While her former fiancé Rory McIlroy clung on to win his third major golf championship at The Open, Caroline Wozniacki blew away Roberta Vinci 6-1 6-1 to win the Istanbul Cup final and claim her first title of 2014.

The top seed needed just 67 minutes to see off the world No.24 at the hard-court Koza World of Sport Complex.

Wozniacki won 76 percent of points on her first serve - compared to just 43 percent for Vinci - and also saved all six break points against her.

The two players are now 2-2 in head-to-heads with Vinci beating Wozniacki when she was world No.1 in 2011.

Wozniacki, now ranked 15th, has kept her run going after winning at least one WTA title every year since 2008.
