tight first set in which both players lost their serve twice, Wozniacki broke decisively in game ten.

Meanwhile, in an earlier match yesterday, Timea Babos and Andrea Hlavackova beat the pair of Kiki Bertens and Johanna Larsson 4-6, 6-4, 10-5 to win the doubles title.

Coming into their finals meetings, Williams had seven consecutive wins against Wozniacki.

"I felt like it was a little bit of an uphill battle, to be honest. That might be a good plan".

It completed a stellar comeback season for the two-time Grand Slam finalist, who endured an injury-marred 2016 and finished ranked number 19, her lowest position since 2007.

"It feels fantastic, I can't believe I am here as the victor", the 27-year-old told BT Sport. "But also it's more special to finish the year, as we can see that less players finished the year as number one in the world and I think it's more hard to do that".
