She becomes the first Dane to ever win a major singles title, and reclaims the world number one spot that she last held six years ago.

It has taken Wozniacki 11 years, 43 majors, 256 tournaments, 772 matches and untold hours of toil and tears to shed her tag as tennis's most accomplished talent without a major win. Halep looked stable to hold for 5-all but arguably the best point of the night from Wozniacki set up match point, which ended with a backhand in the net from Halep.
"I cried (after the match) but now I'm smiling", she said. And then again, "It was an incredible match, an incredible fight and again I'm sorry". While for Wozniacki, 27, she has also played in two grand slam finals, but lost out both times at the US Open in 2009 and 2014.

Commentating for ESPN, tennis great Chris Evert said Halep's coach, Australian Darren Cahill, had expressed concerns about her fitness during a hallway chat earlier that day.
Wozniacki turned the deciding set around after taking a medical timeout at 3-4 in the third set - breaking twice thereafter to claim the £2.3million cheque for the victor. But she found some last reserves of energy to reel off three games and leave Halep sucking up a third grand slam final loss. "I was probably thinking: 'I had opportunities to go up 3-0 and 4-1 and I didn't take them.' She was playing really well".
She saved two break points from 0-40 down but couldn't deny Halep the third opportunity.
Wozniacki regrouped, though, and had one hand on the trophy when she won the first set.
Caroline Wozniacki has broken her Grand Slam duck and is tipping her beloved Liverpool to taste Premier League title glory in the near future. "I couldn't have scripted it any better".
Halep rallied in the second, on either side of treatment from the trainer for her blood pressure to be checked amid the hot and humid conditions. "We've had ups and down, but you've been there every step of the way". I still stick with these predictions based on what I have seen this tournament.
