Danish star Caroline Wozniacki on Sunday beat Venus Williams in two straight sets 6-4 6-4 in the BNP Paribas WTAFinals in Singapore, to clinch the last trophy of the season.
It was the 27-year-old’s first victory over Venus in her career.
She had been beaten by Venus in seven previous matches.
The victory was also her first WTA Finals win. She was a runner-up in 2010.
“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.”
“Eight is my lucky number! I was hoping that if I’m going to beat her, at least once in my career, it has to be today. I just went out there and I just did my best.”
Wozniacki finished the WTA Finals with a 4-1 record, with her only loss coming to Caroline Garcia in the last round of group play.
She also finished the season 60-21, the most wins she’s posted since 2011.
The Singapore final was her eighth of the season.
