10 FACTS: CAROLINE WOZNIACKI

Caroline Wozniacki was back with a bang in 2014, a run to the US Open final spearheading her charge for the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global.


1) Out of exile
Wozniacki will be competing at the WTA Finals for the first time since 2011. It is the reward for a resurgent second half of the season that saw her make the US Open final and return to the Top 10.

2) Slow starter
In her final 10 events of the season, Wozniacki picked up 3,265 points. Her first nine tournaments brought in just 891.

3) Fourth time lucky?
The Dane made her WTA Finals bow in 2009, going on to reach the semifinals. Twelve months later she reached the final, losing to Kim Clijsters, before going out at the round robin stage the following year.

4) Danish Dynamite
Wozniacki is the only Danish player to compete at the WTA Finals since it was launched in 1972. The only other Scandinavian to qualify was Catarina Lindqvist, from Sweden, who appeared in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1989.

5) You fight great, but I'm a great fighter
Twenty-one times Wozniacki has gone to three sets this season, winning 16 of these matches.

6) Upwardly mobile
Should Wozniacki go all the way in Singapore, she could - dependent on other results - go as high as No.3. Whatever happens, though, she is guaranteed to post her highest year-end ranking since 2011.

7) The best of the best
Wozniacki has won two of her eight matches in 2014 against her fellow qualifiers. However, she has pushed World No.1 Serena Williams to the brink a couple of times, losing in three close sets in Montréal and Cincinnati.

8) Winning feeling
Since winning her first WTA tournament in 2008, Wozniacki has picked up at least one title every year. This year was no different, the former World No.1 taking home the silverware in Istanbul.

9) Past success
Four of these titles have come on indoor hardcourts - the same surface that will host the WTA Finals.

10) Good omen
Wozniacki also knows what it is like to win in Asia, having previously lifted titles in Japan, China and South Korea.
