Caroline Wozniacki wins third consecutive New Haven title

Caroline Wozniacki win Pilot Pen Tennis at Yale

Caroline Wozniacki remained undefeated at the Pilot Pen Tennis at Yale (13-0), winning her third consecutive title at the tournament with a 6-3 3-6 6-3 win over Nadia Petrova in the final. It’s the Dane’s second title of the week, as she won the rain-delayed Rogers Cup final against Vera Zvonareva on Monday.

The top-seeded Wozniacki was leading 6-3 2-0 when Petrova took charge and won the second set of the New Haven final. Then in the third set Wozniacki established a 4-1 lead and although Petrova managed to come closer, to 4-3, Wozniacki played two good games to close out the match.

Wozniacki now heads to the US Open, where she is top seed, with four WTA titles this season, which is more than any other player on the Tour has won. Her first opponent at the US Open will be American wildcard Chelsey Gullickson, who is unranked. (via Sony Ericsson WTA Tour)

    I thought she could have won the match in two sets. Anyway, I don’t think she will get a better chance to win a Grand Slam title than at this years US Open.

    Its all great she on fire and won 3 tournaments in 4 weeks but I dont think she will win the US Open, simply because I believe she would be fatiged and porbably Sharapova would beat her if they were to meet in the 4th round.
