This was Wozniacki's first victory against her American counterpart in eight meetings.

After her victory, Wozniacki said: "It feels amazing, I can't believe I am here as the winner," she told BT Sport.

"Venus Williams is a great champion and she made it very, very difficult for me. This is my biggest title to date."

In the opening set, there were a total of five breaks of serve but Wozniacki was able to claim the vital break in the tenth game to win the set 6-4.

Wozniacki started the next set by holding serve and then breaking her opponents and then broke again to go on and lead 5-1.

It was clear that Williams had a lot of fight left in her as she claimed Wozniacki serve to trail 2-5.

The American then held her own serve and broke again to trail 4-5 with her serve to follow.

But Wozniacki knuckled down in the tenth game and managed to convert her second match point to win the set and match 6-4.
