When the rain finally stopped it was Katerina Siniakova who quickly started. The Czech stormed out to an early lead over top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki in the rain-delayed Swedish Open final and never looked back, notching a 6-3, 6-4 triumph.

Wozniacki did her best to level up mid-way through the opener, saving five break points to hold for 2-4 then breaking to get back on serve in the next game, but Siniakova broke back immediately and claimed the first set in the next game.

Wozniacki had some left wrist issues (both players took medical timeouts for arm injuries in the second set) to deal with but was still as ferocious as ever in the second set. She took a 3-1 lead but could not keep the pressure up against Siniakova.

The Czech, who was a finalist last year at Bastad, took four games on the trot to lead 5-3 in set two before Wozniacki could muster another hold. She then served out the match, converting her second championship point with a sliced service winner down the T.

The title completes a banner weekend that saw Siniakova fell three consecutive Top 20 opponents (Anasasija Sevastova, Caroline Garcia and Wozniacki), who were the top three seeds.

"It’s really amazing for me," seventh-seeded Siniakova said at the post-match trophy presentation. "Last year was really good, and so I’m so happy that I came back because I couldn’t imagine a better week.

Wozniacki falls to 0-5 in finals in 2017 with the loss.
