Angelique Kerber of Germany beat top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 6-4 to win the e-Boks Open on Sunday and her second title of the year.

The second-seeded Kerber, who won her first WTA tournament at the Paris Indoors in February, broke the Dane's serve three times in each set to earn the title in 1 hour, 38 minutes. Wozniacki had sought her third straight title in her home tournament, but couldn't match the 24-year-old German, breaking only twice in each set.

''I am very happy to win my second title,'' Kerber told Denmark's TV2. ''Caroline is a good player, it was a hard game. I used my entire capacity here today.

Wozniacki was stoical in defeat.

''Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose,'' she said. ''Now I will go back to Monaco tomorrow and prepare for the clay-court season,''

Earlier Sunday, Kimiko Date-Krumm and Rika Fujiwara of Japan secured the doubles title by beating Sofia Arvidsson of Sweden and Estonia's Kaia Kanepi, 6-2, 4-6, 10-5.
