The unseeded Spaniard won her first title in Bogota in February.
“This was the most enjoyable tournament for me so far this season,” Martinez Sanchez said.Wozniacki, who turned 19 Saturday, is ranked ninth in the world and has won five WTA titles.
“I felt right at home here and I hope to come back next year. I played very well today and I’m happy I played my own game.”
“I’m sorry I spoiled your (birthday) celebrations, but I promise I will buy you something instead,” Martinez Sanchez told Wozniacki at the post-match news conference.
“Maria played better than me. She played smart and it was difficult to get a rhythm with her stop volleys,” Wozniacki said.In the doubles final, Gisela Dulko and Flavia Pennetta denied Martinez Sanchez a double, who partnered with Nuria Llagostera Vives with a 6-2, 0-6, 10-5 victory.
“But I’m still happy to have reached the final.”
The men’s Swedish Open starts Monday.
