Karolina Pliskova.

Karolina Pliskova secured the Qatar Total Open title on Saturday with a straight-sets win over Caroline Wozniacki in Doha.

The world number three from the Czech Republic, who like Danish player Wozniacki has a home in Monte Carlo, triumphed 6-3 6-4 to land her second trophy of the year.

It was Pliskova’s first win in four matches against the one-time top-ranked Wozniacki, and came in the first match between the pair since 2014.

Victory gives 24-year-old Pliskova prize-money of 132,740 US dollars (£106,950).

She began 2017 with a title in Brisbane, before reaching the Australian Open quarter-finals, having kick-started her career last summer by reaching the US Open final.

“I think I’m having a great start to the year which is always important,” Pliskova said.

“I was trying really hard this week. I’m really happy with the wins here.”

She added, in a video posted by the WTA: “Last year was a breakthrough for me, especially with the final at the US Open – it was my biggest result.

“It gave me a lot of confidence and that’s still continuing this year.

“I’m really excited to get the trophy here.”
