Coroline Wozniacki wins her 14th WTA title at Indian Wells.

Caroline Wozniacki claimed the title Sunday at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden with a 6-1, 2-6, 6-3 win over France’s Marion Bartoli. The 20-year-old Dane had impressed in her semi-final match against past champion Maria Sharapova two nights earlier, and carried that form into her second straight Indian Wells final, conceding just three points on serve to race through the opening set. Bartoli put up a fight, breaking Wozniacki twice in the second set to extend the match, but the top seed came back strong in the third as she opened up a double-break lead to go up 4-1. Though Bartoli recovered one break of serve and narrowed the lead to 4-3, Wozniacki won the final three games, clinching the title on her second match point when Bartoli’s return sailed long. Wozniacki, who has improved on each of her five visits to Indian Wells, is the eighth different women’s champion here in the last eight years and the 16th overall in tournament history. She has now won 14 tour-level titles, placing her fifth among active players on the WTA tour. Wozniacki also won the Dubai title last month.
