Caroline Wozniacki pips Venus Williams for the title — WTA Finals

Caroline Wozniacki pips Venus Williams for the title — WTA Finals

But the 27-year-old Dane could not have chosen a better stage - the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global - to pull off her first triumph over the 37-year-old American and biggest career win to date. Defeating Venus Williams in straight sets, Wozniacki wins 6-4, 6-4.

A clearly rattled Wozniacki went to the chair umpire to complain that a spectator in the crowd was making too much noise as she stepped up to the baseline to serve.

Until yesterday, Caroline Wozniacki had won only one set in seven agonising losses to Venus Williams.

She says she was keeping it together, even as Williams sent shot after shot "whizzing by me".

Also, Williams won the championship match in 2008 - the last time the title tie did not feature a player seeded in the top four - when she beat No. 8 seed Vera Zvonareva 6-7 (5/7), 6-0, 6-2. But at the same time, you know, I just have to hope that it's going to go my way now.

"I'm still shaking", Wozniacki said in her on-court interview after the match.

While Rajinikanth will be portraying the role of a scientist Vaseegaran and Amy will be the superstar's love interest. Without any doubt, the grandeur of the event was something that just can't be missed.

"That's why I walked up to the chair umpire and said to pay attention to the spectators or the spectator that was doing that".

"I will try to play a little better earlier the next time". A second service break in the eighth game allowed Wozniacki to serve for the set only for Williams to break back right away.

The first three games were dominated by the server until the Dane began to find the corners of the court with her powerful backhand, fashioning the first break of the match with back-to-back winners off both flanks.

"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".

Williams was seeking to win a 50th career title on Sunday.

Wozniacki is projected to finish the year ranked No. 3 in a year that included reaching eight finals and winning two titles. "I'm really proud of how I have played all week and how I have fought and how I really produced some great fighting out there".
