Shrieking with each shot, Sharapova regained her accuracy thereafter. By the time she led 4-love in the second set, she had a 27-4 advantage in winners.
She went ahead 5-2 in the final set before Wozniacki staged one last rally, which fell short amid the fuss at the finish.
"Maria started off really well and played aggressively," Wozniacki said. "She played some good tennis out there. I tried to do my best, and it just wasn't enough."
Sharapova improved to 17-1 in three-set matches since the beginning of 2011.
