Wozniacki Clinches Year-End No.1 Spot

Oct 30, 2010 3:23:39 PM - thesundayleader.lk

Caroline Wozniacki recovered from the loss of the opening set to beat French Open champion Francesca Schiavone at the WTA Championships in Doha and seal the year-end number one spot.
The Dane prevailed 3-6 6-1 6-1 on Thursday to claim her second victory in the Maroon Group round-robin and clinch her place in the semifinals of the $ 4.5 million tournament.
Meanwhile, in the other half of the competition, world number three Kim Clijsters secured the final spot in Saturday’s semis with a hard-fought 6-4 5-7 6-1 win over Belarus’s Victoria Azarenka.
Top seeds Wozniacki and Clijsters are joined in the last four of the season-ending contest by Australia’s Samantha Stosur and Vera Zvonareva of Russia.
For Wozniacki, the result guarantees she will top the global rankings in 2010, having fluffed a chance to seal the status 24 hours earlier, as she slumped to a straight sets defeat to Stosur.
