Tokyo Pan Pacific Open Final : Caroline Wozniacki beat Elena Dementieva 1-6, 6-2, 6-3

This final was the opportunity for Caroline Wozniacki to grab her 5th title of her season and 11th of career in total ! 

Well she performed awfully during the first set she was hitting errors like there was no tomorrow and seemed not focused at all ! Her foot work also was very bad during that set but I have to admit Elena played well at her side hitting some great winners ! During that set the n°1 seed didn't hit a single winner : well to be simple dire stats at Danish side ! But I think this awful first set was the wake up call Caroline needed ! 

In the second set we saw another Caroline Wozniacki she began to find back her tennis with committing less errors and forcing her opponent to make errors then : she was steady and knew back what to do to get confidence back and also playing a very decent tennis ! That set was even 2-2 but then won 4 games in a row where Dementieva was nearly non existant : 1st all and 6-2 in the second set for Sunshine ! 

In the 3rd set some breaks and debreaks 'till 3-3 where Elena Dementieva lost her serve to be 3-4 down : at the end it would have been fatal for her as she wasn't able to come back in the match ! At 3-5 down and 15-30 down she hit nothing else than 2 double faults which was the nail on the Russian coffin ! 

Mission accomplished by Wozzy with her 11th career tournament win ! With this she isn't far anymore of becoming n°1 next week if she manages to win at least 2 matches at Beijing !
