Warrior Wozniacki through to Auckland final

Play has again been cancelled at the ASB Classic

Taking the finals meeting in straight sets, she defeats Wozniacki 6-4, 7-6 (4).

She raced out to an early 5-1 first-set lead before holding off a spirited Vickery resistance to win 6-4, and then broke late in the second set to secure the match.

"I have got a lot of matches under my belt and it was the type of preparation I hoped for", Wozniacki said as she looked ahead to the Australian Open from January 15-28.

Czech third seed Strycova had fallen out at the quarter-final stage to Hsieh, while fourth seed Radwanska was throttled by the energetic Vickery. The second set brought the more balanced fight and 8 easy holds on both sides, and Caroline had to work hard to keep her serve intact in game 3, wasting 4 game points and saving 2 break points before she held for a 2-1 lead. "I'm not 17 anymore, I can feel it for sure!"

The No. 122-ranked Vickery marked herself as a player to watch this year when, after winning three matches in qualifying, she beat defending champion and fellow American Lauren Davies on the way to the semis.

Regarding the penalty awarded for Héctor Bellerín's challenge on Hazard, he said: "I think it was a yellow card for Hazard".

"It would be amazing.obviously, being here in another final means a lot to me, and I would love to make it a step further and win this tournament".

The 29-year-old German, who has played at the Auckland tournament every year since her first visit in 2010, extended her winning streak to 14-matches stretching back to last year when she won in Moscow and then the WTA Elite Trophy in Zhuhai.

Last year, Serena Williams said she "abhorred" the conditions when bundled out in the second round on a particularly windy day and wanted to "get to somewhere better, some warm weather".

"In doubles you have someone to talk to and here you have just yourself", she said.

"I didn't know what kind of performance I was going to put in this week, whether I was going to do well", he said. "In general, I'm feeling good". She did that with a hold at 15 to book the place in the final where she will try to beat Wozniacki for the 6th time in their 10 matches.
