In an intriguing final that featured twenty six break-point opportunities in total, World No. 11 Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark rallied past Australian Samantha Stosur with a 6-2 4-6 7-5 scoreline and won the 2012 Kremlin Cup title. With this victory, the former World No. 1 Dane won her second-title of the season and 20th career title.
Wozniacki took 2 hours and 14 minutes to get past the feisty Australian Samantha Stosur, who further depreciated her record in the WTA finals and now its 3-12. The Dane capped a perfect week of tennis and now she will get back into Top 10. Wozniacki could not hammer many winners as compared to Stosur, but she committed only 16 unforced errors as compared to Stosur’s 48 – which made all the difference in deciding the outcome of this encounter.
After 45 minutes of play in the first set, Wozniacki clinched it. The Dane kept the momentum in control from the very start of the match and never allowed the Australian to settle down. Wozniacki quickly raced to a 3-0 lead in the first set before the Australian could find her feet in the match.
Stosur gave a fitting reply to the former World No. 1 Wozniacki by winning the second-set. Both contenders exchanged breaks until the Australian got the decisive one in the ninth game of the second-set and then held on to her serve in the next game - to earn the equalizer.
The Australian took 43 minutes to win the second set after converting 4 out of 7 break-points. Though, Stosur committed more unforced errors as compared to the Dane, but she also hammered 13 winners. Both contenders exchanged breaks in the final set too but Wozniacki earned the decisive one in the twelfth game and won the match and title.
