Having begun the year by slipping out of the Top 10 on the back of a disappointing performance in Australia, Caroline Wozniacki began reversing her rankings slide with the help of some solid showings in Dubai, Indian Wells and Miami over the coming months.
These performances augured well for the European clay court season, but once on the dirt her Road To Singapore became somewhat bumpy. Early exits in Madrid and Roland Garros set back the revival, although not for long.
Once back on the swifter surfaces, Wozniacki did not disappoint, continuing to rebuild her reputation as a force at the top of the game with runs to the semifinals in Eastbourne and fourth round at Wimbledon.
The move to her favored hardcourts brought yet more success in the shape of a title in Istanbul and impressive displays amongst the game's best, in Montréal and Cincinnati.
Her summer form brought renewed belief to the Dane and an air of quiet confidence heading into the US Open. It was an opportunity she grasped with both hands, rolling back the years to reach the final, where her challenge was finally derailed by good friend Serena Williams.
With Singapore now in her sights, Wozniacki did not blink, more success in Tokyo and Wuhan securing her return to the season finale.
