The world number one Dinara Safina swept to her second claycourt tennis title in as many weeks with a 6-2 6-4 victory over Danish teenager Caroline Wozniacki in the Madrid Open final .

After her triumph over compatriot Svetlana Kuznetsova in last week's Rome final, the powerful Russian top seed sealed another comfortable win and looks in fine form leading up to the French Open at the end of this month.

It's Safina's 11th career title.
