KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - Danish star Caroline Wozniacki won the Malaysian Open after dispatching Romania's Alexandra Dulgheru on Sunday.
The top-seed lost the first set, but managed to overcome the initial setback and win the match 4-6, 6-2, 6-1.
"I kept making you (Dulgheru) run because I knew that you would eventually get tired, but well done and good luck in your next tournament," said Wozniacki.
With the win, she has managed to atone for her first-round early exit last year in the same Malaysian tournament.
Wozniacki qualified for the final after beating Taiwanese ace Su-Wei Hsieh in straight sets at the semi-finals on Saturday.
She posted a selfie on Instagram after collecting her trophy and wrote that she "couldn't be happier" with her 23rd title.
"Thank you Malaysia for a great week, can't wait to be back!"
