Got her first pro win at Memphis in 2006, defeating No. 83 Kristina Brandi in three sets and reaching the tournament semifinals to move to No. 461 in the world.

Won back to back ITF tournaments to start 2007 to reach No. 160 in the world. Made her Grand Slam debut at Roland Garros in 2007, losing in the first round to Nathalie Dechy. First Grand Slam win came at Wimbledon, which pushed her into the Top 100. Also reached the second round of the US Open, then the semifinals at Tokyo.

Reached the third round at Roland Garros and at Wimbledon to reach No. 30, then scored her first tournament title by winning Stockholm, including a victory over No. 10 Agnieszka Radwanska in the semifinals. After reaching the third round of the Olympics, she won New Haven with four wins over Top 20 players to jump up to No. 18 in the world. This led her to a fourth-round appearance at the US Open, then a third tournament victory, this one at Tokyo. Reached the Luxembourg final in late October, then won the ITF at Odesen to finish the season 58-20, ranked in the Top 15.

Dropped briefly to No. 2 in the world behind Clijsters, who won the 2011 Australian Open while Wozniacki was beaten in the semifinals. Reclaimed the top spot by winning Dubai and followed that up by claiming the title at Indian Wells. Added the crown at Charleston, Brussels and Copenhagen, but stumbled in the third round of the French Open and the fourth round of Wimbledon.
