Wozniacki swats aside Sevastova in Beijing

Wozniacki swats aside Sevastova in Beijing”

Ranked third among active players for hard court titles with 22, trailing Serena (46) and Venus Williams (31), she has now won 11 titles in Asia, including 2010 Beijing and 2017 WTA Finals Singapore having extended to 5-0 her ideal record against Sevastova, only ever having dropped one set.

In the other semi-final, Australian Open champion Wozniacki converted five out of eight break point opportunities to thump local hope Wang Qiang 6-1 6-3 and reach her first hardcourt final since Melbourne.

Unseeded Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia beat Argentina's Juan Martín del Potro in two straight sets to win the China Open in Beijing.

Argentine top seed Del Potro was far from his best and has been fighting flu or a cold for several days in the Chinese capital.

"Having done everything, all of that, it's pretty unbelievable".

"I think I just really appreciate still being here, playing well, being able to win these titles".

"I did everything that I can to be better for the final, it wasn't enough time to feel 100 percent", the 30-year-old said. "I had some problem the last three days and it affected a little bit my game". "She didn't give me any presents, it was tough", said Sevastova.

In the final match opponent Carolyn will be Latvia's Anastasia Sevastova, who previously knocked out of the tournament Naomi Osaka (2:0).

In the men's final, big-hitting Basilashvili collected his second title of the year after winning in Hamburg. The world No. 20 made 35 unforced errors in the match, including 21 in the second set, to allow Wozniacki to close out the victory.

Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark celebrates with China Open trophy. She sealed the win on her own serve and admits her game is now in a good place.
