BASTAD, Sweden — Caroline Wozniacki struggled with injury Sunday as she lost the Swedish Open final to Katerina Siniakova.
The 56th-ranked Siniakova, who had injury problems of her own, took advantage of Wozniacki’s inconsistent serving to win 6-3, 6-4 for her second career title.
Meanwhile, Wozniacki has now played five finals in 2017 and lost them all in straight sets. She’d been seeking her 26th career title but first on clay since 2011, when she was the world No. 1.
Both players took medical timeouts following the first set as Wozniacki had problems with her left wrist and Siniakova with her right arm.
Wozniacki reacted well to go a break up at 3-1, but the Dane then lost her next two service games as her Czech opponent regained the upper hand.
