Dementieva beats Wozniacki for Luxembourg title


Top seed Elena Dementieva came back from a set down to defeat fourth-seeded Caroline Wozniacki at the FORTIS Championships Luxembourg and win the third title of the 2008 season

“You don’t feel great after you’ve lost 7-6 in the third, but Elena has had a great tournament and played a great match today, and really deserved to win here,” said Wozniacki after losing 2-6 6-4 7-6(4). “I knew it was going to be tough. I was fighting for every point. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to win the match today. But she played great.”

The 27-year-old Russian also won her only other meeting with the Danish teenager, beating her on en route to winning gold medal at the Beijing Olympics.

With Dementieva winning her 11th career title, Wozniacki failed to win her fourth one.

BTW: Last season Ana Ivanovic was the winner of the FORTIS Championships Luxembourg, but this year the Serb played at Linz instead, and won the title today.
