Vera Zvonareva clinched an important win against world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki on Wednesday at the WTA Championships, which has boosted her chances of reaching the knock-out stage. The Russian was dominant in the first set, but was pegged back by the Dane in the second. In the end, Zvonareva’s aggressive approach made the difference, and she claimed a 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 success.

"We always have tough matches and this one was very tough too, three sets as usual," revealed Zvonareva after the match. "I did well today. I played my game and went for my shots and was able to win this time. It was a great match for me."

Wozniacki will be disappointed to have lost, but there is one major positive for her today. Maria Sharapova’s early withdrawal has guaranteed that Wozniacki will finish the season as the world No. 1. Sharapova had been struggling with an ankle injury, and she’s decided to rest up so that she doesn’t further aggravate the problem.
