"She's so confident. So you have to stay there".

The U.S. Open champion repeatedly found the net in the first set before regaining her rhythm, taking Zhang to five break points in the first game of the second set to help turn the tide of the match.

The 20-year-old had sustained the injury during her semi-final match against Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova in the recently-concluded China Open.

This was Osaka's second tournament since she defeated Serena Williams in the US Open final on September 8.

"But my back's sort of been bothering me since the beginning of the tournament. I didn't go too much for aces or fast serves. just tried to hit the angles and placement and that helped".

Caroline Wozniacki defeated Anastasija Sevastova 6-3, 6-3 to win the China Open and her third WTA title of the year on Sunday.

Wozniacki's victory is bound to boost her confidence ahead of this month's season-ending WTA Finals in Singapore, where the 28-year-old is the defending champion.

Sevastova retired from tennis in May 2013 and studied leisure management instead after becoming frustrated by injuries.

Unseeded Sevastova needed one hour and 31 minutes to win and reach the final, the biggest in her career.

"I enjoyed my life also away from tennis, but again coming back, it's a long journey to come back", Sevastova said, reflecting on her extended time out of the game.

In the men's Beijing Open, top seed Juan Martin del Potro progressed to the final by walkover against Italy's Fabio Fognini.
