The Dane completed the straight sets victory over an opponent who saw off both top seed Elena Dementieva and defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska en route to the final.

Wozniacki broke Razzano’s serve in the sixth game as both players struggled to get the better of the windy conditions.

For a long time, that looked to be enough for her to seal the first set, but in the ninth Razzano made the most of her teenage opponent hitting the net with a simple two-handed backhand to convert the second of two set points.

The French player fought back again after going 6-1 down in the tie break, but she could not quite complete the comeback and Wozniacki took the first set.

Her run continued as she broke Razzano’s serve in the first game of the second set, before a run of three consecutive breaks saw Razzano level at 4-4.

From then on, both players were regularly earning and subsequently failing to convert break points, until Razzano’s winner right down the line was called out to give Wozniacki a 6-5 lead and the chance for her to serve out the match, which she did as Razzano’s sliced drop shot failed to get over the net.

Wozniacki can now look forward to beginning her campaign at the All England Club  with a first round match against Japan’s Kimiko Date Krumm after banking her winner’s cheque of $98,500.
