Copenhagen - World No 1 Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark won her second straight Sony Ericsson Open title Sunday, beating fourth-seeded Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic 6-1, 6-4 in the final.Wozniacki has not lost a set all week in Copenhagen, and the 20-year-old Dane dominated from start to finish to claim her fifth WTA title of the year in front of a sellout home crowd at the indoor Farum Arena."I'm so pleased to have won for the second year in a row," Wozniacki said. "It's a special feeling on my home court, but it wouldn't have been quite so special without the support."Wozniacki made a flawless start in the final, finding accurate forehand and backhand winners from all corners of the center court.The 38th-ranked Safarova, by contrast, had lost the first set of all her matches in the tournament, and on Sunday she again started poorly in an error-strewn opening set.As in previous matches, the Czech lefty gradually upped her game, but against the world No 1 there was to be no repeat of her earlier comebacks.Safarova converted her only break point in the match to level the second set at 2-2, but Wozniacki sealed the win in 1 hour, 7 minutes.In defending her title in Copenhagen, Wozniacki brought her total number of WTA titles to 17.Despite her dominance on the WTA circuit, Wozniacki is yet to win a major. The former junior Wimbledon champion will again aim to silence the skeptics when the year's third Grand Slam begins at the All England Club on June 20.
