Caroline Wozniacki claimed her first Tour title of the year by strolling to a 6-1 6-1 win over Roberta Vinci in the Istanbul Cup final.

The top-seeded former world number one required only 67 minutes to bury Vinci at the hard-court Koza World of Sport Complex in Turkey.

The Danish player won 76 percent of points on first serve while also saving six break points.

“I’m happy to have won my 22nd WTA title – it’s a great feeling!” said Wozniacki. “I’m happy how the final went today. I served well and pushed her around the court, and I really dictated the match.

“I’ve had a good week and am feeling good on hardcourts, which is great moving forward.”

Wozniacki, 24, has now won at least once on the women's tour since 2008.

It was her 22nd WTA title of her career, and some will see it as a key moment in a revival after her much-publicised split from golfer Rory McIlroy in May following a three-year relationship.

They had announced plans to marry and had sent out wedding invitations before McIlroy apparantly decided otherwise.
