Czech Katerina Siniakova won her second career WTA title and second of 2017 on Sunday, in the final of the Ericsson Open in Bastad defeating former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki 6-3, 6-4.


“Last year was really good,” said the 2016 Bastad runner-up, “and so I’m so happy that I came back because I couldn’t imagine a better week.”

The final was delayed by rain, leaving heavy conditions on the red clay, with the two sets lasting approximately two hours.

“I was just enjoying the game, even in the tough conditions,” the 21-year-old Siniakova said.

Wozniacki fell to 0-5 in finals this year after additional runner-up finishes in Doha, Dubai, Miami, and Eastbourne.

“It was a tough match,” said Wozniacki, who took a medical time-out for a right elbow injury, and had double the unforced errors to winners during the match. “Katerina played very well, so congratulations on winning the title. I’m sure we’ll have many more matches. It’s been a good week…I’m looking forward to the US Open Series and the US Open.”

Siniakova put the match away despite 28 unforced errors to 20 winners, and also dealing with right arm issues on the wet clay. Her first title of the year and first career title came at the beginning of the season at the Shenzhen Open.

Siniakova improved to 2-2 in career finals while Wozniacki dropped to 25-22.

One Comment for Siniakova Sinks Wozniacki to 0-5 in 2017 WTA Finals at Bastad

AndyMira Says:

This is the same problem with Wozzy when she failed to win a slam even when she’s at No 1…Lack of mental strength…I am very surprised she’s still with her father as a coach even after all this years…Why not change coach?seeking new ideas and approach to win a title?Imo,her game is not powerful enough to win a title…She’s excellent in defense but lacked in other department…

I see the similar pattern in Simona…she’s also the defensive player..but defense alone can’t win u a slam or many titles..U need a variety…especially when dealing with a bunch of the new player’s who’s got a huge serves and groundstrokes…Why not take example from Kei?He’s lack in physical and serve compared to other’s but my God!…His game feared even by the giants if he’s fit and healthy…Chang is very smart in covering kei’s weaknesses…If Caro and Simona want to win more…they need the changes…ASAP!..Especially Caro who’s at disadvantage with age and injury prone body…
