China Open: Osaka survives huge scare to reach semis

Anastasija Sevastova- Beijing 2018- Jimmie48/WTA

Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki won her 30th WTA singles title as she beat Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova 6-3, 6-3 in the China Open final on Sunday.

"She is such an incredible player and it was really hard to play against her here".

Caroline Wozniacki eased her way into the final of the China Open with a straight-sets victory against home favourite Wang Qiang.

Wozniacki claimed her first China Open title in 2010 when she jumped to top the WTA rankings for the first time.

"It was one of my best tournaments ever. I hope that we will continue to have good matches", Sevastova said.

That's basically why." Osaka, who is still overcoming the tiredness post the US Open further added, "I just kind of felt a little bit exhausted practising and warming up for the match. Wozniacki said eight was her lucky number and, having won in Beijing eight years ago, she "felt it was my year".

"I feel great being here".


Sevastova has never won against Wozniacki in four career meetings and the Dane has only ever conceded one set to the 28-year-old.

"I also want to thank and apologise to Anastasija for today".

"Then after number one in the world, I wanted to win a Slam, then I wanted to lift trophies".

"I'm kind of happy that I was able to get this far".

"She didn't give me any presents, it was tough", said Sevastova, who retired in May 2013 because of persistent injuries, only to return in January 2015.

Fognini withdrew from the semi-final because of ankle pain.
