On the way to the final, Wozniacki did not lose a single set - the second racket of the world consistently passed Belinda Bencic, Petra Martic, Anette Kontaveit, Katerina Sinyakova and Wang Qiang.

This is the Georgian's second ATP World Tour 500 Series win this year, after his victory in the German Open in July.

Wozniacki became the double champion of Beijing and won the third title in the tournament category Premier Mandatory.

It has come full circle for Wozniacki, who claimed her very first WTA title in Beijing in 2010.

"I want to thank my team; Michael [Mortensen, her coach] thank you for being here and helping me out, and of course my dad, who has always been there with me since the start".

However, by winning the title, she will cut Simona Halep's lead at the top of the rankings to under 1000 points.

The reigning Australian Open champion secured a 6-3 6-3 victory inside 87 minutes in Beijing as she won her first title since Eastbourne in June.

"The physios did a good job and somehow I'm still hanging in there, serving OK", world number 20 Sevastova said. "She didn't give me any presents, it was tough", said Sevastova. Having done everything, all of that, it's pretty incredible. 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 think I had a dream of that, but I don't know how realistic I really believed that was going to be".

Sevastova, who has not beaten Wozniacki in five attempts, said was pleased with her performance this week despite missing out on a second title of the season.
