“I’m definitely playing better than I have been before.”

Caroline Wozniacki claimed the Dubai Championships title after a comprehensive 6-1 6-3 final win over Russia’s Svetlana Kuznetsova. The Dane went through the entire tournament without dropping a set on her way to her 13th career WTA title. And the 20-year-old is expected to keep her place at the top of the world rankings for at least four weeks.

World number 23 Kuznetsova, who endured her third loss in the Dubai final, had no answer to Wozniacki’s powerful game. However, she is expected to climb 10 places when the new rankings are published on Monday.

Wozniacki dominated proceedings from the very start, taking a 2-0 lead before winning four successive games to claim the first set. Kuznetsova saved two match points at 5-2 in the second set but her resistance eventually relented in the ninth game as Wozniacki sealed victory in 75 minutes. I definitely went for my shots,” said Wozniacki, who attacked the net on numerous occasions during the final.

“It’s paying off now. I’m definitely playing better than I have been before.”
