A little rain cannot prevent Caroline Wozniacki, peak-ranked from winning her fourth successive New Haven title, as she defeated the Czech qualifier Petra Cetkovska, 6-4, 6-1, on Saturday in Connecticut.
Wozniacki of Denmark, the peak seed at United States Open of next week, improved to 17-0 at the tournament. It was her sixth title this season.
Wozniacki said, “I just have a good momentum every time I play here. You always play better when you like to be around a tournament.”
Cetkovska ranked 40th, had won seven successive competitions from the beginning of meeting the criteria. The competition, which was transferred to 1 p.m. Eastern from 5 p.m. to defend Hurricane Irene, was played outdoors at the Connecticut Tennis Center.
