World No.2 Caroline Wozniacki was supposed to play her Rogers Cup semifinal against Svetlana Kuznetsova on Saturday but persistent rain in Montreal delayed the most part of the match all the way to Monday, which forced the final to be played shortly after.
The 20-year-old cruised to a 6-2 6-3 victory over Kuznetsova in the semifinals without dropping serve and only hours later played for the title against Vera Zvonareva, who reached the final after Victoria Azarenka retired due to a blister on her left foot at 7-6(6) 1-0 down.
Wozniacki disposed of two of the highest-ranked Russian players in one day as she followed the win over world No.12 Kuznetsova with a convincing 6-3 6-2 win over eighth-ranked Zvonareva.
Wozniacki has collected her ninth Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles title and third of the year (after Ponte Vedra Beach and Copenhagen). She and Kim Clijsters are now the only two players that have won three titles this season. The two faced each other in the last year’s final of the US Open, and this time they will be the Top 2 seeds at the Grand Slam. (photo via Rogers Cup)
