WTA Championships—Doha, Qatar
Reigning US Open champion Kim Clijsters defeated world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki to capture the WTA Championships on Sunday. Scoring a 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 victory, Clijsters needed two hours and 20 minutes to claim her second biggest victory of the season.
Breaking serve on six of 14 occasions, Clijsters stormed through the final set on the strength of her vicious forehand.
Improving to 2-0 against her Danish opponent, Clijsters had previously won the Tour finale on two occasions.
Wozniacki, who failed to capture a Grand Slam title in 2010, will enter next season as the top ranked player.
Clijsters told reporters earlier this week that she will retire after the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
