Caro Wozniacki wins Korea Open 2012 title
Former world number 1, Caroline Wozniacki, is back on the winning circle after claiming her 1st title of the year in Seoul.
Wozniacki trashed Kaia Kanepi 61 60 to win the title at the KDB Korea Open today after just 62 minutes of play.
"Yesterday was a very difficult match, but the final is the final, and you just do anything you can to win," Wozniacki said. "Today I did well at turning defense to offense and offense to defense. That's actually a strength of mine.
"I'm very pleased with how everything turned out."
Wozniacki was ranked No.1 in the world at the start of the season but now is No.11.
"I don't really think about the ranking - I'm just happy I won the tournament," Wozniacki said. "I want to enjoy it and be positive - so that's what I'm thinking about right now. I want to build up for the next season and hopefully my results this week will help me move forward and get back to playing my best."
Kanepi, who like Wozniacki will next play in Tokyo, has been out of the tour since June with bilateral Achilles injury.
"My season has definitely had its ups and downs because of my injuries, but last year was the same, and my whole career has been a little bit up and down as well," Kanepi said. "It's nothing new and I'm used to it."
