Caroline Wozniacki has defeated Klara Zakopalova of the Czech Republic 6-2, 7-6 (5) to win the Danish Open.

Under pressure to win the inaugural event in front of an expectant home crowd, the top-seeded Wozniacki had wobbled as she advanced to the final, but needed just 78 minutes to claim her 8th WTA Tour title in straight sets on Sunday.

Zakopalova had beaten the second seeded Li Na of China in the semifinals of the indoor hard court tournament, but was unable to upset Wozniacki, who broke twice and held serve to take the first set comfortably.

Seventh-seeded Zakopalova did manage to break Wozniacki with the scores at 2-2 in the second, but the No. 3-ranked player fought back to win the match on a tie-breaker.
