Oct.30 - SportLand: Caroline Wozniacki claimed her first year-ending championship, and her first ever win over Venus Williams, with a scintillating straight-set victory in the title match in Singapore. After the Top 8 players of 2017 battled each other for over a week in Singapore, Caroline Wozniacki stands on top of the mountain.
The No.6-seeded Dane moved past fifth seed Venus Williams of the United States, 6-4, 6-4, to claim the title at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global on Sunday.
Wozniacki had to survive a stirring comeback from Williams in the second set. "I’m still shaking," Wozniacki said in her on-court interview after the match. "I was up 5-0, everything was going well, and all of a sudden, Venus just starts upping her game. She went for her shots, she started serving to my body, and I’m just so happy that I managed to win in the end."
