Caroline's fairytale end to home open.

Playing for the first time since her 20th birthday, Caroline Wozniacki came out with her eighth Sony Ericsson WTA Tour title, winning the inaugural e-Boks Sony Ericsson Open in her native Denmark.

World No.3 Wozniacki, the top seed at the International event, drew large crowds and fought off inspired opponents all week, going to three sets three times en route to the final - against Iveta Benesova in the second round, No.5 seed Julia Goerges in the quarters and Anna Chakvetadze in the semis.

None of them could stop her though, and Wozniacki dusted off her eighth Tour title with a 6-2 7-6(5) win over No.7 seed Klara Zakopalova on Sunday morning, rallying from 4-2 down to win the second set and holding off a late surge from the Czech, who cut her lead in the tie-break down from 6-1 to 6-5 before falling.

I thought this was second year for this tournament, "The Big Stuffed Bunny" won this tournament last year. What was up with the hair do? I didn't like like it. The Bunny is now 8-7 in finals, winning her 8th tournament on 08-08 if you believe in numerology. :P

Just to let you know I had Lickitongue aka Chakky aka A-Chak aka Chakvetadze :P winning over the Bunny. I had Li Nananai winning the whole thing. My predictions have been beyond terrible this year haha.

I didn't like her hair either! It really didn't suit her, in my opinion.

I also thought that "Lickitongue" would beat "The Big Stuffed Bunny" I'm hoping Chakky will have a good run at the US Open. And I also thought Li would win it all.

My predictions have been alright :D except for the spring clay-court season.

hahahah I did believe in numerology untill Serena won the AO in 2010 :P but that's not to say I didn't pick it.
