World No 2 Caroline Wozniacki beat Anastasija Sevastova in the China Open final to take her WTA Tour singles trophy tally to 30.

Wozniacki came into the match without having dropped a set in run to the final and she kept that record going as she broke once in the opening set and three times in the second, although Sevastova managed to get one break back.
“China holds a special place in my heart. I became world No 1 for the first time here many years ago. I’ve had great experiences here,” the Dane, who also won the title back in 2010, said after the match.
