9:07 am on 16 April 2012

Double defending champion Caroline Wozniacki suffered her first defeat at the Copenhagen tennis Open yesterday when Germany's Angelique Kerber took her title in a 6-4 6-4 win.

Top seed Wozniacki had won the first two editions of the indoor hardcourt title in 2010 and 2011, building up a 14-nil streak in the process at her home event.

Kerber, the second seed, had lost her two previous meetings with Wozniacki.

Kerber broke the Dane's serve three times in each set to earn the title in 1 hour, 38 minutes.
