In the other semi-final, Australian Open champion Wozniacki converted five out of eight break point opportunities to thump local hope Wang Qiang 6-1 6-3 and reach her first hardcourt final since Melbourne.

It was Wozniacki's second title in Beijing, following her success in 2010 which had taken her to the top of the world rankings for the first time in her career.

World No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki captured her second China Open title here on Sunday with a commanding straight set victory of 6-3, 6-3 over No. 20 Anastasija Sevastova.

Del Potro's defeat came as a shock for many, and was blamed for being a result of illness by the player, who had been suffering from a cold the past few days.

"It was one of my best tournaments ever", said the runner-up.

"Playing against Juan, he was sick today for sure, I could see that", said the all-action Georgian.

In the final match, Wozniacki held the opening set with a smash.

"By the third match, I thought I played really great tennis".

The 28-year-old claimed the only break of the first set in the sixth game before eventually winning another break in the second. "She didn't give me any presents, it was tough", said Sevastova.

The Dane of Polish ancestry, who was also the victor in the Australian Open and Eastbourne this year, was a clear favourite throughout the tournament after defeating all rivals quickly, including China's Wang Qiang, Czech Katerina Siniakova, Estonian Anett Kontaveit, Croatian Petra Martic and Swiss Belinda Bencic.

This was her third trophy of the season and 30th title of her career.
