Goerges extends streak, ousts Wozniacki for Auckland crown

AUCKLAND, New Zealand - Julia Goerges kept on winning in Auckland, serving out a third straight title with a 6-4, 7-6(4) victory over former WTA World No.1 Caroline Wozniacki, earning her the ASB Classic trophy.

"It feels amazing, I must say," Goerges said after the match ."It's not just about winning here, but the consistency I've had for the last few weeks and months. That makes me prouder, and I'm just enjoying every moment of it."

Julia Goerges kicked off her 2018 season with a third straight title and 14th straight match, winning the ASB Classic over Caroline Wozniacki in straight sets.
Seeded No.2 in Auckland, the 2016 runner-up thundered through her 10th match against the Dane, striking 41 winners to only 23 unforced errors to clinch the title after 90 minutes on court.

"She played really well today, and she had a great end to last season too, so it's good to see her bringing that form into this year. I'll try to get my revenge in Australia!" Wozniacki said during the trophy ceremony, noting Goerges' 6-4 head-to-head advantage.

Goerges and Wozniacki each ended 2017 on high notes, the German with back-to-back victories at the Kremlin Cup and the Hengqin Life WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai, while Wozniacki won the biggest title of her career at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global.

"I've gotten a lot of matches under my belt this week; it was the preparation I hoped for. I'll take a day off, fly to Melbourne, get used to the courts and conditions. Hopefully it'll be a great next couple of weeks."
