Caroline Wozniacki shines in Brussels

Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki won the first edition of the WTA tournament in Brussels. On the Brussels clay, the world's number 1 overcame strong opposition from China's Peng Shuai to claim the title 2-6, 6-3, 6-3, a last warming-up for the French Open at Roland Garros.

Wozniacki claimed her 4th title of the season and will be one of Kim Clijsters' challengers at the French Open in Paris, which start today.

"I was pleased with the way I played and fought today", Wozniacki told reporters. "Now I am looking forward to Roland Garros. I think I will play on Monday but I'll be ready." The 20-year-old Danish tennis diva is the world's number one, but is still chasing her first Grand Slam trophy.

Kim Clijsters did not take part in Brussels, as she was still recovering from a couple of injuries. The hopes for a Belgian win were carried by Yanina Wickmayer, but she had to withdraw due to a back injury while playing Wozniacki in the quarter-finals. The 21-year-old from Flemish Brabant was trailing 2-0 when she had to retire. She will, however, travel to Paris to give it her best shot at Roland Garros.
