SEOUL, South Korea -- Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki has easily beaten injury-plagued Kaia Kanepi 6-1, 6-0 to win the KDB Korea Open.

Wozniacki from Denmark needed only about one hour to defeat third seeded Kanepi of Estonia to win the tournament on Seoul's Olympic Park hard courts Sunday. It was Wozniacki's 19th career WTA victory.

She told a news conference she is "very pleased" with the victory and she wants to come back to Seoul next year to defend her title.

She defeated Ekaterina Makarova of Russia 6-1, 5-7, 6-4 in the semifinals while Kanepi advanced the finals after beating Varvara Lepchenko of the United States 6-4, 2-6, 6-4.
