Wozniacki is Champion at 2011 FCC

The world's number one seed held onto her first-seed status at the 2011 Family Circle Cup on Daniel Island, and then prevailed in the Championship match with Elena Vesnina in straight sets 6-2 and 6-3. In Head-To-Head match ups Wozniacki now holds a 5 - 1 advantage over Vesnina who is ranked Number 56 in the world rankings. Vesnina played well in the first set on Sunday and held an Advantage during a deuce game to break Wozniacki's serve, but the Danish blonde and Charleston favorite ended up winning that game and took complete control of the match. Vesnina upset the Number Two seed and 2010 Champion Sam Stosur earlier in the week and her strong ground strokes were on display in the Championship match, which was no doubt a building block for a rising player like the 24-year old Russian.
