Caroline Wozniacki dispatched Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova 6-3, 6-3 in the final of China Open 2018 to win her third title of the 2018 season.

She could bring a huge momentum heading into her title defense at the WTA Finals.

Her win means that she will stay at No. 2 in the rankings and Sevastova will rise to a career-high of No. 12.

The unseeded Sevastova downed U.S. Open champion Naomi Osaka in the semifinal, but couldn't handle the second-seeded Dane's punishing groundstrokes.

Wozniacki has already confirmed she'll be returning to the ASB Classic in 2019, where she's looking to go one better than her finals appearance in 2018.

Wozniacki claimed the only break of the opening set and looked set to surge to the win after moving 4-1 up in the second by racing in from the baseline after Sevastova's backhand clipped the net cord. Sevastova continued to be wayward in the second set, handing Wozniacki a 4-1 lead.While Sevastova broke back, the errors continued to flow after that and Wozniacki broke one last time to secure the title.

This seemed to affect del Potro, whose miscued drop-shot in the following set saw Basilashvili break serve once again to serve for the match at 5-4.

Ex-first racket of the world Caroline Wozniacki became the champion of a major tournament in China category Premier Mandatory with a prize Fund of $8,285,274.

However, at 3-3 Wozniacki produced a moment of magic to set up three break points with a superb backhand pass on the run before Wang double faulted, the Dane wasting little time in reeling off the next two games to earn a place in her 54th career final.
