Building on her improved play over the summer, Caroline Wozniacki won her first tournament of the season at the 2016 Toray Pan Pacific Open. The former world #1, a semifinalist at the US Open earlier this month, took out Japan’s Naomi Osaka in the Tokyo final, 7-5 6-3. After being down 5-7 0-5, Osaka rallied to 3-5 in the final set but couldn’t quite pull even. Still, Caro was full of praise for the up and coming Japanese/Haitian player, who will turn 19 next month. Wozniacki, only 26 herself despite feeling like she has been around forever, had a strong run to the title, defeating Belinda Bencic, Carla Suarez Navarro and #2 seed Agnieszka Radwanska. Although it wasn’t too long ago that some were writing Sunshine off as past her glory days, with the tour in a state of flux at the moment, if Wozniacki can continue to play as she has this summer and into the fall, the Danish star could still be a Major threat moving forward.
