Like Wang, the No.2 seed came into this encounter without dropping a set and she will take that unblemished record into Monday's (AEST) meeting with Sevastova, who earlier in the day saw off US Open champion Naomi Osaka to reach her first WTA Premier final.

The world number 2 showed her class in the win over Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova 6-3, 6-3 in the final, securing the Beijing title a second time in her career having previously lifted the crown back in 2010.

"It was one of my best tournaments ever", said the runner-up. Sevastova put up some brilliant shot and failed to convert her first two break point chances as Wozniacki completed a big hold to 1-1. "I was 20 years old", Wozniacki said.

"I think I just really appreciate still being here, playing well, being able to win these titles".

A break midway through the opening stanza was enough for Wozniacki to take a set lead. Wozniacki is 1000 points away from the World Number one ranking and to dethrone Simona Halep.

"She didn't give me any presents, it was tough", said Sevastova, who retired in May 2013 because of persistent injuries, only to return in January 2015.
