WThe U.S. Open semifinals excepted, Caroline Wozniacki has gone on a tear of late, winning in Montreal, New Haven, and now Tokyo and Beijing back-to-back. The Beijing final was postponed a day because of rain, so it wasn't until today that the world number 1 was able to hold that trophy. She defeated Vera Zvonareva--the woman who took her out of the U.S. Open--6-3, 3-6, 6-3.
Wozniacki began her China Open competition with an intestinal virus, and later had to contend with a knee injury and then a rain delay, but those annoyances didn't stop her from claiming her sixth title of the year.
Zvonareva is now number 3 in the world.
