The 2010 Canadian Open women’s singles champion is World No.2 Caroline Wozniacki after defeating No.8 seed Vera Zvonareva in the Women’s Singles Final to win her first Rogers Cup title in Canada.
The 20 year old Wozniacki defeated dual Grand Slam champion Svetlana Kuznetsova in the semi finals 6-3 6-2 and played again on the same day with a very similar score line against 2010 Wimbledon runner-up Zvonareva who defeated Azarenka earlier that day and Kim Clijsters in the quarter finals.
The 1.77m Wozniacki from Denmark lost in the 1st round at Canada last year in Toronto so only earned 1 WTA ranking point and this year by winning the Rogers Cup Women’s Singles Final in Montreal won 800 points and 350,000 US dollars in prize money. Woznaicki who only turned 20 last month levelled her series of 4 matches with Zvonareva at 2 all after her 6-3 6-2 win.
Zvonareva achieved her best career result at the Canadian Open by making the final and is now not far away from earning a career best ranking as well. The 1.72m Zvonareva from Russia has been as high as No.5 and added another 55o points to her rankings total which points her in contention for one of the 8 spots in the WTA Tour Finals in October this year.
