The 28-year-old Wozniacki, who won her maiden Grand Slam at the Australian Open at the start of this year, was imperious against the unseeded Sevastova, winning 6-3, 6-3.

Beijing, Oct 7 Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, seeded second, defeated Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova 6-3, 6-3 on Sunday to win the China Open title, eight years after achieving it for the first time.

Del Potro's defeat came as a shock for many, and was blamed for being a result of illness by the player, who had been suffering from a cold the past few days.

Two loose errors from Sevastova, playing her biggest career final, give Wozniacki a 0-30 look in the sixth game.

"The physios did a good job and somehow I'm still hanging in there, serving OK", world number 20 Sevastova said. Wozniacki is 1000 points away from the World Number one ranking and to dethrone Simona Halep.

After easing through the first set, Wozniacki raced to a 4-1 lead in the second.

It is a hard decision. "You can see how he started the season and the World Cup that he had, you don't get many players like him". It is my dream since I was a kid. "I was proud to see the lads do really well and see how proud the country was of the boys".

"I could see Juan was sick today", Basilashvili said.

It's the third title of this year for Wozniacki, and she captured it by making crafty use of the court and waiting patiently for the right opportunities to hit winners.

Russian qualifier Daniil Medvedev stunned home favourite Kei Nishikori in the final to claim the Japan Open title after a comfortable 6-2 6-4 victory in Tokyo yesterday.

In another engrossing game that ebbed and flowed, del Potro saved two match points before failing to convert two break points of his own.

Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark said she was fulfilling childhood dreams as she won her second China Open crown in Beijing.
