The seventh time was the charm for Caroline Wozniacki.

Contesting her seventh final of the season, Wozniacki routed Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, 6-0, 7-5, to retain her Tokyo title.

The sixth-ranked Wozniacki, who crushed world No. 1 GarbiƱe Muguruza, 6-2, 6-0 in the semifnals, captured her first title of the year.

It marks the 10th consecutive year Wozniacki has won at least one title. It's her 26th career title and first championship since she defeated Naomi Osaka to win Tokyo last September.

"This was my seventh final of the year — it gets harder to get that last win," said Wozniacki, who scored her ninth straight win in Tokyo.

Wozniacki breezed through the opening set in a mere 20 minutes as Pavlyuchenkova, who went the three-set distance in tournament wins over CiCi Bellis, Qiang Wang, Barbora Strycova and Angelique Kerber, wasn’t quite as quick to the ball as her opponent.

The 23rd-ranked Russian, who was playing her first Premier-level final since the 2015 Moscow, did not earn a break point in the match.

Wozniacki broke in the final game to seal a 73-minute victory.
