Second-seeded Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic put together a dominating performance to beat former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark for the first time and win the Qatar Open on Saturday.

Pliskova improved to 15-1 on the season by defeating Caroline Wozniacki in the final, 6-3, 6-4.

Wozniacki went into the match with a 3-0 record against Pliskova, who will remain No. 3 in the world rankings.

The second seed has only lost one match so far in 2017, to Mirjana Lucic-Baroni in the Australian Open quarter-finals, and won the title in Brisbane prior to her run to the last-eight in Melbourne.

"I'm having a great start to the year, which is always important".

Altogether, Wozniacki spent more than three hours on court on Friday evening, while Pliskova played for just under three hours.

Despite her hope of winning Wimbledon, Pliskova has constantly underperformed at the All-England Club.

Wozniacki has won all three of her previous matches against Pliskova, but their last encounter came in 2014 before Pliskova reached last year's US Open final and became a top-10 player. "Having two wins today is awesome, and I just beat Domi for the first time in my life". "I'm excited to get the trophy, and finally get some new fans here".

"Karolina was playing really well, she deserved this one", Wozniacki said.

However, Pliskova was able to break again to secure the opening set and after a nip-and-tuck battle in the second, wrapped up the win with a break of serve in the tenth game.

"She's playing really well, serving really well".
