Wozniacki gets her 1st WTA title of 2014

Caroline Wozniacki overpowered second-seeded Roberta Vinci 6-1, 6-1 Sunday to win the Istanbul Cup final and clinch her first Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) title of the year and 22nd overall.

The top-seeded Dane needed only 67 minutes against the 24th-ranked Italian.

Wozniacki won 76 percent of points on her first serve - compared to just 43 percent for Vinci - and also saved all six break points against her at the hard-court Koza World of Sport Complex.

“I served well and pushed her around the court,’’ said Wozniacki, who won all seven of her service games.

Vinci was broken five times in the match and lost her last three service games.

The two players are 2-2 in head-to-heads with Vinci beating Wozniacki when she was the top-ranked player in 2011.

The 24-year-old Wozniacki - runner-up at the 2009 U.S. Open to Kim Clijsters - has won at least one WTA title every year since 2008.
