Beijing : Mission accomplished for Caroline !

With a back to back title Tokyo-Beijing and her dream of becoming n°1 in the world that came true : Caroline can only be delighted of her recent performances ! But she also knows that's not the end of the road, just the beginning of it !  To be the Year End n°1 she'll have to win at least two Round Robin matches at Doha later this month ! Being in the semis and defending her last year point would seal it for sure ! But it won't be easy ! Even without Henin, The Williams Sisters and some other big guns, there are still quality players like Kim Clijsters, Jelena Jankovic, Elena Dementieva to name some of the girls qualified for the YEC at Doha !

There were well scare for Sunshine as she injured her knee during her match against Serbian and coming slowly but surely at a very decent level back Ana Ivanovic. Yet she managed to fight through scare and pain to win that match ! The match against Peer was normal service for the Dane and also a revenge after her defeat against that same Israeli earlier in March ! 

In the final both Vera Zvonareva and Caroline Wozniacki brought very good tennis to the spectators and people watching the final on their television by hitting great points and well fought rallies ! Despite having lost the 2nd set, the fresh n°1 in the world showed a strong mental and strong display to win the 3rd set, the match and the championship ! She didn't make the same mistakes as she did during the 2nd set ! 

Here are her Beijing Results :
