What happens when a rising golf superstar and a top tennis player start dating? A romance that spans the globe.

Wozniacki, ranked ninth in the world, lost one set in the tournament. She dominated her 19-year-old opponent and completed the match in 1 hour, 14 minutes. The 57th-ranked Beck was playing in her first WTA tournament final.

Victory gave Wozniacki her 21st career title. She never went beyond the fourth round in a grand slam this year.

"21st title, it's great," the 23-year-old Dane said. "I'm still young, I have a few more years to go, so to be at 21 already is just great. This is what you practice for."

Even though Beck brought plenty of fans from just across the border to cheer her on, she never got into the match.

"I was nervous today," Beck said.
