Caroline Wozniacki celebrates in her match against Francesca Schiavone

Caroline Wozniacki will never be called a quitter. The 20-year-old Dane lost a match to Samantha Stosur to be in limbo of her No. 1 spot on Wednesday after a two-set loss to the Aussie. But on Thursday, she regained her No. 1 spot with a three-set win over Francesca Schiavone 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 in the WTA Doha, Qatar Championships for the round robin tournament that invites just 8 of the premier women to take part in. It was a clutch performance, as the Danish sensation was one set down to come back in an-attacking fashion.

Wozniacki is just the 10th woman to attain the No. 1 spot at the end of the year, and the second youngest since Martina Hingis reached No. 1 in 2000.

“I am very proud what I have achieved this year. It’s something I’ve dreamed about since I was a little girl,” said Wozniacki, after her match.

Wozniacki has reached the Semifinals with a 2-1 record, and will face Stosur (2-1) once again in the Maroon Group. Kim Clijsters (2-0) will face Vera Zvonareva (2-0) in the White Group. The winner will face each other for the championship.
