Wozniacki takes the fourth position on the WTA list

Wozniacki's victory is bound to boost her confidence ahead of this month's season-ending WTA Finals in Singapore, where the 28-year-old is the defending champion. The second seed Dane did not take much time in the Chinese capital, Beijing to clinch her 30th career crown.

The first of Wozniacki's 30 titles on the WTA Tour came in Beijing in 2010 and she did not drop a single set en route to her third championship of the season.

"I wasn't able to play with that fire that I have in all my matches", Del Potro added, saying however that 34th-ranked Basilashvili "played unbelievable".

After a bit of a struggle, Wozniacki got the break she needed to seal the victory in 55 minutes. "The physios did a good job and somehow I'm still hanging in there, serving OK", world number 20 Sevastova said.

When the US dollar strengthened earlier this year, investors feared emerging market economies could be in trouble. The IMF said last week that recent government efforts haven't been sufficient to stem a looming crisis.

Wozniacki, whose form has been patchy in the second half of the year, was ruthless on her serve and wrapped up the first set with an overhead smash to underline her superiority. "She didn't give me any presents, it was tough", said Sevastova.

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

In the final match opponent Carolyn will be Latvia's Anastasia Sevastova, who previously knocked out of the tournament Naomi Osaka (2:0).

The Latvian, seeking what would have been the biggest title of her career, was ultimately her own worst enemy though, committing 35 unforced errors, 21 of them in the second set.
