Wozniacki wins Danish Open

12:24 pm on 14 June 2011

The women's world number one and local favourite Caroline Wozniacki thrilled a rowdy crowd to win the Danish Tennis Open for the second consecutive year.

Opting to stay at home and play on hardcourts rather than get the grass under her feet ready for Wimbledon, she easily beat fourth seed Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic 6-1 6-4.

The 20-year-old Dane, who did not drop a set all week, will now head to Wimbledon for some much-needed practice on grass, hoping to improve on last year's showing when she was beaten 6-2 6-0 in the fourth round by Petra Kvitova.
